Which is more popular in Russia?
Ice hockey or Basketball?
I had an argument with a friend about this issue and i'd like to know the opinion of the indigenous.
In terms of tradition, attendance in the games, tv viewvership, etc...
Also there's any other sport more popular than any of those besides football?
tennis, artistic ice skating, athletics?
You kinda forgot volleyball ( speaking of tradition, this is prolly the team sport that awarded the most russia in the last decades along with ice hockey) and even handball
They also play rugby and are even competitive for the 7 players/team rugby (which is the one that could become a new olympic sport)
Nevertheless ice hockey league should prolly be the most popular along with football.
