Spectator Sports

 

The Tucson market has not fared well in competition with the Phoenix Metro area.  Spring training baseball has moved north. However, opportunities for enjoying minor league and University of Arizona baseball have improved, and the array of  options for sports fans has been been expanded by the addition of professional soccer.

Trends in the availability and impact of popular sports reflects both the national economy and regional competition.
