The Québec City Area has been a breeding ground for some great athletes over the years.
Names like those of hockey greats Jean Béliveau and Guy Lafleur spontaneously spring to mind, along with their memorable exploits with the Aces and the Remparts. But did you know that Gary Carter, Andre Dawson, and Steve Rogers of the Montréal Expos all played at Québec City's municipal stadium in their early years?
Year after year, the Remparts attract huge crowds and are among the candidates for Québec Major Junior Hockey League’s top honors. Get ready for action and great atmosphere at the Centre Vidéotron, as families attend in large numbers (and loudly!) to the games. Don’t miss one of the hottest show in town!
Fall in Québec City just wouldn't be the same without Rouge et Or Football at Université Laval! Founded in 1995, this talented university team has already won the Canadian championships seven times!
The team enjoys the support of an incredibly loyal—and vocal!— fan base. Local supporters have mastered the art of the tailgate party, storming the PEPS university stadium parking lot on gameday mornings. It's more than a football match—it's an event!
Baseball fans just have to take in a Capitales game at the municipal stadium. The stadium has a soul all its own—and great views of the city.
Champions of the Can-Am league for the fifth consecutive year in 2013, the Caps field a roster that includes a number of Québec players, which ads to the appeal for local fans. And since player salaries are a far (very far) cry from the big leagues, fans can't help but think that this is the way the sport used to be (and was meant to be) played.

Of course, Québec City isn't just about team sports. With events like the Coupe Banque Nationale (women's tennis), Vélirium (a bike event built around the Mountain Bike World Cup), the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec, and the FIS Snowboard World Cup, there's plenty of year-round competitive action for fans of individual sports, too.
