Most Popular Sports in the USHere are opinions and answers from contributors on WikiAnswers:
  • Gridiron (American Football) is easily the most popular sport in the US.
  • Attendance for College Football is over 30 million fans per year, TV ratings for college and professional football, especially the Super Bowl, dwarf even the best baseball ratings (did anyone watch this year's World Series?), and high school football is nearly a religion in many states (Mississippi, Alabama,Louisiana, Florida, Ohio, Texas et al).
  • The TV ratings for the 2006 Ohio State vs. Michigan game had a 13.4 rating. That means that nearly 15 million households and almost 22 million viewers watched that one game. The attendance at the game was over 105,000. Throw in Alabama-Auburn, Rutgers-Cincinnati, and the rest of the games on "Rivalry Saturday" and the number of viewers would be greater than any of the above mentioned sports marquis games. The highest rated World Series game garnered only a 10.4 rating. NASCAR's Atlanta 500 race pulled in a meager 4.8 rating.
  • For the week of 10/23-29/06, 63.2 million people watched regular season Gridiron (american football) while 47.9 million watched the Championship (World Series) of baseball. Gridiron is King in the US.
  • Baseball, basketball, football (soccer) and any other sport that you want to name are nowhere nearly as popular as Gridiron (american football) in the US.
  • Soccer
  • The most popular sport in the United States is Baseball because it is America's "Past Time Sport". Baseball has been played for over 100 years.
  • NASCAR

Basketball and Gridiron (american football) have the most participants.

Gridiron both NFL and college has the highest attendances, but has very low participation levels.

The most played sport in the US is Basketball, without a doubt. Basketball is the most played sport, though. Kids play basketball as the main sport in elementary school and in middle school, as well as high school. In certain areas of the country, some sports might be played more than others. For the entire United States basketball remains number one as the most played sports.
