In recent months, New Jersey's oldest and most popular sports bar and restaurant has welcomed a new breed of clientele. With first-class entertainment, you'll find it within walking distance of your base and minutes from the city's main attraction.
Founded in 1915, the Port of Newark is now leased and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the city's largest employer. The city has hosted many team events for much of its history, as well as being home to the Newark Devils, Newark Jets and Newark Liberty University. Downtown Newark is home to the largest concert hall in the United States, MetLife Stadium. Whether it's an internationally televised concert or a major sporting event, it's an ideal place for fans and talent alike. We have concerts in downtown Newark as well as other major cities in the country, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, New Orleans, Houston, Atlanta, Seattle and Chicago.
The facility is the largest arena in southern New Jersey and has long had success with the Newark Devils, Newark Jets and Newark Liberty University.
In the 1930s, the Tornadoes moved to 1A10A1, where they played for two seasons before the USFL shut down their business. The arena hosted the New Jersey Devils, the Newark Jets and Newark Liberty University, as well as a number of other sports teams. In the first game of the season, the Oranjes faced the Syracuse Athletic Club in front of 1,000 fans at the arena.
They reached the championship game again, but lost 149-10 in a game in Newark to the Boston Sweepers. This season has been notable in that several games have been played in Newark by the New Jersey Devils, the Newark Jets and Newark Liberty University, as well as other sports teams.
From 1925 onwards, the Frankford Yellow Jackets could be seen playing in Philadelphia, as could the New York Giants at Manhattan's Polo Grounds. In 2010, the Jets and Giants moved into a modern arena built a stone's throw from Giants Stadium, and in 2010, as part of a $2.5 million renovation of the old polo field.
The Meadowlands Sports Complex is also home to the New York Jets, New Jersey Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. The Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport also bears the name of Newark Liberty International Airport, the site of the World Trade Center in Newark.

Rutgers' fan base is from Middlesex County, the state's western part, not to mention its former base, which is the largest in the states. Essex County College teams are represented by the Rutgers-Newark football team and the Newark City College basketball team.

The state, one of the original 13 states, is bordered by New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia. The district stretches from the mainland Marble Hill section and includes a number of islets in the East River, mainly on Manhattan Island. In the fall, it flows into the Hudson River and then turns east, west to the Atlantic Ocean, then north to Manhattan and finally east to Newark.
Built in 1977, the Golden Dome Athletic Center is the center of Rutgers-Newark athletics with over 2,000 seats. It is located on the east side of the Hudson River, north of New York City and south of the Newark waterfront.
The Newark Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, home to the New York Yankees, is the only major league franchise to bear the state's name.

In 2008 and 2009, Rutgers expanded its team to include a basketball team playing at the Rutgers-Newark Center, the largest basketball facility in New Jersey. With the completion of the Meadowlands Sports Complex and the construction of a new football and basketball stadium in 2010, Rutgers University in New York City, and Rutgers' new football stadium, it has made a push to take over the former University of North Carolina home of Chapel Hill's football team.
