Seattle Sports Travel Tips

Seattle is for Sports Fans

by Christina

As an avid Seattle sports fan, I promise you'll enjoy seeing any of the teams you can cheer on in the Seattle area. While the Seattle area has a lot going for it in the way of culture, food and outdoor activities, the sports alone are enough reason to vacation there. 

Seattle's pro football stadium CenturyLink  Field (Qwest Field)

University of Washington Huskies

There is no other football stadium that compares to Husky Stadium. The setting is great: East of the stadium is Lake Washington and some boat side tailgating with a view of the Cascade mountains. To the west, the Olympic mountain range.  The stadium just underwent a $280 million renovation, and even if you weren’t a Husky fan before, you just might convert once you’ve experienced Husky football at it’s best. Not football season? You can of course catch Husky sports all year round, from basketball at Hec Ed Pavillion to track and field or baseball. Just be sure to sport your purple and gold to live like a local!

Seattle Seahawks NFL Football

Seattle is the proud home of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks play at Century Link Field to one of the loudest hometown fans in the nation. Under head coach Pete Carroll and leadership of young quarterback, Russell Wilson the Seahawks have become quite an exciting team to follow. If you're lucky enough to have tickets to the game, enjoy, but if not, you can still join the faithful Seattle football fans in local sports bars and have a ton of fun in this sports-loving town.

Seattle Sounders FC - Professional Soccer

Futbol more your thing than football? Also making Century Link Field their home turf, this MLS team is now even more exciting to watch with former Tottenham Hotspur, Clint Dempsey calling the team home. With a large and loyal fan base, pro soccer in Seattle is so much fun to watch with the crazy, devoted fans here cheering on their favorite team.

Seattle Mariners MLB

The beautiful Safeco Field, just down the road from Century Link Field, may, sadly, be the most exciting thing about the team as of late. Despite a less than stellar record, Safeco Field is the ultimate stadium to catch a ball game. From it’s retractable roof (it might rain, after all), to it’s delectable delights,you can still come out a winner after catching a baseball game at this scenic stadium, even if the Mariners lose. And maybe they'll win!

The only thing missing for sports fans in Seattle is an NBA team since the Seattle Supersonics became the Oklahoma Thunder in 2008. Let’s hope Seattle gets another NBA team soon for even more sports excitement and more reasons to visit Seattle for a sports trip!
