Seattle sports fans unite!
Hello sports fans far and wide, near and far! I’m here to give you a rundown on the Seattle sports scene and to show you just how many teams we have for you to watch and enjoy! Whether you are visiting or a local WA Resident, our sports community is a tight knit one and if there’s one thing Seattle has, it is pride in our sports.
Why would a boat company be writing about sports do you ask? Well, not only do we love the city that we are based and created in, but we want you guys to have as much information as you can when planning upcoming trips, weekend plans, or just for pure knowledge.
To add to the fun and ease of planning, Argosy Cruises offers a “Game Day Discount” on our public sightseeing tours! Why not make the day a fun filled one by hopping on a cruise the day before, day of, or day after (yes, this discount applies all those days). Receive 12% OFF tickets to our Harbor or Locks Cruise on any home game day. To verify you’re attending the game, this offer is in-person only and all you have to do is show us your tickets when purchasing.
So what sports teams does this discount apply to? All of Seattle's professional teams! That is the:
Seahawks - Schedule
Our NFL team, go football! Although we did say goodbye to our QB, Russel Wilson, we still have our fan pride for being named the loudest fans in the league. Breaking the Gusiness World Record for loudest stadium, basically twice in one game reaching a final 136.6 decibels! The 2021 season has ended but keep an eye out for next season’s schedule release on May 12.
Mariners - Schedule
Baseball is back and opening day has already passed! The beauty of this sport is how long the season runs and how many games you can go to starting now all the way through October. Plenty of home games at the very pink T-Mobile Park with plenty swag being given out on certain days, garlic fries, and $10 seats. It also doesn’t hurt that we’ve won the past three games!
Storm - Schedule
Give it up for our Women’s NBA team! As they finished up their preseason, games start very soon and going all the way through the summer. Watch this amazing team at Climate Pledge Arena (close to AGC Marina, where our Locks Cruise starts) because tickets are on sale now! See Sue Bird, four time WNBA Champion, tear up the court.
Kraken - Schedule
New to the city but it feels like we’ve had this team for a lifetime! Welcoming our NHL team, the Seattle Kraken, who’s home game rink is Climate Pledge. With their first official season being this year, fans have surely embraced this new addition to the sports community. Considering how many days out of the year it is cold and icy, it wouldn't make sense to not have a hockey team.
Sounders - Schedule
Do we have any soccer fans? The Seattle Sounder is sure to give you a satisfying game! Taking place at Lumen field, you are sure to have a plethora of matches to choose from this month til October. Although they aren’t as often as Mariners games, make sure you make way to one and try to sit in the Emerald City Supporters section. It’s where all the high energy fans who love waving the teams flag and chanting go, and from personal experience, it was a great time.
OL Reign - Schedule
Can’t get enough of soccer? Then you’ll be happy to know there are plenty more games to attend! Seattle’s very own professional women’s soccer team! Founded in 2012, the team's home base was Tacoma until just recently where they announced their return back to playing in Seattle, right in Lumen Field. In a press conference about the move, CEO Bill Predmore couldn’t have phrased the reasoning of switching to Lumen field better than he did, “which was to have our world-class players playing in a world-class stadium."
So there you go! The rundown on all of Seattle’s professional sports teams and just how many options both locals and tourists have when deciding on sports team to watch. Who are you going to see?
