One of the effects of the pandemic is that sports They were placed in a more public spotlight, so that people who did not even know they existed began to monitor them in the face of the drought in traditional sports.

But the truth is that sports Y traditional sports they do not share a thematic nexus, that is to say, what is consumed from each one in each country is very different.

They must also be added cultural variables, because the games of sports They vary in popularity according to the region, which in other words means that the most popular of esports is not the same as in Germany.

And the latter is a situation that also applies to traditional sports.

To provide a more complete insight into the preferences of sports Y traditional sports, Nielsen produced a new report called Traditional sports vs. Esports rankings and that will be interesting for those who have a particular fixation on data.

The report dealt with six countries -China, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom- and it was developed from a survey that was applied to people whose age range ranges from 16 to 40 years.

There are two preference tables, one for sports and another for traditional sports, and they are as follows:
