Sport in Nepal

Nepal is no different to most other countries in the world in terms of the popularity of football. The Nepal National Football Team is by far the most popular team in the country and has been competing internationally with mixed results.

However, football is not the only popular sport. Cricket is also gaining ground in Nepal when it comes to popularity and sheer crowd pull. The National Cricket Academy was established in January 2013, which provides their players with a base for continuous training in preparation for their upcoming competitions both locally and internationally. The greatest achievement so far for the Nepalese national cricket team was qualifying for the 2014 for the ICC World T20 held in Bangladesh.
