Sport in Nhoor


Nhoor's most popular sports are ice hockey and rugby. Football tends to be popular when Nhoor is qualified to play in an international competition, but as the Nhoor national football team isn't very good, this doesn't happen too often. Other popular sports are sailing, triathlon, horse sports, road cycling, handball, and bandy.


Cricket

Nhoor is a cricket nation. The national Men's Cricket Team is called the Blue Eagles (Ƨe̦ne pw Rhemha).

Participation in international competitions

  • Cricket Isles Cup 2019 (second half of 2019).
    With 3 wins and 4 losses in Group A (Group Stage), Nhoor didn't make it to the Quarter Finals. Coach was Ganhod Līrda, who was dismissed after this poor performance.

Ice hockey

Ice hockey is the most popular professional sport in Nhoor. Within Nhoor, there are three leagues between which a semi-automatic system of promotion and relegation is in place. The highest authority overseeing ice hockey in Nhoor is the Nhoor Ice Hockey Association (Nhōra pw Cwstorhanana qo Gwr pw Hacīqo, NCGH).

The three leagues are:

  • Silver League (Rea̦dus pw Suhemhast)

  • First League (E̦ch pw Suhemhast)

  • Second League (Cwso pw Suhemhast)

The Nhoor men's national ice hockey team, colloquially known as the Nhoor Griffons, is the ice hockey team representing Nhoor internationally. The national coach has been Urhed Bwsyta̦qh since 2016. The team plays in dark blue or red.

The Silver League (Rea̦dus pw Suhemhast) is the top professional ice hockey league of Nhoor. It was created in 1933 out of an amateur league. A system of semi-automatic promotion and relegation is in place between the Silver League and the First League: in order to be part of the Silver League, clubs must fulfill certain financial conditions apart from having ended in first or second place in the First League for two consecutive seasons. Since the 2013-2014 season, the Silver League has consisted of 14 teams.
