Why is football more popular than hockey?

Look yes, play no: ice hockey has a special status among the population


Latest federal study

Ice hockey is one of the most popular sports. The popularity is mainly limited to watching. Ice hockey is rarely played in Switzerland.

The Swiss Federal Office for Sport has presented a new study that deals with the practice of sports in Switzerland. Ice hockey, at least one of the biggest sports in Switzerland in terms of attention, is very rarely played. For this reason, 1.1% of the Swiss population venture out onto the ice. For example, you are almost as good as shooting, sailing or diving, like Hockeyfans.ch analyzed. Seven times as many people play football. The quota is even worse in the female part of the population, where ice hockey is at the end of the list. Obviously, the enthusiasm for fast and intense sport on the ice is great for spectators, but even exercising is apparently too challenging in this case.
