Sports in Philadelphia

Philadelphia fans have known joy and heartache, anger and exultation in their 100-plus years of living with professional sports teams.

Notably, Philadelphia is one of just a few cities with a professional franchise in five major league sports.

Most of Philadelphia’s pro teams play a few miles south of Center City, either at the Wells Fargo Center (76ers basketball and Flyers ice hockey), Lincoln Financial Field (Eagles football) or Citizens Bank Park (Phillies baseball). The Philadelphia Union soccer team plays at the Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia.

The city also hosts top-tier regattas (the Dad Vail Regatta and the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta), the world's oldest relay meet (the Penn Relays), numerous marathons and running events (the Philadelphia Marathon, the Broad Street Run) and much more.
