In the early part of the 20th century, sports in Britain were primarily based around a single sport: Cricket. The first ever cricket match was played between two teams in 18 77, and ever since then cricket has been a popular sport and even Olympic sport. In recent times, sports like football have become increasingly popular, particularly among urban youngsters. The first international football tournament took place in Twickenham, England in 1996, and the word global is fast starting to become associated with all international sports.

Nowadays, all over the world, almost all schools and colleges provide sports facilities for students. There are many sports clubs, athletic training centers and sports medicine departments in medical schools all over the world.
