If it’s summer that means one thing: the ball game, and the New York Yankees are the biggest club of them all, indeed one of the biggest sporting franchises on the planet. They have won more World Series than anybody else and a game at their Yankeee Stadium in the Bronx is a glimpse into the traditional American day out.
If you’re a New Yorker then the chances are you’re a fan of one baseball team, and while many follow the fortunes of the Yankees there’s also huge support for the New York Mets, who play at the modern Citi Field in Queens.
There’s divided loyalties in the NFL too! There are two New York franchises, the Giants in the NFL and the Jets in the AFL. Both play across the Hudson River at the magnificent 82,500 capacity MetLife Stadium and because there’s two teams, you’re guaranteed a home fixture every matchday through the autumn schedule.
New York has one of the most famous indoor sporting arenas too. Madison Square Garden is billed as the world’s busiest venue and that includes hosting major sports franchises: the basketball side New York Knicks, plus ice hockey outfit the New York Rangers.
MLS is rapidly gaining support in the States, with New York City and New York Red Bull representing the city. And every Autumn the eyes of the tennis world turn to Flushing Meadows for the US Open.
New York is a truly amazing city and the Manhattan skyline is famous throughout the world. You are guaranteed an excellent weekend break so let Nickes.Com take you there!
