The Best Team Sports, Ranked

Updated April 9, 2020 10.5k votes 1.5k voters 23.0k views27 items

List RulesThere's no "I" in team, so no individual sports. It's a team effort, here!

Being a part of a team can be one of the most rewarding things a person can do. The camaraderie, the character building, and of course, the teamwork, are just some of the positives to being a part of a team. In sports, teams have to work together to win the game – there's no single person who can carry the rest of the team themselves. And there's nothing like watching a team come together for a big victory. 

What are your favorite team sports? Are they classic sports like football and baseball, or something a little more offbeat like rowing or curling? It's up to you to decide. Vote up all of your favorite team sports, and add any that aren't already listed here.
