Each time a city wins a sports championship, the local fans’ hearts swell with pride. With Slate’s comprehensive championship map, you can tell exactly how swollen they are.

You can select one of the tabs at the top to focus on one of the four sports, or you can drag the slider at the bottom of the map to zoom straight to a specific year. The trophy icons on the map indicate which cities held the four major titles during the year in question.
