In addition to stellar teams, Seattle’s sports venues themselves offer ample amenities to enhance the game-day experience, from local food favorites to scenic views and sustainable practices. Visiting during the off season? Don’t throw in the towel! Behind-the-scenes tours are offered throughout the year at some of the most well-known Seattle sports venues, including T-Mobile Park, Climate Pledge Arena, and Lumen Field.

Seattle Sports Venues: Where to Watch Sports in Seattle

If you’re ready to follow your team on the road this year, Seattle is a fantastic place to catch an away game. Here’s what to know about visiting Seattle’s sports venues.

Baseball: T-Mobile Park

Home of the Mariners

Baseball fans can catch a Mariners game complete with sweeping views of the downtown Seattle skyline. Time your visit for an evening game and enjoy breathtaking sunsets over Puget Sound. T-Mobile Park is perfect for rainy-day games thanks to its retractable roof, which is designed to cover — but not completely enclose — the ballpark, thus preserving its open-air environment.

Park Tours: Whether you’re looking for early access to the park on game day or want a more in-depth behind-the-scenes experience, T-Mobile Park has a guided tour for you.  

Football and Soccer: Lumen Field

Home of the Seahawks, Sounders FC, and OL Reign

Similar to T-Mobile Park, Lumen Field boasts stunning views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, and downtown Seattle. While hotdogs are always a game-day favorite, foodies will find plenty to love thanks to Lumen Field’s culinary program. The stadium highlights local flavors and restaurants and features rotating markets where the food lineup changes frequently, from poke bowls and tacos to BBQ.

Stadium Tours: Football and soccer fanatics can get a behind-the-scenes look at the stadium during a guided tour. Tours are offered year-round and include the field, the visiting locker room, the 12 flag deck, the press conference room, and more.

Hockey and Basketball: Climate Pledge Arena

Home of the Storm and the Kraken

Located in the Seattle City Center, Climate Pledge Arena is Seattle’s newest pro-sports and entertainment venue. The arena, which bills itself as the most sustainable arena in the world, is home to the 4-time WNBA Champion Seattle Storm and the city’s first NHL team, the Kraken. The arena opened in October 2021 and places a strong emphasis on sustainability. These efforts can be seen throughout the stadium in the form of water bottle filling stations, solar panels, and the “Rain to Rink” system, which captures rainwater and turns it into ice for the hockey rink.

Arena Tours: Get an up-close look at this innovative arena with a guided tour. Game-day tours provide advance entry to the arena, while all-access tours let you go beyond the stands and visit areas usually closed to the public.  

Rugby: Starfire Sports

Home of the Seawolves

Located on the banks of the Green River in Tukwila in Seattle Southside, Starfire Sports’ smaller size means a more intimate game-watching experience. Join passionate locals and enjoy shorter lines and easy parking at this sports complex.

Seattle Sports Bars

Can’t make it to a game but still want in on the action? Seattle has its fair share of great sports bars complete with multiple TVs and plenty of beers on tap. Right outside T-Mobile Park and a short walk from Lumen Field is The Press Box. Enjoy local beers on tap and tons of seating.

Downtown Seattle and the surrounding neighborhoods also have their fair share of pubs and sports bars. Close to Climate Pledge Arena, Atlas Sports & Spirits boasts an extensive menu of wings, sliders, small bites, and more. In Ballard, Rough & Tumble focuses on women’s sports and offers 18 screens and boozy brunch, making it the perfect destination for morning games.  

Other Nearby Sports Venues

In Kent, 10 miles southeast of Sea-Tac Airport, you’ll find even more hockey. There, the Seattle Thunderbirds face off during Western Hockey League games at ShoWare Center. Or you can join the fan base of the Thunderbirds’ in-state rivals, the Everett Silvertips, who take to the rink at the Angel of the Winds Arena, about 30 miles north of Seattle. Either way, it’s always game on in Puget Sound.
