Top Ten Greatest Sports Leagues

The Top Ten
1 English Premier League

Has to be number one! It is watched worldwide. Most popular sports league of the most popular sport in the world. Has some of the best Soccer clubs in the world. The World Game.

Greatest league in the world, it's fast, quick, end to end, passionate and the trophy is the greatest looking trophy known to earth. La Liga is a close 2nd and no American league in any sport can touch the premier league for its global appeal only the world cup or champions league would be higher but they aren't as passionate as the premier league

2 National Football League

It is pretty obvious that NFL is the best league. It has an average attendance of 67 000. Premier League is only 38 000. La Liga is only 26 000. IPL is 30 000. MLB is 28 000. NFL has the highest average attendance of any sports league. Just look at the facts. NFL is the best league.

Why is this number 1? No ones even heard of this stupid league other than Americans. Premier league is a billion times better. American football sucks.

Nobody cares about soccer. I can't name a single soccer team to save my life. Boring! The NFL is infinitely better and more entertaining.

3 La Liga
4 National Hockey League

Best league ever! Better than any other hockey league that exists and will ever exist. Amazing talent and unmatched skill

Players from around the world and so much could happen in one period

5 Indian Premier League

I'm an Indian living in the United States, and my favorite sport is soccer and I follow Barcelona in the La Liga, but I have to say that the IPL is the most fun month of the year. Especially if you live in the Indian areas in the US. In school the whole day is about IPL. Bets are being placed in school, fights are happening, and everyone is hyped for this 50 day span of T20! IPL turned boring Test-Cricket into T20 hype, and that's what us Indians need. You never see Indians watch an entire Test match because us Indians feel hype for the game of cricket and want to support an explosive game, which IPL offers. Also, #MUMBAIINDIANS

6 Major League Baseball

Greatest as in most positive or numerous or outstanding? Major League Baseball has a lot of that covered. The season is most of the year, so there are opportunities to see a variety of teams play nearly every day. Tickets are generally affordable items (as opposed to some sports that have fewer games and prohibitive ticket prices). It has extremely strong revenue (7+billion dollars US/year) and attendance (~75 million/year), a competitive field of teams that draw on strong local support, and features what is, in my humble opinion, possibly the greatest show on earth-- Baseball. It is a sport that rewards commitment, focus, intelligence, perseverance, and incredible mental fortitude. When positive characteristics are cultivated and honed, this sport produces some of the most riveting athletic performances possible.

I love sports in general, but while my hypothetical child will learn to be familiar with soccer, wrestling, golf, tennis, running, basketball, and a whole myriad of other sports-- baseball will be the one I most hope they fall in love with, so I may share it with them.

No league is perfect. Drugs, performance enhancing and otherwise, could have been handled better. Player compensation has been a long and arduous road, but modern players are overall well compensated (in the big leagues, at least). Big money contracts between ownership and T.V. distorting the presentation is-- of course-- always present. However, MLB has done a WAY better job cultivating its' garden on those fronts than nearly any other sporting body. Hell, they don't even have a punishment for players testing positive for weed (as opposed to other substances). If that's not a progressive step in the right direction, along with a newer emphasis on player safety, then I don't know what is.

That's all.

7 National Basketball Association

It's just common sense it isn't about best sport it's the league and quite simply the NBA is excellent.

8 Bundesliga
9 Champions League

I know it's a tournament but it is still a league of Champions and great teams from each European country. There is no experience better than your team being in the Champions League as the knockout stages are extremely intense and when your team scores and is equal or higher on aggregate you get so excited.

10 Italian Serie A
The Contenders
11 Australian Football League

To win the AFL you must be a great club unlike other sports where you just need a rich owner.

Very fast pace game always exciting to watch even if the contest is one sided.

Come on, Australian football is awesome!

12 Ultimate Fighting Championship
13 Brazil Serie A
14 Pakistan Super League
