National Sport[edit]

At the top of the page, it says that the National Sport is Yagli Gures but under Football it says that football is the national sport. Which is correct? -- WiiVolve 11:03, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Yagli gures is the traditional Turkish sport from the Ottoman times, and probably from the times of the Turkic migration. However, nowadays football has become the "national" sport in the sense that it is the most popular, both in numbers of players and viewers. I will try to word it better.

Rıdvan Dilmen if you go more east still you will see the pressure for football is notably decreases.. i am söz'de değil özde yurtsever. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.108.112.161 (talk) 14:18, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
