New England Patriots, who have won the Superbowl 4 times.

National Football League (NFL)

From the stars coming out for the Superbowl to making their way to Wembley Stadium, the NFL is huge. Artists such as Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Katy Perry and Madonna have rocked stadiums for the biggest show of the year’s Halftime performances, which has put the sport on a huge global level.

TEAMS AVAILABLE: Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears, New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks

Ten Superbowl wins between the five teams, with the New England Patriots taking the Vince Lombardi trophy home four times, the most of any of these lot. Oakland Raiders have three themselves, with Chicago Bears, New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks all with one apiece. Patriots are the most recent winners having taken the crown in 2014, with Seahawks’ title the year before.

Possibly one of the most recognised brands in the world, the New York Yankees have dominated Major League Baseball over the years.

Major League Baseball (MLB)

For over 100 years, Baseball’s top league holds the longest running series of the three sports featured here – and also includes one team from Canada!

TEAMS AVAILABLE: New York Yankees, LA Dodgers

One of America’s most recognisable sports teams are the New York Yankees – by some considerable margin the most successful team in MLB history, having won a massive 27 World Series! Despite not winning the series since 2009, the nearest team to their record – the St. Louis Cardinals – have only 11 titles to their name, meaning the earliest they could overtake the Yankees is the year 2032!

The LA Dodgers meanwhile have a much more moderate six World Series wins to their name, but they haven’t won it since 1988, almost 30 years ago. Originally formed in Brooklyn, New York, the team loves to Los Angeles in 1958.

The Los Angeles Kings, who have won the Stanley Cup for two of the past four seasons.

National Hockey League (NHL)

Despite being called a “National” league when originally formed in Canada, the NHL has actually been bi-national for almost a century, when the first American team joined in 1924. It’s now predominantly American – with 23 sides compared to the 7 from Canada. Teams compete for the Stanley Cup, the oldest professional sports title in North America.

TEAMS AVAILABLE: LA Kings

Despite having only two Stanley Cup wins compared to Montreal Canadiens‘ 24, the Los Angeles Kings have been on recent form – their two cups coming in the last four seasons. Their only other appearance came in 1993, to two out of three ain’t a bad strike rate at all.
