Football Matches is or Are my hobby?


New Member
Hello Guys

I want to ask a question pls,

Should I say "Football Matches is my hobby"? or "Football Matches are my hobby"?

I know that it will be better if I say "Watching football matches is my hobby" but I am just giving an example.

Plural (is/are) Singular?

    You could probably avoid the whole problem by saying "Football is my hobby", Madosaied. If you must use "football matches", then you should use "are my hobby": Football matches are my hobby. If you want to use "Watching football matches is my hobby", that is also fine.

    Welcome to the forum. :)

    I agree with the two respondants gramatically. However, the sentence does not sound idiomatic to me. I would say I enjoy football matches, using the active rather than the passive.
