72 Sports and Gaming Niche Ideas to try

The sports industry has grown beyond golf, soccer and athletics. If you are a fitness enthusiast, then you may find this industry appealing to you.

The gaming industry is growing by the year as more people get involved with pro e-sports and pop culture.

These niches are on-demand and profitable but the competition is intense so make sure that you have something unique to offer to your audience.

Creating content with high value to the reader should be your ultimate goal and not just fluff. The audience will tell you what they want if you tune into them.
