Best Sports Subreddits To Check Out In 2023

Do you like sports? Whether you’re into baseball, basketball or Formula 1, Reddit is a brilliant place to get all the latest news. Here’s the best sports subreddits to check out in 2023…


Most sports fans I know tend to hang out on Twitter, and that’s fine. Twitter is decent enough for accessing the latest sports news. But in my experience, it pales in comparison to Reddit.

I’m a huge F1 fan and have been an active member of r/formula1 for years now. I get nearly all my F1-related news from this subreddit and, thanks to its extremely active community, I’ve learnt a lot about the sport, its history, and what’s going on behind the scenes – you simply do not get this on Twitter.

Reddit is more community-based than Twitter and this, in my opinion, makes it a brilliant place for sports fans. You can argue, debate, and discuss all the latest news with people that are just as crazy about the subject as you are.

This applies to F1, but also to NBA, baseball, football, soccer, and any other sport you can think of…

So, if you’re not using reddit to follow the latest developments in the world of sports, here’s a quick overview of the best sports subreddits right now.
