List: Top Ten Most Inspiring Sports UK Population Would Like To Watch

Date: December 2005

Source: Survey by Grant's Scotch Whisky and the Sports Journalists Association

Base: Nearly 2,000 members of the UK public were able to choose from 50 sports events selected by a panel.

Notes: Both men and women selected the Football World Cup Final as their number one choice. The opening ceremony at the 2012 Olympics in London came 6th in the poll, but it has been excluded here because your editor does not consider it a sports event. No sporting activity occurs and it's just an excuse for a big firework display and a party, which is no bad thing but has no place in a sports poll. These are UK voters so there is a UK bias to the events listed.
