Sports in New York Overview

New York sports fans are among the most dedicated and passionate fans in the world. The city breathes sports and home team pride is worn on hats, jackets, and t-shirts all over the city.

Sports in NYC are played nearly every day of the year, and whether it’s Yankees and Mets baseball, Knicks basketball, Jets and Giants football, Rangers and Islanders hockey, Red Bulls soccer, or even the annual U.S. Open tennis tournament, there’s always a game on and the sports bars remain packed.

The mecca of sports in the city, however, is unquestionably Madison Square Garden, where 20,000 fans pack in to watch hockey, college or pro basketball, and boxing throughout the year.

In addition to all the major teams and competitive sports, the New York Marathon is held every year and is also one of five World Marathon Majors around the globe where more than 40,000 runners race through all five boroughs of New York.
