Association football (called soccer in a few countries, simply football in most) is by far the most popular and most played sport in the world. This is verified by almost every independent study ever conducted in the past few decades.

Various other sports have a claim to being the next-ranked sports in the world; most are likely to be in the top ten or so. They include, not in any particular order:

  • cricket;
  • field hockey;
  • ice hockey;
  • volleyball;
  • swimming (when considered as a whole, not individual pursuits);
  • basketball;
  • baseball;
  • motor vehicle racing/motorsport;
  • golf;
  • cycling;
  • rugby
  • tennis
