Seattle Sports Fever!

Soak in the scores of scarf-toting, jersey-wearing fans, and it soon becomes clear: Seattle is a city that loves its sports.

To get in on the game-day action, head to CenturyLink Field, the oh-so-loud open-air stadium that’s home to the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks. From September through January, find thousands yelling themselves into a thunderous din. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, or if you can’t snag a seat, try any of the city’s sports bars.

Celebrate the Seattle Sounders FC, winners of the 2014 U.S. Open Cup and Supporters’ Shield, by joining supporters at CenturyLink Field to sing and chant for the likes of U.S. World Cup captain Clint Dempsey. The season runs from March through October, with tickets available through Ticketmaster.

Seattle Reign FC, the Sounders’ female counterparts, show why ladies rule with their domination of the National Women’s Soccer League season, starting in April. Cheer on Megan Rapinoe and other national team stars as they play at Memorial Stadium. Tickets are available on the team website.

The Rat City Rollergirls are another all-female Seattle powerhouse. Watch them battle in fierce bouts from January through August at KeyArena. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and at the arena box office.

Prefer hockey? Two Western Hockey League teams—the Seattle Thunderbirds and the Everett Silvertips—face off from September through March. Snag a seat for a Thunderbirds game at ShoWare Center in Kent, or join the cowbell-ringing crowds cheering on the Silvertips at XFINITY Arena at Everett. Both arenas are a 30-minute drive from Seattle and accessible by Sound Transit’s Sounder commuter train, which stops at Seattle’s King Street Station. Tickets are available through the team websites and arena box offices.

Come spring, NCAA March Madness arrives at KeyArena (March 20–22). Watch as top Division I college teams hoop it up during second- and third-round games. Tickets are available at the KeyArena box office and through Ticketmaster.

Spring also means bats start swinging again at Safeco Field, where the Seattle Mariners hit the diamond from April through October.
