Family-friendly guide to fall spectator sports around Seattle



Seattle University

Does your family love sports? If so, check out the many options for games to see around Seattle this fall. There's football, and soccer of course, but also an array of college sports and a couple of excellent major junior hockey teams.

Football

Seahawks

Century Link Field, 800 Occidental Ave S

If you’re a sports fan in America, then fall means football. And with the Seahawks, Seattle puts on a big, loud, exuberant football show. Consider having your family wear ear protection. You can read more about ways to watch it here.

 

University of Washington Huskies

3800 Montlake Blvd NE

Games at Husky Stadium come with all the pageantry college football brings: the coordinated fan cheering, the marching band and the mascots. And the football is good too. Consider ear protection. Leave your car at home. There’s a light-rail station right by the stadium.

 

Soccer

Sounders FC

Century Link Field, 800 Occidental Ave S
Starfire Sports, 14800 Starfire Way

Sounders crowds are fun to be part of.  They have earned a reputation for creating some of the most raucous home games in Major League Soccer. Between the brass band, the big supporters clubs with their flags and banners, and the stadium special effects, it's a party atmosphere, with nifty accessories. The Sounders kids club is free and includes events, select ticket and gear discounts, newsletters and oral hygiene advice (Delta Dental is the sponsor.)

 

University of Washington Huskies (men and women)

Husky Soccer Stadium

Husky Soccer Stadium, a soccer only facility on the east side of the UW campus, has an intimate feel. You can often hear what the players are yelling. A smaller version of the marching band attends, seated in the bleachers nearby. Concessions are basic.

 

Seattle University Redhawks (men and women)

Championship Field, 565 13th Ave

 

Seattle Pacific University Falcons (men and women)

Interbay Soccer Stadium, 3027 17th Ave W

 

Basketball

University of Washington Huskies (men and women)

Alaska Airlines Arena, 3870 Montlake Blvd NE

First rate NCAA division 1 college basketball in an arena full of 10,000 or so fans. Consider ear protection.

 

Seattle University Redhawks (men and women)

Redhawk Center, 550 14th Ave

Seattle’s other NCAA Division 1 teams play the bulk of their home games in the 1000 seat Redhawk Center this year (KeyArena often the site of past Redhawks men’s games, is closed for renovations) so if you get seats, they’ll be good ones.

 

Seattle Pacific University Falcons (Men and Women)

Royal Brougham Pavilion, 3414 3rd Ave W

 

Women's volleyball

University of Washington Huskies

Alaska Airlines Arena, 3870 Montlake Blvd NE

Junior Hockey

Seattle Thunderbirds

Accesso ShoWare Center, 625 W James St, Kent

 

Everett Silvertips

Angel of the Winds Arena, 2000 Hewitt Ave, Everett

 

The teams consist of young elite hockey players aged 16 to 21. While there is a sizeable minority of Americans and a few Europeans, most are from Western Canada. Junior hockey is known for spirited, furious play and exuberant fans.

At Seattle Thunderbirds home games you have the option of sitting in a no-alcohol area.
