Residents of Uzbekistan are frank and amicable people. Therefore, in many ways, hockey in this country is rather competition, rivalry, but not war or battle.
The militaristic attitude, traditional for many hockey powers, is nothing to do with the clearly pronounced conflict-free national country’s identity, the benevolent mood and outlook of its inhabitants.
Another important feature of the people of Uzbekistan — a potential loyal target audience of hockey matches — is a very high level of patriotism. Uzbeks are proud of their country and pay great attention to national culture and traditions, elements of which find their place in their everyday lives.
