Ice Hockey, Basketball are played here but do not have that large a following - its mostly American/ Canadian players who aren't good enough to make the pro's in the States.

All of our sports are divided in club level and international level.

At club level the team represents a small part of a single country - Manchester United for example - any nationality can play for a club team.

In the England we have 92 club sides that are spread out over 4 divisions.

There is no seperation in terms of geography as in the US - AFC West, East etc etc

The best teams go in the top division and the worst in the bottom.

So thats about 18 teams to a division - each team plays the other home and away and is given points depending on the result.

At the end of the season the two best teams in a division swap places with the two worst teams in the division above.

If it is the top league then the best team are crowned Champions of the country.

International teams can only be represented by teams who were born in that country (or have parents from that country)

International teams - England, Brazil, Germany play major tournaments every 2 years against each other.

2006, 2010, 2014 - every 4 years there is a world cup for teams across the world

2004, 2008, 2012 - every 4 years there is a European Cup (for England, Germany) and African Cups etc for the other teams in the world.

England, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Bangladesh are the major cricket playing nations.

We play each other once at home and once away over 2 year cycles, and each game can last up to 5 days.

Cricket , and its tournaments are quite complicated to explain - we do have World Cups but each game only lasts one day.

Hope that explains a bit - any areas I haven't made clear - just ask.

Hey LITP,

Ok I don't get how the league standings work. So if you're the top two teams in the league you are automatically put in the bottom rankings of the league? How do the playoffs work and what title do they get then?

Also, how can one cricket match last so damn long? I've heard of a 15 inning baseball game but DAMN! Lol. Feel free to PM me about all this just in case some here on this board are gettin bored readin over my curiousity over other international sports.

Hey Hburg,

I dont think there is too much going on, on this thread at the moment, so ill stick my responses on here in case anyone else is interested.

There are 4 leagues. If you, for example, finish the season in 1st place of the 3rd best division then you start the next season in the 2nd best division (you move up one division - its called promotion).

If you were to finish in last place in the 2nd division you would be sent down to the 3rd division for the next season - effectively swapping places with the team I mentioned above.

Every division has its own Champion - obviously the Champion of the 1st division is the best team in the country.

Cricket is a weird one.

I'll point you towards this link - which hopefully explains it better than I could.

I'm not sure exactly where or when it happened, but somewhere along this thread it took a turn for the worst. It has finally arrived
