High-intensity competition meets local pride. Lowell is home to a number of amateur and professional sports teams.

With reasonable prices, the City's sporting events draw big crowds with family-friendly entertainment. The Lowell Spinners, Single A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, showcase professional stars of tomorrow at LeLacheur Park and the Greater Lowell United FC, Lowell’s NPSL Soccer. UMass Lowell athletes, now all Division I, put their skills to the test in everything from soccer to golf. The River Hawks hockey team is a huge fan favorite, bringing the excitement of Division I hockey to Lowell.
