Our sports teams represent the State of Massachusetts, not the City of Amherst and should perform in front of the Residents of Massachusetts. A basketball team that plays over 30 games should schedule at least 1 game every year in Pittsfield, Springfield, Worcester, and Boston. This year we are playing 1 game in Springfield. Holy Cross isn't on the schedule however they would be a good opponent to play in Worcester ever other year at the Worcester Arena. A basketball doubleheader, the Men's BB Team and Women's BB team would be even better. :agree: Playing games in the major metropolitan areas would build fan support and help recruiting for these and other sports. Another major benefit, increased applications, donations, and public support. Football is somewhat more difficult as we only play 5-6 home games plus 1-2 playoff games. At least 1 football game should be played in Eastern Massachusetts and the logical place is in Foxboro since the stadium, access roads, and train serve the Patriots Stadium. What over stadiums with at least 20K seats are available?
