There has never been an agreement as to what makes one game more popular than the other because not all sports are related with the same origin and practice as some are considered ancestral inheritance while others are said to stem from practice.We cannot all support the same events due to the fact that different people have varying preferences as well what we aim to achieve from a sport differ with some looking for pleasure and fun and others taking it as a means of making a living.Below is an analysis of factors which determined the popular games in 2018.
The attractiveness of a game to the general public can definitely win it a front row in popularity index as people seek for something they can spend their free time doing or watching.Adittionally, if a sport attracts a lot of interest then it can have more people watching even if they are not participating and that already is popularity created by the media in collaboration with companies which provide financial support to those sports.If all sports were televised by mainstream media, then all sports could be at the same level but the corporates can be at loss because of lack of audience for their advertisements which they place on the media during such events as well as through sponsorship to teams and individuals who participate on events.
Every sport has a notion which is used to determine its purpose to the public and acceptance can be determined by the purpose the sport is seen to perform.Sports are driven by financial backing from corporates and therefore, for large multinationals spanning across different markets they are looking for those sports which have support from different cultural setups and this has driven some sports down the popularity ladder because they are only designed for a specific group of people.The more information is available about a sorting activity, the more likely such sport can get people’s attention and acceptance.If a sport is meant and designed to bring together a certain class or group of people then its popularity can definitely be low.
Another phenomenal element which can contribute to the popularity of a sport is the level of excitement brought by the game.Sporting activities which bring out enthusiasm is likely to attract more people than a dull event with not excitement.When a sport is inclusive of many cultures it is bound to attract many people from different walks of life due to what is seen as equality among cultures.
In most cases, some of the talents are passed from one generation to the other and that has made some sports quite relevant over a long period of time.As a generation grows they employ some of the practices left behind by their predecessors which means unless a sport has existed for considerably a longer period of time it is not easy to find such a sport more attractive than those that have been around for a while.
