[Answered]  Should Beyblade be a Sport?

Ok, so Beyblade is really fun, and even can give you a little exercise a little bit, but should it be a sport? I personally think so, but I'm wondering what you guys think!
Yes beyblade has lots of fans , not as much as soccer,etc but there's a another sport called disc golf and it's not as popular so why can't beyblade be the same thing?
I visited many schools but there was only one which was also fun. I couldnt stand being at the school yard and watching everyone just doing almost nothing but playing with their phones. And then when I was at my second school we Played beyblade during the breaks and it was such a fun, just like playing tennis or football, Sports you know. And it's especially hard work for your mind and your hands. So I dont see any reason why beyblade shouldnt Be a sport
Exactly, it being people together just like many other sports
What do you mean by "should it"?
If it's a sport then it's a sport. If it's not then it's not.
What more do you want it to be?
It will never be featured it the olympics or something like that because you can pay for advantage in this game. And if everyone used the same standard issue Beyblade, then all the fun and most of the strategy of this game would be lost.
Regular Beyblade tournaments are still being held on this planet. And I think that is all we can really ask for.
When I was at DraconicArt 's house for new years celebration we played Beyblade for at least 5 hours a day. I've lost 4 pounds that weekend. So if chess is considered a sport why shouldn't Beigoma/Beyblade be a sport, too? I know that Beyblade is a "toy" but isn't a ball a toy, too?
Absolutely, normally when I get in to a heated battle (no pun intended) I tend to sweat like a lot, so having it exhaust and entertain you makes it the perfect sport for those of anime fans. This would encourage a lot of people to try out beyblade, and since it is not easy unless they seriously work at they won't pass. In short yes it would a fantastic development to the world of sports.

I know you mean Beyblade should be Considered a sport. And I think It should be too, We love Beyblade as much as the guy who loves soccer watches the whole tournament in 1 go, we do it too.

BTW, superpete21 One word quote is against the rules.
Yes, it should be considered as a sport. In this world it maybe is considered as a kids toy but as many of you have said a 'ball' is also a toy after all.. But for all of us here, I am sure it's more than just a spinning top. Beyblade  teaches us LIFE in a whole different way. It teaches us that at the end of the day you win or lose it does not matter. The fact that you did your best,are willing to come back better next time and are proud of what you did is all that matters. So yes, it should be considered as a sport.
I just don't understand it when you guys say "It should be considered a sport"
What changes when the world accepts Beyblade as a sport? If you consider it a sport, then go ahead and consider it a sport.
Also, the arguement that a ball is also a toy is stupid. Because in ball sports people don't battle each other using their balls. And it's not possible to buy better balls to gain advantage. There is also no mold differences in the balls unless the rules change.
As I said: There ALREADY IS something called Beyblade competition in this planet. What more do you want?

Like a paid sponsorship for being a "pro" blader and having a pro blading league supported by both TakaraTomy & Hasbro with similar format to the WBO that would be broadcast across online streaming platforms for paid revenue. Like getting paid for blading is my idea of making it a real sport. Like imagine a mtn.dew sponsored blader team or something like that lol, and there would be set conferences and official pro tournament circuits. (Basically everything they do for professional gamers can be done for a professional blader)

In japan they are pretty close to that with teams like Top Gun and others.
Trust me this has been discussed many time, I personally regard it as a sport

Well you can't buy a better ball, but if you were an Olympic track runner, would the right shoes give you an unfair advantage? No, it's fair because you bought those shoes and won with them! I'd hate to have an olympics littered with Sr0bds, but money can buy you an advantage in most Olympic sports.
Yes definitely but wouldn’t we need anime-size Stadiums or not
I think this would be a good idea and everyone could have their own unique bey (in the different versions. Dual layer, god layer, etc.) So variety wouldn't be an issue.
Absolutely it should be a sport! While games such as basket ball and rugby have hands in use, there is no proper "sport" that focusses on the hands as much as beyblades other than cricket, and not only that, beyblades also focus on the mind and even though we don't know it, it improves our thinking mathematically. For instance, don't you try better combinations, thinking about weight height and stability? dont we try to maximise our beys efficiency by swapping parts? When we launch we automatically calculate speed, power, distance and time. And we do this in a split second! Some people say that anybody can play beyblade. But then in that  case, cant anybody play cricket? So if cricket is considered a international sport, taken seriously by everyone, why shouldnt beyblade be? Now someone said we already have tournaments, what else do we need? Well, do you know the average amount of money Indian cricketers earn a year? 1 million! Thats more than any blader makes out of selling his beys. Like someone above said, imagine if a company sponsored a team of bladers? We would have actual arenas where people would come and cheer, just like in the anime. Wouldnt so many more people have jobs? Wouldnt we all like to have it as a sport in our schools? and actually get sports marks, for how many bey points we had? I think this should be an actual, international sport.
It all depends on the persons perception and idea of what it is. No matter what it is, sport or not, it will always be held in high regards for any number of people.
I think that it depends if beyblade is a hobby or passion for the blader
Okay now we just need to figure out how to actually make it recognized and eventually get into the Olympics haha
Basically what's said in this thread.

Whether you care about it being recognized as a sport or not, the best thing for us to do for Beyblade is to help grow the community. Many of us are in isolation or at least without tournaments in our area. Help get tournaments going where there are none and support those that do exist (and the people who make them a reality). Be patient and help new people who are interested learn and get started.

Each of us can play a part. We can do it together.

Things don't get made into sports if they're not popular enough. I don't care about it being considered a sport, but I think the community needs help building up to be good for all the people who are currently interested and those who might be interested. Whatever comes from its growth will be, whatever it is, but effort and action is needed all the same.
