If you are a big sports fan, it is probably important that you bring your moving boxes to a place that has plenty of games and matches to watch. Luckily, there may be one region of the country that has pretty much everything you are looking for. If the mid-Atlantic sounds like a place where you will get your sports fix, it could be time to consider getting your moving containers together and speaking with your moving company about a relocation date. There's sports going on in these cities all year, so you may not be too far away from the sport that is your favorite.

New York
The Big Apple is a center for passionate fans. It has multiple professional teams in the area, as well as a sizable number of college teams. If you like the National Hockey League (NHL), there is the Rangers that play in Madison Square Garden, as well as the Islanders, residents of Nassau Coliseum. The latter is planning a move to Brooklyn, and will play in the Barclays Center for easy access. For basketball, the city is the home of two teams from the National Basketball Association (NBA). These are the Knicks - also residents of Madison Square Garden - and the Nets - who play in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Two members of the National Football League (NFL) play nearby in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and it is possible to see the Giants and Jets at MetLife Stadium. If soccer is your thing, you can see the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer (MLS) play at Red Bull Arena in nearby Harrison, New Jersey.

Philadelphia is the home to a number of teams, as well. The NHL's Flyers play in the Wells Fargo Center, which is also the home to the NBA's 76ers. If you are more of a baseball fan, then there's no worries. The city is home to one of the MLB's oldest teams, the Phillies. You can find their games at Citizens Bank Park. When looking for football, the City of Brotherly Love also has you covered. It is the home of the NFL's Eagles, and the team plays at Lincoln Financial Field. For soccer fans, you can check out the Union, and the team plays in nearby Chester, Pennsylvania, at PPL Park.

Heading down South will bring you to another city that is well-known for its sports. Baltimore has plenty of options for the fanatic, and you may want to start out at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. This is the home of the MLB's Orioles. This is also next to M&T Bank Stadium, where the NFL's Ravens play. If you head there in the early fall, you may be able to see both teams play in one weekend.

Washington, D.C.
Another city that has a rich sports history is located less than one hour south of Baltimore. Washington, D.C. may be known as the nation's capital, but it has no shortage of sporting options. If you are a big baseball fan, then it may be a good idea to travel over to Nationals Park, the home of MLB's Nationals. You can also get plenty of other sports. Go to the Verizon Center if you are a fan of hockey or basketball. The NBA's Wizards call the arena home, as do the NHL's Capitals. If football is more of your thing, you can check out FedExField, which is located nearby in Landover, Maryland. For soccer fans, you can check out DC United, and the city's representative of MLS play in RFK Stadium.
