It is fair to say that most Canadians consider ice hockey as their national sport. Those who love the discipline can visit 1xBet – best bet sites in Kenya offers great competitions that are played there.

Due to its popularity, there are plenty of ice hockey competitions in the country. One of them was the Canada Cup. It was born after an idea that appeared in Alan Eagleson’s mind, who was a businessman.

During most of the history of the sport there has been a huge split between amateurs and professionals. The best bet sites in Kenya are definitely the ones offered by 1xBet, and they feature tons of professional and amateur ice hockey competitions.

The idea of Alan Eagleson was to once and for all find the absolute best team in the world. For this reason, several national squads were invited, and the idea was that they participated with both amateurs and professionals.

Trying to solve another problem

In addition to the aforementioned split, there was another issue that specifically affected ice hockey in Canada. In the 1960s and 1970s, due to scheduling issues, the best Canadian players were not able to participate in the Olympics or other major worldwide competitions. It should be said that major football tournaments are also quite good, and they can be wagered at the 1xbet.co.ke/line/football website.

As such, Eagleson and other hockey fans wanted to create some kind of an ice hockey world cup. Their idea was that it could be celebrated at a time when the best players from all participating countries were available. Eventually, the Canada Cup was celebrated in 1976 for the first time. When other major ice hockey tournaments take place, make sure to wager on them by going to the 1xBet website.

Canada’s dominance

In total, five editions of the event were celebrated between 1976 and 1991. All of them were extremely popular. In general, the Canadian team was far superior to all the other participant squads, as they won four of the five editions. At any moment you can visit 1xbet.co.ke/live/ice-hockey – try live betting hockey now on the best national squads from all over the world.

The other teams who participated in the Canada Cup were:

  • the Soviet Union;
  • USA;
  • Sweden;
  • Czechoslovakia;
  • Finland;
  • and West Germany.

The Soviets were the squad who won the Canada Cup that the locals didn’t win, which happened in 1981.

After the last edition of the competition, which took place in 1991, the World Cup of Hockey came into existence. This championship was contested for the first time in 1996. Followers of this competition can visit 1xBet and try live hockey betting on it every time it is celebrated.
