Sports contribute as much to Boston's local culture (or what we call "culchah") as do our world-famous museums, concert halls, and universities.

You can experience the excitement at legendary Fenway Park when "Red Sox Nation" cheers on the home team . . . at the iconic sports bars surrounding TD Garden where a sea of fans wearing green or gold and black surrounds the big screens . . . at Gillette Stadium where fans boil whole lobsters, grill steaks, and chow down on huge pots of chili at tailgate parties before going to cheer the Patriots.

There's nothing else quite like Boston's sport culture - so experience it for yourself when you visit!

Here's a quick guide to our five major sports teams, our three major sports venues, current schedules, and how to get the best tickets at the right price.

Boston Red Sox

Boston Sports - Boston Red Sox Schedules, Tickets, Information
Boston Red Sox playing the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park

After winning the World Series in 2004, 2007, and again in 2013, the Boston Red Sox sell out almost every home game at Fenway Park. 

The 2004 World Series win came after a dry spell of 86 years, attributed to a rumored "Curse of the Bambino" after the team's management sold star player Babe ("The Bambino") Ruth to arch-rival New York Yankees during the off season. 

Here in Boston, Red Sox fans are collectively known as "Red Sox Nation" due to our loud and obsessive support of the team, winning or losing.

Built for the Boston Red Sox in 1912, Fenway Park is famous for its "Green Monster" wall.
