Football (soccer) represents a passion of masses; however, tennis, basketball, rugby and car racing, among others, also have the power of attracting huge crowds when argentine sportmen take part.
When events take place during labor, the whole city usually gathers in bars to witness them.
When it comes to soccer, specialized media is abundant: journals, magazines, and several TV and radio programmes. The other sports have their own place as well, where the press is constantly updating the facts. There is a cable TV channel called “TyC” (“Torneos y Competencias”: tournaments and competitions), which is completely dedicated to national sports. The best football matches of the day and the most important events are broadcast live through pay-per-view. Open channels broadcast them recorded.
