Sports Fanatic

Let’s go Macon! Show off your hometown spirit and cheer on the teams headquartered in Macon during one of their games. Between the Macon Bacon, the Macon Mayhem, and the Mercer Bears, you don’t have to leave downtown to watch live sports. 

In the summer, enjoy America’s favorite pastime in historic Luther Williams Field, the second oldest baseball stadium in the nation. The Macon Bacon offers a family-friendly and entertaining gameday experience with themed nights like Stars Night, Bark in the Park, and more. You’ll want to pick up some merch to rep Macon wherever you go. It’s so cool that it even caught Kevin Bacon’s attention. 

In the winter, the Macon Centreplex turns its floor into an ice rink for the Macon Mayhem hockey team! Just like the Macon Bacon, the Mayhem games offer fun for the whole family with themed nights and wholesome entertainment. 

Show your 478 pride and cheer on the Mercer Bears during football, basketball, baseball and sportball, tennis, and volleyball games. 

If you’re more a participant rather than a spectator, downtown businesses and facilities offer ways for you to compete with your friends and teammates. Try axe-throwing at Maniaxe, climb the walk at Macon Rocks Climbing Gym, play a game of ping pong on Poplar Street or cornhole on Third Street, and play a match of pickleball at Tattnall Square Park.
