Last I checked, and being one of them, NO we don't care about the SB. We have our OWN football! The CFL.

Yeah, the Grey Cup drew 8,000,000 viewers last year. That's 25% of the entire population. It peaked at 14,000,000 late in the 4th quarter. Super Bowl numbers in Canada are decent, but pale in comparison to the Grey Cup. It's not even close.

Don't see what's so funny. You're European, so you assume that its that way. But you don't know. TV numbers would be a better indication. Its a big event though, so people care about it to some degree. I guess a better question is, do they consider soccer their top or even one of their top 2 or 3 sports?

I had always believed that football/soccer was very popular in China.
Wikipedia also states that football is indeed China's most popular sport both to play and to watch as a spectator.

Scores of officials, managers and referees have been detained recently by police as authorities and the CFA try to clean up the sport, as accusations of match-fixing, gambling and crooked referees have swirled in China since it set up the professional leagues in the 1990s.

I agree, but in terms of numbers London too can't be beat - it has nearly twice as much as LA. By next July it will have a whopping 950,000 capacity, with further plans for 2 more 60,000+ seaters (and that's not including metro, which is studded with large stadia for the many premier football clubs).

Cheers.

I don't know about rest of Canada but at least here in Ontario (the most populace province), Superbowl is more eagerly anticipated than the Grey Cup. Here are the Canada wide ratings from last year:

Quote:
Toronto, ON (February 8, 2009) – SUPER BOWL XLIV is the most-watched SUPER BOWL ever with a record audience of 6.7 million viewers in Canada on CTV (6.025 million) and RDS (650,000) last night.
Preliminary overnight data from BBM Canada confirms that the New Orleans Saints' 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday is the second biggest audience for any broadcast on Canadian television since 1994.* Overall, an astonishing 16.64 million viewers – or one in two Canadians – tuned in to some or all of the broadcast on CTV or RDS.
Audience levels for SUPER BOWL XLIV on CTV and RDS peaked at 8 million viewers in the final minutes of the fourth quarter as the New Orleans Saints' Tracy Porter returned a Peyton Manning interception for a touchdown, sealing the Saints victory. The game attracted nearly two million viewers alone in Toronto/Hamilton, Canada's largest television market, and delivered an incredible 65 share among Men 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.
The national audience for SUPER BOWL XLIV is more than 52% higher than last year's NFL championship game that had an average audience of 4.3 million viewers.
The record audience comes as CTV and the NFL confirmed earlier today that they have extended their broadcast partnership for the next four years with the SUPER BOWL airing exclusively in Canada on CTV through to SUPER BOWL XLVIII.
“Last night's overwhelming audience is a testament to what a cultural phenomenon the Super Bowl is every year,” said Rick Brace, President, Revenue, Business Planning and Sports, CTV Inc. “What a way to end a tremendous season of NFL football on CTV. We can't wait to bring fans and advertisers all of the SUPER BOWL excitement again next year. ”
CTV's extended SUPER BOWL XLIV coverage also had impressive audiences with SUPER BOWL XLIV Kick-off Show attracting 3.7 million viewers. CTV's newest reality series, UNDERCOVER BOSS, premiered in the coveted post-SUPER BOWL timeslot to an average audience of 1.83 million viewers. Episode 2 airs next Sunday, February 14 at 9 p.m. ET on /A\.
SUPER BOWL XLIV caps off an incredibly successful season of NFL football on CTV –with the network setting new audience records throughout the regular season, playoffs and the SUPER BOWL.
Final SUPER BOWL XLIV audience numbers will be available in the coming weeks.

If you want to prove there are cities in such countries that can rival London, NYC, LA etc then go for it.

because people tend to think of only their own sports as important and fail to see the magnitude of things they don't understand.

It probably has something to do with the multitude of sports that are significantly popular, combined with the near exclusivity within many major markets which generally makes for bigger venues.

I'm not stating that as my case for any US city, just saying it probably sways some opinions.
