How Popular is Speedway in Poland

Recommended Posts

And Stoch is an avid Liverpool fan and it was/is his dream to meet Kloppo.Not sure he has ever attended a speedway meeting though

Shouldn't mix 'most popular' with 'best attended',though.We know speedway is well attended in certain areas,but isn't really popular throughout the nation,so ask the question in certain areas and speedway wouldn't register too high.In others,it would 

Nice that Gollob gets a special mention:)

Whats the deal with ski jumping in Poland? Seems an odd choice for a popular sport. What am I missing?

They've had really good ones for the past few decades, World and Olympic champions like Adam Malysz and currently Kamil Stoch.

We also have had some really good ones over here, but just reading today that it's a possibility that no Finnish jumpers to the Olympics as they are no good ATM.

Same in Finland.I think a lot in Poland is down to Malysz.Maybe it was popular before,but he took it to another level,i'd guess.I think he is about the most popular sportsperson in the country over the past decade or more.Maybe Lewandowski comes close?

This comment/translation could be taken the wrong way!

If they did the same survey in Britain 80% would say they use to go but only 10% still do and their favourite current rider is Barry Briggs

Yes, you're quite right in your insight on Polish matters. Good for you.

Anyway, speedway is popular in the areas where there are speedway clubs. If you happened to be holidaying in Poland's North-East, there are thousands of lakes and pine woods, if you have asked local people about speedway, they probably would not know what you are talking about.
