Oklahoma City Sports

ThunderOklahoma City is a sport-lover's paradise. Home of the Oklahoma City Thunder—and 2014 MVP, Kevan Durant—every Thunder game is an experience to remember. And don't worry about the lack of an NFL team. Football season gets rough and rowdy with the award winning programs at both the University of Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State University Cowboys. Summertime means baseball at the Bricktown Ballpark and the OKC Dodgers (Triple-A Affiliate to the LA Dodgers). And don't forget about the OKC Energy soccer team, and Riversport Adventures at the Boathouse District. Learn More »
