Football is easily the most popular sport in the UK, but it however does not win the tag of “most exciting sport”, with that award going to Athletics, according a recent survey conducted among the British public.

40% of those polled thought football was “boring” or “very boring”. The most snoozeworthy sport appears to be golf, with 70% of those polled calling it “boring” or “very boring”. Not far behind were American Football (59%) and cricket (58%).

Interestingly, 46% of those polled thought rugby league was boring, more than the 39% figure for rugby union. 41% of those polled thought union was “exciting or very exciting”, compared to 43% for football, 34% for league, 43% for tennis and 47% for athletics
