Here in Vietnam the King sport is Soccer!
I enjoy watching it. I used to play a little when I'm younger, then watching more than playing and now even no time for watching much :( .

I know the King in the US & the Philippines is Basket Ball. In UK it's cricket above soccer.
Right?

It really looks like football is popular everywhere :) Well, I rather prefer to watch and in fact I don't know many girls who 'd like to play that game. Football is rather for boys...

In Vietnam, football is the most popular sport. If you come to Vietnam, you will see a lot of people playing football everywhere. From the pavements to alleys, children play football everyday no matter how weather is. Particularly, when the football competition is celebrated in Vietnam, you can see clearly the love of the fans. It is very exciting and friendly. When the national team wins a championship or just tight match, citizens will rush out the streets and celebrate the victory.
What is love ?

Americans love American's football, baseball, and basketball. Players from those three categories can reach millions in salary.

Postby damon » Fri Mar 18, 2005 9:31 pm

I´m from Colombia. In my country the most popular sport is Soccer. Although we like every sport where a Colombian is playing or particpating. I think in South America, the most popular sport is Soccer. you can play it in any place, only you need a ball and four objects for make the porterys. (how do you say ¨porterias¨in english?)

I am from Hong Kong, from my pont of view, the most popular sport here is badminton.Since there are not many open space for Hong Kong people to do excerise at outdoor, so there are not many outdoor sportsgroung in Hong Kong like tennis court. Also, the Hong Kongers are very busy here, so they do not have much time to do excerises, so I hope in the future, there will be more outdoor sportsgroungs , like tennis court in Hong Kong, since i love playing tennis.

Well no you are wrong. I lived in London for 14 years and believe me football is the king of sports in the UK. Cricket is popular but only in summer. Football, especially the Premieship is the most watched league in the world too..long live football.
