2011 Colombian National Men's Soccer Team!

The most popular and cherished of the sports in Colombia is fĂștbol or soccer. Their national team has been to the Fifa Cup Finals several times. Part of the entertainment comes from the rivalries between the three major city's soccer teams in Colombia. This sport undoubtedly holds a special place in the hearts of the people and the culture of Colombia!


Basketball and baseball are working their way up the popularity scale. They bring a substantial crowd of fans to the games and are becoming more widespread in Colombia slowly but surely.

Golf, skiing, and tennis are being enjoyed by a noticeably smaller number of people in Colombia.


Colombians are starting to welcome motor racing at a very fast pace, but bicycle racing is becoming extremely popular. Every year Colombia holds a few bicycle road races where competitors must bike about 1200 miles over the course of 12 days to finish the race.
