How many types of sports are out there as of this date is beyond anyone’s guess. While some sports are popular and got their world wide acceptance, some sports are so obscure that hardly anyone knows about them aside from few people that participate in them.
Some popular sports are soccer (known as football in the Asian and European countries but known as Soccer in the North America due to having another game with the same name), cricket (not very popular in the North America but has its massive popularity in the rest of the world including Europe, Asia, and Australia), sports fishing (widely popular in just about any country), baseball, ice hockey, etc.
