Football is the Nation's Game
Football is as healthy and successful as it has ever been. The game has more spectators, participants, revenues and media interest than at any time in its history: * FA Cup Final 2004 viewed live in over 150 countries * 4 of top 5 UK TV sport broadcasts 2004 were England's matches at Euro 2004. * FAPL average match attendance 34,324 in 2002, highest in Europe * The Football League is the largest, most successful and watched 'second' league in Europe Football is the nation's game in more than the spectator sense; the scope and reach of the game across various levels of participation is considerable: * 7 million participants, plus 5 million in schools * 500,000 volunteers * 37,500 clubs, including 9,000 youth clubs * 2,000 competitions * 32,000 schools (17,000 primary) * 30,000 FA-qualified coaches * 27,000 FA-qualified referees * 45,000 pitches (21,000 facilities)
England's national sport is cricket although to many people football (soccer) is seen as there national sport. Football is there most popular sport.
There are 7 million participants in organised football in the UK, plus 5 million in schools - I would guess children is around the 3 million mark.
1.5 billion play football
how do they do football
Football is not the most popular sport in the UK, surprisingly it's fishing
the most popular favourite sport in the U.K. is football and cricket.
Yes Very its the most popular sport in the UK :)
The UK's is soccer or for them, Football
I have the answer but let me just tell you, Its not football.
Apparently the most popular sports in the UK in 1995 were tennis, rugby and football. According to the link below.
i guess it would be soccer , or swimming
Cricket - it is the main sport in most of the high population county's such as India... it might not be big in the USA or UK but it is.
My guess would be that football (soccer) would be the most popular sport in the United Kingdom. I've met a person from there and he is a football fanatic!
For participating, it is angling. For watching, it is football.
