In team sports, yes. Behind soccer by a large margin, but I would put it equal to handball and basketball. Big problem in Germany is that games are only shown on Pay-TV and there is no bigger coverage in any of the major networks in Germany. Only the olympics are shown on the majors. Hockey has a solid group of fans but outside cities with a team, the interest is not very big.
