On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the people of Münster like to visit the market, which takes place from 7.30 to 14.30 on the Cathedral Square. The traditional pasta party is held every first Saturday of the month from 11 am to 2 pm and on Sundays from 12 pm to 3 pm. Every year in June, the Münster Triathlon attracts several thousand people and offers a number of events, such as a cycle race, a cycle race and a triathlon race. In the city centre, a K & K Indoor Cup with various activities for children and young people is also organised by the Münsteraner Reitverein.
It is no wonder that Münster is widely known as the bicycle capital of Germany and that the people of Münster usually get around by bicycle.
Thus, sporting success fosters general nationalism and leads to sport - the associated national pride. In West Germany at least, civic, scientific, and national pride also correlate positively with general national pride. However, the impact in these areas is not as strong as in sport and the impact of sport on general nationality can only be assessed and compared with other areas of society, so that specific contributions of sport can be recorded.
In particular, we will consciously emphasise the role of sport - the national pride that it brings to the development of national identity, and in particular the impact of sport on nationalism and national self-esteem.
Given that Germany offers a unique opportunity to study sport - centered identity politics - it is of the utmost interest to examine the role of sport in the development of national identity and self-esteem. Therefore, we will analyse the influence of sport on national pride in Germany and the relationship between sport and nationalism. It seems highly plausible that the sporting national pride in Germany seems to be structured differently than in the Federal Republic of Germany, given the high level of sporting success and nationalism. As sport is presented as a strongly gender-specific sphere, it should come as no surprise that men also take more pride in Germany's sporting achievements. Given the high proportion of male athletes and athletes of different nationalities and ethnicities, sport seems to be an important part of the cultural identity of Germany and the country itself.
But that is not true, and the pride in sporting achievement is a widespread phenomenon. As a result, better-educated East Germans and their West German counterparts are more inclined to sports nationalism than their West German counterparts.
So, on the basis of that data, we locate sport - the associated national pride on a relative level - and we have six other possible sources of pride that we can compare. The significance of sport as the domain of national pride varies, but it is much more important in East Germany than in West Germany, where about one in two East Germans chooses sport as the domain of national pride. In West Germany, where national pride seems to be more important in the economic, scientific and civic fields, sport is less important. Respondents ranked athletes "performance among the top three, and only about half of those who considered themselves" sporting nationalists "rated their country's sporting performance positively compared to the rest of the population.
In East Germany, by contrast, sporting nationalism is high on the list of national pride. The results show that it is much more important than sport in economic, scientific and social terms, but less so in sport.
Although sports nationalism is more common in East Germany among members of the parent generation, it has no such effect in West Germany. The fact that it is less educational and more evenly distributed across generations suggests a further socialization effect, as the national pride associated with sport increases with age. It should be noted, however, that cross-border national research supports the conclusion that Germans display a comparatively low level of national pride in terms of national identity and social status.
