Unfortunately, hockey ranks far behind quite a number of sports in Romania. This goes for overall popularity, hence both attendance and number of players.

If we also count individual sports, then artistic gymnastics, tennis and boxing would all be in front.

Should we add team sports, then sports such as football, handball, waterpolo, rugby and even basketball and volleyball (which aren't huge in Romania) would rank ahead of hockey in my opinion.

As someone mentionned earlier, the sport is more popular within the Hungarian minority and ethnic Hungarians have formed the core of the national team for the past few years at least.
