Please help me identify the font used in the words "sharks" and "sports".
Thank you very much.

here's the image...
Most likely a custom design for this 'sports gaming' entity. I've never seen a font where the upper left corners of the P and R are so completely different.
Actually some fonts inspired by Cyrillic have that feature (although I highly doubt that's the case here).
It looks like a tyro mash-up to me. The /A and /R are pure Peignot, and—Cyrillic influence doubtful—the word SPORTS is just plain clumsy…
SHARKS is entirely abused, lowercase Peignot Bold.
A slightly backslanted Concelian should do the job for "SPORTS".
@Ryuk - nice find - it's very close and is probably also artificially boldened and with some of the corners/curves slightly modified.
