Complete List of Sports from Around the World

Here is our alphabetical list of over 750 sports played around the world. In addition to individual sports, the list includes some names of sport groups, styles and codes. This could be considered a sport dictionary or encyclopedia. There is undoubtedly more sports than are listed here, there are many regional sports, modified rules and new sports being developed every day (see new sports).

The core of this list is the 200+ recognized sports with national or international federations. There is also a comprehensive list of team sports that are played around the world.

You can find even more sports described in the section about unusual sports, and there are plenty of sports that are no longer played, which we have listed as extinct sports.

How to get on this list? See What is a sport? If there is a sport not listed or incorrect, please make a comment below. I have made a list of questionable sports, those that may or may not warrant inclusion on this list.

Below is list of just the names of all the sports we are aware of with a very brief summary of each sport. Follow the links for a more detailed description of the sport. If you are on a desktop, you can try clicking CTRL-F on the keyboard and search the page.
