Sports Games to Watch Together!

  • Football also known as soccer in some countries, is a globally popular sport that involves two teams of eleven players each. The objective is to score more goals than the opposing team within a specified time, usually 90 minutes. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. Only goalkeepers are permitted to use their hands to play the ball, while all other players use their feet. Football is governed internationally by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

  • Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). The game is played on a rectangular court, with players required to hit a rubber ball over a net and into the opponent's court. Points are scored when the opponent is unable to return the ball within the prescribed boundaries of the court. The sport's four major championships, often referred to as the "Grand Slams", are the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open.

  • Basketball is a team sport where two teams, usually consisting of five players each, score points by shooting a ball into the opponent's hoop. The game is played on a rectangular court, and the team with the most points at the end of four quarters, each usually lasting twelve minutes in professional leagues, wins the game. The sport is known for its high-scoring nature and the strategy involved in offensive and defensive play. The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the premier professional basketball league in the world.

  • Ice hockey is a fast-paced team sport played on an ice rink. Two teams of six players each (including the goalkeeper) try to shoot a rubber puck into the opponent's net to score goals. Players skate across the ice, passing the puck and blocking the opposition's attempts to score. The sport is known for its physicality, with body checking and high-speed collisions common. The National Hockey League (NHL) is the highest level for men's ice hockey in the world.

  • Horse racing is an equestrian performance sport that typically involves two or more horses ridden by jockeys (or sometimes driven without riders) over a set distance for competition. The sport is ancient in origin and is popular worldwide, often associated with gambling. Races vary widely in format, including flat racing, jump racing, harness racing, and endurance racing. Key events such as the Kentucky Derby, the Grand National, and the Melbourne Cup draw large crowds and significant betting action each year.
