SPORTS

Greater Reading is athletic, competitive, and successful. Don’t worry: we’re also fun.

There’s something special about our competitive drive and culture of success. The Reading Royals, the city’s first professional hockey franchise, won the ECHL’s Kelly Cup in 2013. And the Reading Fightin’ Phils, winners of multiple Eastern League championships, are our Philadelphia Phillies affiliate.

Here, you’ll find an area that’s not just steeped in sports history, but actively a place where we cheer for the home teams! We’re called Baseballtown for a reason: our rich history in baseball dates back to our first professional team, the Reading Actives, in 1875. Today the Reading Fightin’ Phils provide family entertainment, and some of the best firework displays on the East Coast!

There’s a long list of sports legends, pros, and Olympians that hail from Greater Reading too. Join us and get in on the action.
