July 3, 2015

This weekend we celebrate our Nation’s independence in our backyards with our loved ones; grilling franks and burgers on the grill and with a cold one in our hands. Because family-time isn’t complete with a little family debate, QuintEvents has decided to rank the top 4 greatest and most-loved sports in America!

America is truly a melting pot of eclectic people and our sports are no different! We love competition and the bragging rights that come with it. Check out our list of the top 4 sports in America. Share with your family this weekend and let the debate flow to something a little more positive for once!

Football

If baseball is America’s past time, then football is its passion. Thanks to the rise of the television, American football has become the country’s premier spectator sport.  Pro Football is the most popular sport in America for at least the 30th straight year. This is according to a survey taken last year by the Harris Poll, which has been asking adult fans about their favorite sport since 1985.

Perhaps it is the amount of ways you can watch football that makes it so easy to love. You have the annual “world championship” game, the Super Bowl, college football’s various Bowl games, and many more throughout the year.

Indeed, no other sport carries as much pride within America as football.

Baseball

No other sport in America invokes more nostalgia among Americans than baseball. It is considered “the national past time.” Millions of baseball fans fill stadiums all over the country to celebrate one of the oldest traditions.

We grow up playing the game in our neighborhoods with friends and family creating memories that remain with us for our lives. It’s moments like those that keep our love for the sport going! Sure, TV ratings suggest otherwise, but, that metric ignores other strong indicators like local fan-base and enduring cultural relevance that baseball still matters.

Basketball

Basketball is now a fixture in most (if not all) of the countries in the world. Last season, the NBA boasted 92 international players hailing from 39 different countries. It seems international players are eager for an opportunity to get into one of America’s most popular sports, it’s not hard to see why basketball has become such a loved sport in the U.S.

Basketball is the third-favorite sport of young adults (ages 18-29), behind only football and soccer. Part of that is that the NBA has one of the most well-liked and well-respected commissioners in the any sport; although it may not seem a big deal, having a well-respected commissioner keeps fan bases united across all teams.

Moto Racing

Moto Sports including auto-car and motorcycle racing, is without a doubt one of the biggest sports in the United States. NASCAR is the biggest organization in the USA, which organizes races in America. Motor Sports is the 2nd most watched sport after Football in America.

Motor sports are widely popular in the United States, with NASCAR, Formula One, and MotoGP available there’s something for everyone in the family!
