### Parameters

All parameters are optional.

name
The name of the sport; this is usually the same as the name of the article, unless it has been disambiguated. E.g., Association football. Capitalization should match article title. If this attribute is omitted, the name will be inferred from the page title.
image
the filename of an image to use (without "Image:" or "File:" prefix), e.g. football iu 1996.jpg
alt
Alt text for the image. This is read out by screen readers for the visually impaired, and is displayed in place of the image when images are switched off. The caption text will immediately follow the alt text, so the two should be considered together in creating the alternative text for an image.
imagesize
the width in pixels for the image, e.g. 275px Larger than 300 is not recommended. If this attribute is omitted, the image will default to 125px width.
caption
A caption for the image, e.g. An attacking player's function is to kick the ball past the opposing goalkeeper to score a goal. Captions should complement the image by bringing out details or issues that are not visually obvious. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Captions.
union
The highest officiating body associated with the sport, e.g. FIFA for association football.
nickname
One or more (comma-separated) nicknames of the sport. Non-English names should not be put here, unless they are frequent in English. E.g., Football, soccer, futbol<!-- Commonly used in the USA to differentiate from American football (known as football) -->, footy/footie, "the beautiful game". Capitalize only the first nickname (unless one or more other ones are proper names).
first
Year (or century, if year unknown) and location the game was first played in some recognizable form. For very specific modern games (e.g. snooker plus), use as specific a date as possible, for that particular game not any ancestral forms. For a broader sense of "sport", more generality may be used (e.g. for cue sports). Do not link these dates. Examples: 1942, [[Philadelphia, Pennsylvania|Philadelphia]] or 1863, England, with roots in prehistory or 15th century Europe. For location, it is unnecessary to link countries or general regions unless obscure.
firstlabel
Alternate label text for the "first" parameter, for cases where "First played" in not appropriate, e.g. Auto racing.
region
Geographic area(s) the sport is present. Use the largest geographic area(s) that apply. If, for example, If the sport has presence in every province in Canada, list Canada, do not list each province. Values can be narrow (e.g. a city), sub-national ("Western and northern China", "Texas and Louisiana"), multi-national in several ways ("Latvia and Estonia", "pan-European", "Latin America, Spain and the Philippines", etc.), and "Worldwide" is used for global sports
registered
How many players have registered to participate with this sport's affiliated governing bodies?
clubs
How many clubs have registered with this sport's affiliated governing bodies?
contact
Is this a contact sport? Typical values are No or Yes, though something more specific could be put here (e.g. With feet only, etc.)
team
Size of teams. Various values are possible, such as: No teams, single competitors, or 11 per side, single competitors, doubles, or teams of up to 5, etc.
mgender
Is this a mixed-gender sport? Various answers can be used here: No, Yes, Yes, but usually in separate leagues/divisions, etc.
type a.k.a. category
Whether it is an indoor or outdoor game, and any other categorizations that may be useful. Examples: Outdoor or indoor, field, or Indoor, rink, or Indoor, table, or Indoor or outdoor, aquatic. Links can be used. More specific categorization can be used: Outdoor, aquatic, [[motor sport]]
equipment
Links to separate articles on key items of equipment used in the game, if any such articles exist. E.g., [[Billiard ball]]s, [[billiard table]], [[cue stick]], or [[Football (ball)|Football]].
venue
Link to separate article on type(s) of venue that the game is played in, if any such articles exist. E.g., [[Association football pitch|Football pitch]], or [[Billiard hall]] or home [[billiard room]].
glossary
Link to separate article on glossary, if any such articles exist. E.g., [[Glossary of cricket terms]].
olympic
No or year of acceptance into the Olympic Games and link to appropriate article (e.g. [[1904 Summer Olympics|1904]], if any. Other values can be used, e.g. 1900; removed from program in 2004, or Proposed for [[2016 Summer Olympics|2016]]. Omit this field entirely when irrelevant (e.g. medieval games that are now extinct).
paralympic
No or year of acceptance into the Paralympic Games and link to appropriate article (e.g. [[1984 Summer Paralympics|1984]], if any. Other values can be used, e.g. 2000; removed from program in 2004, or Proposed for [[2016 Summer Paralympics|2016]]. Omit this field entirely when irrelevant (e.g. medieval games that are now extinct).
obsolete
Is this game obsolete? Any value, such as y or yes will cause this field to display as "Yes". Leave this field empty or omit it entirely if not obsolete; do not use no or n (that will not work). A game is obsolete if it has zero or near-zero living players. Just because a folk game has been "replaced" by a standardized game with a national governing body does not necessarily mean that it is obsolete (cf. stickball, which evolved into baseball but is still played).
