Sports Events in Columbus
Columbus makes it easy to get in the game.
With three professional sports teams and stadiums in the Arena District, you’re never far from the action. Along a half-mile stretch of Nationwide Boulevard, you’ll find the Columbus Blue Jackets (NHL), the Columbus Crew (MLS) and the Columbus Clippers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Guardians (MLB). Early for a game? Take advantage of the neighborhood’s DORA (Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area) and grab a drink from designated restaurants.
Columbus does college sports, too. The Ohio State Buckeyes’ 36 Division I sports bring impassioned crowds from around the state and the country to home games in the University District. Whether you’re a first-timer or a longtime fan, tailgates and games have something for everyone.
