Sporting Events in Columbus

Columbus makes it easy to get in the game.

With four professional sports teams and three 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), the Columbus Clippers—Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Guardians (MLB)— and the Columbus Fury (PVF). 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.
