Since 2000, the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins have won a combined 11 championships, making Massachusetts the winningest state for professional sports in the United States.  Massachusetts hosts world-renowned sporting events such as the Boston Marathon and Head of the Charles Regatta, and is also credited with inventing two sports, basketball and volleyball, in the 19th century.

“Massachusetts is a state of champions, and we look forward to an exciting year ahead of professional, collegiate and amateur sports across the Commonwealth,” said MOTT Executive Director Keiko M. Orrall.  “We are especially excited to welcome, for the first time ever, the prestigious Army Navy game coming to Gillette Stadium in December, a perfect way to cap the year.”
