There are several reasons why some people do not take an interest in sport. First, their parents place too much emphasis on academic performance and sign them up for tuition classes. This may also be due to facilities. Sports facilities are not always up to par and insufficient sports equipment may discourage an otherwise enthusiastic student. Another reason could be poor condition of the school courts and fields. Then there are the financial factors involved. Many students cannot afford to take part in competitive sports due to the high costs of tickets and fees.
Secondly, sport is popular with new generations. According to a Morning Consult study, 53% of Centennials and 69% of Millennials are interested in sports. This is significant because the United States is the benchmark for sporting entertainment in the world. In the United States, 58% of men are interested in sport. Interestingly, sport participation is more common among adults, as opposed to youth. This is largely due to the fact that Millennials are more likely to be sports enthusiasts than their younger counterparts.
