You can guess as many as you want, with an objective of them being in the top 10.......hopefully, guessing numero uno!
Base this on how many fans that sport has, not participants.
not sure what you use for the ranking could be many different ( Income,fan attendance, TV market or particapation just to name a few ) but my rankings are as follows.
1) Volleyball, followed by soccer, Cricket, tennis, baseball, track and field to include (marathon type running) Rugby, American football, car racing, Swimming, basketball, table tennis.
so there is ten
Wow frey, you are quick to think of so many.
I updated to specifically mention the list should be based on fans...........which would include all people that follow the sport at least part of the time.
thinking soccer is number 1. then it falls off fast as the populace now just walks around staring down at their cell phones with their thumbs moving all about
... probably soccer...pppffffffftttttttttt
--- Golf & Horse Racing For Me !!!
Yeah, we know your favorite horse last month, had a name in common with a wheat trading expert.

2 of you had the top one.........soccer, frey had it number 2 but had lots of guesses that made the top 10.
Wondered why the heck Cricket is so popular?
Had never actually watched even a minute of Cricket. Learned something new. Looks like a sandlot, discombobulated form or baseball (-:
