There are many different types of sports that appeal to a vast array of unique individuals. Some of these sports are more intense and extreme, while others are more laid back. Through these differences, diverse types of crowds are drawn to sports in general. Each sport falls under one of two categories: a team sport or an individual sport. Clearly, team sports are going to attract more rowdy crowds that are there for the loud, team building element that generally revolves around the sports within this category. Whereas sports such as golf or tennis tend to exhibit a more low-key atmosphere.
The main difference that lies in team sports compared to individual sports is the most obvious, one utilizes a group of players that comprise the team, while the other revolves around a single athlete. Generally, team sports tends to exhibit more of the high intensity type of elements due to the vast array of cohesive strategy that is required for the game to function well with each players skill-set. Individual sports tend to exhibit one athlete performing against other single man teams to accomplish a common goal. While in fact individual sports can be highly intensive, they tend to attract less rowdy groups of people who are looking for a slightly different experience and atmosphere than team sporting events portray. In all, each category is worthy of spectating, and can be extremely exciting in its own right. However, typically, specific personality types flock to one category dominantly over the other.
