The countries that show such pride are typically the stronger teams, and often those with long histories in the sport. Canada and the northern European countries are normally quite fierce in competition ice hockey, where the central European, south/middle Asian and Australasian countries are very supportive of their teams in field hockey.

It is believed hockey possibly started in Russia. Otherwise, there are no other major sports that came from Russia.

North America has what is referred to the "Big 4" sport leagues. This refers to the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, and the National Hockey League. There is also other somewhat big leagues including Major League Soccer, the Canadian Football League, and to a lesser extent the National Lacrosse League.
