Sports in Spain

Spanish people love sport. In every region of Spain there is a fashion for a different kind of sport. Therefore, it is not possible to determine what exactly is their only major national sport. Just as many heads, as many ideas for entertainment.

FOOTBALL

The country has two big football teams with fans all over the world, namely FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. In Spain, fans are also divided. In Spain, it is better not to offend any football team while talking, and it is best not to talk about football at all with a real Spaniard. They are also very spontaneous. All fans are really connected to each other and they support their favourite team all the time. When there is a match you can see a lot of people in the bars or restaurants, they are eating tapas and drinkingbeer or tinto.

For those who don’t know what corrida is, we have a simple explanation. Corrida consists in Torreador's fight with a bull. The grand finale of Corrida is the killing a bull by Torreador, for thatthis sport is too drastic for some people.

Tennis, or running with a pallet on the court behind a small yellow ball, is also a sport loved by many Spaniards. Spain also has many talented athletes in this area. The best known are: Rafael Nadal (considered the world's best tennis player) and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario (Federation Cup record holder). It can be really popular in some of regions but some of them are not interested in this kind of sport.
