City of Champions

Hundreds of champions will be awarded medals in 20 sports at the 2023 National Senior Games in Pittsburgh. That puts them in good company with our winning sports teams, and a huge reason why porting News magazine awarded Pittsburgh the coveted “Best Sports City” title.

In July, raise the Jolly Roger with the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park, consistently named one of the best ballparks in the league. Cheer on the Pittsburgh Riverhounds soccer club at Highmark Stadium as the city skyline lights up behind the pitch.

For sports buffs, we recommend diving into Pittsburgh's past at must-see museums featuring our sports heritage. Tour The Clemente Museum, the largest collection of Roberto Clemente memorabilia in the world. The Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum not only spotlights hundreds of years of Steelers, Pirates and Penguins history, but also includes fascinating looks into high school sports and Pittsburgh legends of racing, boxing, golf and more.
