A persuasive speech is meant for persuading the audience to have a specific viewpoint. Unlike ordinary speech where the orator simply gives information on a subject; in a persuasive speech, the orator has a viewpoint (pro or against the subject) and tries to prove why it is right or wrong. Among the different speech topics today, sports is one of the most popular ones. This is because of the hype surrounding sports and the glamor and wealth linked to it. Secondly, we all have some information about sports and are at least aware of even the remotest of sports.
