Chapter 11: If you want to play sport professionally, which sport should you choose?
This study uses statistical techniques to compare the competitiveness of different sports with the number of opportunities there are to become a professional sportsman or sportswoman. It uses these results to rank various team and individual sports in terms of the prospects they offer players or competitors to earn a living from their sport. Comparisons are made between the team sports of Australian football, baseball, cricket, football (soccer), rugby league and rugby union and the individual sports of athletics (track and field), golf and tennis.
