Why Vegas is the Perfect Spot for Sports Lovers

People Watching Football at Stadium Swim Pool in Vegas

Our city continues to grow and offer more to everyone, which means our sports culture is also growing – and it’s incredible. The world’s largest sportsbook, professional sports teams, and even some poolside game viewings are just a few reasons you need to visit Vegas if you love sports. Whether you like to attend games, place bets, or just watch at a bar, we have everything you need! Read on to see how Las Vegas is the right sports destination for you.


The Largest Sportsbook in the World


If you’re into betting on sports, then Vegas is the perfect place to be. In Las Vegas, we have the largest sportsbook in the world at Circa Las Vegas. When you come to Circa Sportsbook, you’ll find three floors of sports betting you can’t get anywhere else, which includes a 78M pixel screen to watch every major game, a 1000-person viewing capacity, and Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN) broadcasting daily from our on-site studio. On top of that, you can head to Circa Stadium Swim® to elevate your sports viewing to a new level and bet on Circa | Sports kiosks by the pool.

Not only is the size amazing, but the atmosphere is as well. At Circa | Sports, you’re sure to be surrounded by sports enthusiasts who truly care about the game and the art of betting, from the experts on the Circa | Sports team to your fellow sports bettors. With that sort of energy and know-how, you know you’re in great company.

The Las Vegas Sports Teams


One of the most exciting things to witness in Vegas is the growth of our sports teams. If you’re a fan of going to a game instead of watching on a screen, we have good news for you! With the introduction of professional sports teams, we now have a large selection of home games to attend. Vegas now has an NFL team with the Raiders, an NHL team with the Vegas Golden Knights, a WNBA team with the Las Vegas Aces, and a USL team with the Las Vegas Lights FC. Not only do our teams have a ridiculous amount of talent, but they also get the city’s spirits up.

Our professional sports teams may be relatively new, but supercharged fans make it feel like we’ve had decades of loyalty and excitement for our teams. The energy of seeing a home game with locals is a fun experience like no other. Can’t make the game in person? That energy still carries through if you’re watching at a bar or sportsbook!


The Sporting Events in Vegas


As the sports scene continues to grow, so do the sporting events in Vegas. From watch parties to larger events such as the NFL Draft (and rumors of hosting the Big Game in 2024), there’s always something going on with sports in the city. Though we have some great home teams, as mentioned above, Vegas is also home to many other sporting events outside of VGK and Raiders games. For quite some time now, Las Vegas has been known as one of the best places to catch UFC fights and hosts some of the most anticipated fights in the industry.

You can also come to town to catch NASCAR events like the Pennzoil 400, rodeo competitions such as the PBR World Finals and the National Finals Rodeo (NFR), and the NBA Summer League. No matter what your sports interests are, Vegas probably has an event for you to attend!

The Sports Bars


A sports bar is the perfect place to cheer on your favorite team (or destress after a game) while being surrounded by fellow sports fans. Some of our favorites are BarCanada® at the D and Overhang Bar at Circa Las Vegas. At BarCanada, you can get a full Canadian experience – which of course means hockey galore (and other sports, of course)! Overhang Bar is a great place to go to watch the action of the Circa | Sports sportsbook below and grab a perfectly crafted cocktail. You can also grab a burger and a beer on tap nearby at Victory Burger if you’re hungry.

Whether you go before the game, after the game, or to watch the entire game, you can’t go wrong at one of the many sports bars in Las Vegas. Be sure to do some research before hitting the bars, you don’t want to walk in wearing your team’s jersey and end up in a rival team’s bar!


The Pools (with Sports)


How often do you get to watch your favorite team on a giant screen by lounging by the pool and sipping a delicious cocktail? Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, in Vegas, we make “too good to be true” into reality. Stadium Swim at Circa Las Vegas offers an incredible experience of poolside sports watching with 6 pools, a 40-foot tall high-definition screen, lounge chairs and cabanas, and the perfect combination of fun and sun. You can even catch your winter games here – the pools are heated to the perfect temperature year-round.

On top of the sports viewing experience, you can also place some bets by the pool at one of the Circa | Sports kiosks. Or, you can simply end your pool day by heading down to the sportsbook inside the resort. The best yet? If you book a room at the D, you get passes to Stadium Swim during your stay.


When considering your next trip, you should consider Las Vegas as the ultimate destination for sports. From our Las Vegas sports teams to incredible opportunities for sports betting, there is something for every type of sports fanatic here. Though your favorite team might let you down from time to time, you won’t be let down by enjoying sports in Vegas! Book your room at the D to be right in the middle of all the action.
