Portland

Portland is Maine’s largest metropolitan city and is located just 3 miles from Maine’s major airport, the Portland International Jetport. The city is surrounded by Casco Bay and is still very much a working waterfront. This bustling city is currently home to two semi-pro sports teams — the Maine Red Claws which is the D-League affiliate to the Boston Celtics and has the home court advantage at the Portland Expo; Hadlock Field hosts the Portland Sea Dogs which is the double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox and offers a “mini- Fenway” atmosphere.  The Cross Insurance Arena, formerly the Cumberland County Civic Center, has 34,500 square feet of space and 6,000 seats, hosts events such as the University of Maine men's ice hockey and the Ice Breaker Invitational, was home arena for 23 seasons to the AHL Portland Pirates and welcomes a variety of top name concerts and special events during all four seasons.   

This charming city offers state-of-the-art arenas, venues and universities, and certainly runs the gamut for the types of sporting events that could be hosted right in the city. Its unique terrain is also more than ideal for road races, regattas, triathlons, island-to-mainland swim competitions and urban obstacle courses.

Portland, Maine has the resources to make to make your next sporting event a success!
