Football in winter and then tennis in summer I think
Football is the most popular but martial arts are becoming increasingly popular lately.
Football is the most popular sport in Europe and then depending where in Europe you are, other popular sports would be cricket, basketball and volleyball.
Football is the most popular sport in Europe and across the world. That is why some people get annoyed when people call it soccer and American football football. How can a game where you use your hands, not feet, has pauses every 10 seconds and is only played in one country be "football" it would be more appropriate to call it handball!
Football comes top by a long way. I don't know which sport comes in second place but nobody has mentioned golf and athletics yet. The PGA European Tour goes from strength to strength each year and most of the big IAAF Diamond League events are held in Europe. The Wikipedia entry for 'Sport in Europe' claims that ice hockey is the second most popular sport in Europe but doesn't provide a citation.
It's an interesting question because it raises the further question: How do you measure how popular a sport is? Is it based on the number of playing participants, the number of spectators, or both?
