Welcome to Big Ten Country

Experience the thrill of intercollegiate athletics at its highest level by catching an exciting home game at Rutgers University. The Scarlet Knights are a member of the prestigious Big Ten Conference. Nearly 1,000 Scarlet Knight student-athletes compete in 24 athletic programs against some of the best schools in the country. 

Rutgers is known as the birthplace of college football and SHI Stadium is a short, free shuttle ride away from City Center. Meet in New Brunswick City Center to celebrate before or after the game with great spots for dining or fun bars and taverns where you can cheer on the home team. For more information about transportation options to the game, visit Rutgers Athletics.  

The Rutgers Athletic Center, or "The RAC" as it is affectionately called, is home to the men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as hosting wrestling, gymnastics, and various events. Opened in 1977, the RAC is one of the top arenas in the nation to watch college basketball. This 8,000 seat arena has been dubbed, “louder than a 757 from nearby Newark” making it one of the toughest college basketball arenas in the country for opponents. For more information about attending events at the RAC, visit this link at Rutgers Athletics. Can't make it to the game? Catch the game with friends at your favorite bar, tavern, or restaurant in City Center.


FREE Shuttle Service from Downtown New Brunswick

Buses depart regularly beginning three hours prior to kick-off at the New Brunswick Train Station Albany Street Bus Stop (located next to the taxi cab waiting-area) and return up to three hours after the game.  Call 1-800-626-RIDE for more information.
