Football Participation

In a recent article published by Bloomberg research done by sports marketing surveys and presented by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association. Quoted in the article was a discussion of the percentage decrease in football and the rise in rugby and lacrosse in the united states.

“Participation in tackle football fell 21.1 percent from 2008-2013, while rugby and lacrosse experienced the biggest gains, according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association. ”

These numbers represent a five year trend and that differential among the three sports. There are many factors to be taken in when looking at this data particularly the growing concern among parents about head injury and the dissemination of sports beyond their original starting location.
