Sports and Athletics Report

Vital insights into Gen Z and Millennials' behavior, plans, and views—with major takeaways for brands.

Last year, YPulse’s special report on how sports fans were coping during COVID-19 found that 63% of 13-39-year-old sports fans agree: “Life without live sports is boring.” Clearly, many Gen Z and Millennials were missing sports. These generations were already creating challenges for sports brands pre-pandemic and with games and tournaments on pause, the future was uncertain. YPulse’s latest data on sports and athletics reveals the shifts that have occurred among young consumers and their sports watching behavior, and how they feel about the changes the sports industry has made due to COVID-19.
