Good live sports include football, rugby and ice hockey. Soccer and basketball are also entertaining spectator sports. Basketball appeals to live audiences due to the skill and tactical sensibility required to play the sport.
Called "football" internationally, soccer provides an exciting spectacle that appeals to audiences young and old. Though lacrosse is a skillful sport, the small size of the lacrosse ball limits the appeal of the sport for spectators with poor vision. The very same dynamic holds true for hurling. Though basketball and cricket have entertaining aspects, lengthy match times can limit the appeal of these sports for some.
