What are the 2 most popular outdoor sports in America?

May 17, 2009


I was reading an article the other day talking about television networks and their advertising revenues when I came across this interesting fact.

The 2 most popular outdoor sports are not football, baseball, or soccer, and obviously it’s not basketball, either since those events are held mainly indoors. The way they measure what the most popular outdoor sport is by attendance at events, and number of people generally involved.These sports are outdoors, not like basketball. Outdoors.

The first of the 2 most popular outdoor activities or sports is birding, or birdwatching.How is birding a sport? For the most part there are no teams playing against each other. It is individual one person against nature .Birding and fishing have a lot in common as sports. They both require finding and identifying the animals and they both have field competions.

You would be amazed at how many people are birding these days and it is a low-cost hobby or sport to participate in.  One last thing I want to mention about the expenses involved in this sport is that many birders invest in a quality pair of bird binoculars to get the most out of their birdwatching trips.

The second most popular sport is Nacar Racing and this amazed me when I read this fact.What makes this so popular? There are lots of NASCAR events all over the country and thousands of fans go to NASCAR events.

Did you know it would take 5 or 6 full house games at Fenway Park to match the number of people at one popular NASCAR event.No wonder NASCAR is listed as one of the top two outdoor sports activities.
