Check out some of our local sports teams while you’re in Huntsville.
Did you know Huntsville is a hockey town? Well, we are! Cheer on our professional team, the Huntsville Havoc or, on the college level, the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s (UAH) Chargers. Both teams take to the ice at the Von Braun Center. Hockey is a favorite local pastime that makes up a defining part of Huntsville’s culture. There are family-friendly activities before and during the games, and the team mascots are always crowd-pleasers.
Huntsville Havoc is a member of the Southern Professional Hockey League and the UAH Chargers team is part of NCAA Division I.
A team whose name alone won national acclaim before ever stepping on the field, the Rocket City Trash Pandas are North Alabama's official Minor League AA baseball team. Cheer them on starting in 2021 at Toyota Field, and don't forget to snag your very own piece of Trash Pandas merchandise at the team's emporium in Bridge Street Town Centre.
Football in the South is a tradition – there's no doubt about that. Huntsville has its own share of football teams to cheer on, including:
Alabama A&M Bulldogs – an NCAA Division I college team
- Huntsville Tigers – a women’s tackle football team in the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA) league.
The Huntsville Speedway is a quarter-mile track in south Huntsville that holds races for stock and modified cars. Many racing legends had early career wins on this track, including Richard Petty.
Enjoy a nontraditional sport outing and watch Alabama’s first all-girl, flat-track derby skating league – the Dixie Derby Girls.
