Both were made as our national sports in 1994. Until then, ice hockey was our national sport.

The lore behind lacrosse being our national sport was borne out of a publicity campaign by a guy named Beers around confederation. He owned interests in the league and by making it popular he was bound to profit. It never was declared our national sport until 1994.
