Sport is one of those things that you’ll have to go a long way to find somebody that has no interest in. Whether it’s football, cricket, rugby, swimming or athletics, most people will have some sort of interest in a sport, be it watching or taking part.
And because of this, there are countless numbers of sport blogs on the internet for you to keep up with your chosen sport on.
There are many quality sports blogs out there; general sites that cover a wide range of sports and sport-specific blogs that will focus on one individual sport and specialise in the ins and outs of the that sport.
We’ve compiled a list of the best sport blogs for you to check out and enjoy. We’ll cover a range of sports and also include a few general sport blogs too.
What’s our criteria? We’ll be including blogs that provide genuinely good content and expert insights to their specific sport. We’ll also take into account how easy the site is to use, design will play a small part too, but ultimately we’re looking for the best sport blogs, so we’ll be checking out the blog awards scene too.
