Results of Poll Sport of the Year 2012 - Exciting Duel Between Cycling and Football


The biggest Czech survey about sports took place on during Autumn and September. You can see its results in the nice infographics below.

Would you guess that the first places were taken by ice hockey and football? You would guess almost right. The Top 3 was filled in by cycling. The most popular sports in the Czech Republic are:

  1. Football

  2. Cycling

  3. Ice hockey

  4. Volleyball

  5. Swimming

However, ice hockey failed in how often the Czechs play it. The difference between the first 2 sports and ice hockey in this matter was huge.  It is not always true, that what people like the most they do the most.

The poll also showed that the Czechs are relatively active in doing sports. They do sports 130 days every year. It would be interesting to compare these results with foreign countries.

We were surprised by the amount of people (25 %) who count themselves among competitive athletes, i.e., those who do sports and compete in an organized way, but they are not paid professionals.

Rather than words, the following infographics can help you get a picture of Czech sporting activity. You can display it in full size.

We would gladly offer to the media the Infographics to download (different sizes) or complementary data and other formats of output. Please contact us at Here is how the infograpgics looks. If interested, we will be happy to provide you with English version.
