If you have moved recently to Detroit, have recently gotten more into sports or have always lived in Detroit and have always enjoyed sports, you will likely want to know of the best ways to enjoy sports in Detroit. In this article, we will go through a variety of ways that you can enjoy your favourite sports in Detroit.
Of course, one of the best ways to experience sport is to be at the stadium to see the live performance. If you can manage to be there for a historical moment for your team, there is no greater feeling of joy, brotherhood and unity as you revel in your team’s glory.
The main Detroit sport teams are the Detroit Lions for the NFL, the Detroit Tigers for baseball, the Detroit Pistons for the NBA and finally the Detroit Red Wings for ice hockey. All of these teams have been established between 1894 and 1941 and have 23 titles with the Red Wings gaining almost half of these with eleven.
Ford Field is the Lions home with a sixty five thousand person capacity that can truly roar their team on. If you are more into baseball, then you should visit the Comerica Park and you may be lucky enough to catch a home run if you are seated in the right place. Both the Pistons and the Red Wings play at the Little Caesars Arena which can hold around twenty thousand fans, so you should familiarise yourself with this magical place as well, when Covid allows it again.
Although historically watching the game in the stadiums would be undisputed as the best way to watch games, television coverage has gotten much better recently to the point where for the average match, it may be better to watch on your TV. Of course, you do not get the atmosphere but what you do get is in depth analysis, coverage of most games, slow-mos and incredible angles.
For example, if you love the NFL, then you can buy the NFL game pass. For $140 or £107, you get all 256 NFL regular season games, either live or on demand, access to NFL Redzone which shows every single touchdown, original NFL content that includes historical programs, analysis shows and more. This is actually one of the best ways to watch sport in the world, being reasonably priced and providing top class content that is not limited to the games.
If you do not have access to a television or are just looking for a different way to watch sports, there is a third option which is legal online streaming. You can do this in a variety of ways and it will mean that you can watch sports live anywhere so long as you are connected to the internet. Most of the best football bookmakers offer free live streaming to fans, and in most cases you don’t even need to bet. This does not just mean your computer, as you will also be able to watch sport on your smart phone, which is ideal for people who commute at the same time as some live games.
There are quite a few options for online streaming in Detroit. One of the best ones is to stream Fox Sports Detroit Live on Hulu thanks to Live. The cost is not cheap at $55 per month, however you can get a free trial and there is enough content that this could satisfy you for all your streaming needs. It includes ABC, CBS, NBC as well as ESPN and TNT so you will be able to catch most of the games in most of sports that you are trying to watch.
