The human race as a whole has always been a fan of activity. The ancient Greeks invented the Olympics, for crying out loud. Not only does the body need exercise to help with basic function, but activity, especially pertaining to sports, is one of the things that drives the entire world and gives them motivation to live. It sounds dramatic, but people would literally die if they didn’t have sports to watch, and often if they weren’t able to play the sports for themselves.
Since sporting events are such a driving force of society, they’re a large reason that people travel. The Olympics today are held every 2 years, right? The Summer Olympics rotate with the Winter ones, and people get to have their fill of the best athletes in the world every two years on national television, or they can choose to go in person. Sports teams in cities also drive tourism through the roof. People will travel across the world in order to watch their favorite team play.
