The football market is growing in the United States. Let’s repeat that, the football market is growing in the United States. Growth at the collegiate level continues to outpace prior years. New collegiate football programs continue to pop up all over the U.S. and will do so for the foreseeable future, and high school participation continues in its rock-steady position as the overwhelming leader among high school sports.
High School Participation
According to the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), participation in 11-player boys high school football in 2015-2016 remained rock-solid at 1,083,308 participants (1). Football also remains the Number One participation sport at the high school level among both genders combined, by a wide margin.
According to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), participation in college football increased to 72,788 participants in 2015-2016, compared to 71,291 in the prior-year period (2). The number of NCAA football programs also increased from 664 to 670 during the same period (2). Football remains the Number One college participation sport with 28% more athletes than the Number Two sport (Track, Outdoor, Men & Women combined).
