imagine it's the Olympics and no one's watching. It's not So bad, of course, finally, more than three million people watched the ice hockey final in the ZDF – and the shortly after five in the Morning. Among the 50 sports with the most spectators, not a single one of the winter games from Pyeongchang in the year 2018. Also Tennis, athletics, Swimming, Motorsport and a variety of team sports, did not make it list in this ranking. For football, football and again football. 50 Times of football, to be exact.
It is the Image of a sporty mono-culture, this is not, however, suggest very easy to use. So many people watch football is because of Germany's favorite Sport is so omnipresent and you pass him? Or, the channels show as much football, because the audience demands it?
however, the dominance of football is overwhelming. The private channels you can hardly blame. The rate is the most important criterion and as long as so many viewers turn on when there is a semibedeutenden countries game, you will plunge yourself even more on football rights.More about
monotony in the German Sport, football, football, football - is there anything else?Jörg Leopold
That even in the case of the public broadcasters in sports, with the exception of the winter season – almost with football can be equated, there is a Problem. ARD and ZDF have commissioned the diversity of life and thus also of the Sports, even the third party programs but often more regional League football as a championship final in Basketball, Handball or ice hockey. Do not create it, although pretty sure not even in the Top 50, a good ratio is the only criterion for good Sport.
