Sports in March...


Myself, my partner and my father in law are travelling to San Francisco & Santa Barbara for 10 days in march- 13th-23rd.

I love American sports, and would love to try and catch a live game of some sort when there. I have looked at what I can, but it seems to be out of season for a lot of sports.

I was just wondering if anyone knows of any sports likely to be on between those dates? we are in San Fran from 13-16th, then Santa Barbara from 16th-20th, then back to San Fran from 20-23rd.

Ideally I want to catch a baseball or (American) football game, but would also be happy with Ice Hockey or Soccer (football!). I am less bothered about basketball or anything else.

I dont mind what level- it doesnt have to be a top level game, would be happy with a college or even high-school game, just to experience what it is like. The same for type of game- I dont care if its not a league match, but is just a friendly or training game or anything.

Does anyone know of anything that might be good, and convienient to get to that might suit?

thanks it advance!

Looks like you have a good chance of seeing the Golden State Warriors or the San Jose Sharks and whoever they are playing! Check out this website - espn.go.com/travel/sports/calendar/…

The University of California Santa Barbara Gauchos baseball team is playing during your stay in the area: - ucsbgauchos.com/sports/…schedule

The UCSB basketball team is in The Big West. The Big West's Tournament is scheduled to be in Anaheim March 13 - 15. The Gauchos: ucsbgauchos.com/sports/…schedule Unfortunately, Anaheim is a 2:10 hour drive south on a good day.

UCSB men's volleyball is also happening:


Looks like you have opportunities for UCSB tennis, softball, and water polo:
