3 Differences between Basketball and Football Fans

David Beckham

Basketball and football have their equal share of fan base around the world. The American National Basketball League is so famous it’s even watched by villagers in Indonesia and Malaysia, and likewise, football has its own dedicated sport channels in many countries. By and large however, fans of both games are quite different in nature. Below are three distinct differences between them: Football is naturally a game that develops in the minds of children from a young age, and as they grow up, external influences strengthen their senses towards the game, and eventually everyone has a football club to cherish and discuss of; whereas for basketball, normally a fan falls in love after being purely exposed from the outside to learn the sport, either in school or college.

At the same time, in adults, football is largely seen among people who have either played football or are currently players of the same. Basketball on the other hand comes to grasp by environmental reasons most of the times, and this is regardless of literacy or backgrounds. This doesn’t necessarily mean football is not watched by people from the rural areas. Last but not least, basketball fans are quite open to sensitivity; whereas football fans are quite sensitive to external environments, with even a small spark of wrong words leading to big bloody fights.

    For my opinion the most deadly difference between football and basketball is the sudden mistakes and their affects. In football, just a small mistake may cause the defeat for the whole game, in basketball it does not.

    This difference affects the audience too. Basketball fans are more excited during the game, they can not follow all the tactics and all the mistakes. But football audience can measures the game and the tacticts more carefully because they have enough time and calming moments during the game.
