The first sports league to be ranked in this Top 10 list is the NFL, with 4.2 million Hispanic followers. We know that the National Football League is among the most relevant sports leagues in the United States. However, among the Hispanic population, American football is not the most followed sport.

In the number 10 spot is Major League Baseball (MLB), the second league site in our ranking, with 2.3 million unique visits.

Hispanic netizens undoubtedly prefer to stay well-informed about sports news in general, as opposed to visiting specific sports and league sites for updates.
