Bernie Ecclestone's Formula 1 is the richest sport. Mainly because of the amount of money that sponsors put into the sport, it means that the drivers get paid a vast amount of money, and the cost of making the racing cars isn't cheap.

  • Other Rich Sports
Soccer is a close second as the richest sport. The major reason for this being that it is the most commonly played sport worldwide. It is the most popular sport among different societies, because of the ease of understanding the rules, and the most basic equipment isn't hard to come by. Some sports are restricted to certain countries because of the cost associated with the up-keep of the equipment and the training.

Golf is also very rich, mainly because of the cash prizes that are awarded upon the winning of major championships, and the funding through the sponsors. There are also cash bonuses based on each individual golfers' contracts.

The NBA is also a rich sport, purely because of the the amount of money in circulation regarding the salaries of the athletes involved. The NBA employs players that have traded between teams, and negotiated contracts, that are some of the most expensive contracts across any sporting body.

  • The Money Invested into a Sport
From another perspective, there is a lot of money invested in horse racing. It normally requires a vast amount of money to be even actively involved in horse racing, so the amount of stagnant money that is involved with horse racing is probably more than the cash involved with Formula 1. However, it is the amount of money that is actively invested in the sport.

I think it's Golf and tennis. Rich people play these sports. I also tried to do it, but now I understand that I am not an athlete. I'm more of a fan. I like to bet on sports. For example, I analyze forecasts on this site http://1xbet.co.ke, draw conclusions and bet. I have a great success in this business. I want to tell you that if you do not have the strength to play a big sport, then you can bet on the sport. It's convenient!

I guess the ones that are most popular like football and basketball maybe. Another unobvious one is horse racing because when it comes to horse racing there are a lot of people who are involved in betting. I even started doing that myself after I discovered the best horse racing tipsters. And F1 definitely should be on the list because car manufacturers like Ferrari, Mercedes, Maclaren and renault invest huge amounts of money in developing the fastest cars in the world. Red Bull also brings a lot of money to the party and basically, any team spends tons of money to be in the business.

Good question. I like several answers and in general I agree with them. My opinion is that the most richest sport is football. Just check budget of some popular football club in Europe and you will understand me. Like example you can read about Paris Saint-Germain, this team is one of the best in France.

Greetings, I am very interested in soccer recently and I was curious to learn more about it as the most popular sport. I signed up for a soccer section and do it 3 times a week. I really like this kind of sport, as I'm watching my body and maybe even want to lose some weight. I also often bet on sports and I do it thanks to https://mega-pari.in/app/ . To be exact, here I simply choose a site for betting which I liked the most and then try to earn some money by betting.
