The Seattle Seahawks are based in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks compete in the West division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL).

Joining the NFL in 1976 as an expansion team, the Seahawks are the only NFL franchise based in the Pacific Northwest.

The Hawks’ fan base extends from Washington State to parts of Oregon as well as Montana, Idaho, and Alaska. The Seahawks also have fans in the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.

 The Seahawks are also the only American football team to have played in both the NFL and the American Football Conference (AFC), having played in the championship game of both football conferences.

Seahawks fans have been referred to collectively as the “12th Man” because of the noise they make at CenturyLink Field, which is located in downtown Seattle.

The so-called Legion of Boom has twice set the Guinness World Record for the loudest crowd noise at a sporting event, first on 16 September 2013 during a game against the San Francisco 49ers; the second on 2 December 2013, during a Monday Night Football game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Seattle Seahawks have won 10 division titles and three conference championships. The Seahawks have made it to the Super Bowl three times.

The Seathawks lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl 2005 by a score of 21 to 10. They beat the Denver Broncos by a convincing score of 43 to 8 in 2013. They lost to the New England Patriots ithe following year by a close score of  28 to 24.

  1. I’d have to say the Backstage is top 3. So much Seahawk spirit there, your blood literally turns blue. It’s packed with 100+ Seahawkers a week. We chant, we roar, we do Seahawks shots at halftime a gratis. It’s the best place to be outside of the Clink.

  2. FYI…Torino’s is no longer in business. It’s been shuttered a couple years now. Scooter’s Pub is the OFFICIAL bar for Las Vegas.
    And as we like to say here,Scooter’s is the next best thing to being in Seattle. The 12’s that visit us every week agree!
    GO HAWKS!!!

  3. Backstage Rocks It! I am so happy there, it feels like I’m home in Seattle every game!!
    Great fans, great venue…It’s “Clink South”!!!! GO HAWKS!!
    (& GO BACKSTAGE!)

  4. This is the least scientific thing ever and I am hugely biased, but let me just say that Carlow East in NYC is a fantastic place to be a 12th Man! Every game we pack the place and scream ourselves hoarse. Drinking, merriment, chanting, and a post-victory dance party…what could be better? Only the C-Link!

  5. Great competition…and ultimately all 12s are a family. In addition to having a blast each week at Backstage: http://bit.ly/1eBSZuA, one of the great things about the place is that we also do charitable events. For example, this season we’ll be responsible for sending over $5,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

  6. I’d like to add Bill McNally’s Irish Pub in Oakland, CA to this list. You feel like you are in Seattle at this place! They even have Rainier Beer there (how many places outside of WA can say this?).

  7. Blake Street Tavern in Denvwr was rated the #1 sports bar in Colorado and thats where the Rocky Mountain Sea Hawkers meet every week! The bar has three levels as well as outside tv’s and fire pits. We take over the downstairs area with 22 tv’s so wherever you sit you have a full view of the Hawks. We have discounted beer prices when you use your hawk mug and Jell-O shots at every touchdown. Come on by and join your Hawk brotherian in a cheer and beer!!

  8. Caylyn here: We are in Downtown Denver near Coors field. I just had knee surgery and was so excited to see your posts I wanted to add to it. I probably should wait until the meds wear off so I don’t make typos!!

  9. Central Florida Sea Hawkers have made Milker’s Ale House in Winter Park on Lee Road their home to cheer on the Hawks. They are very generous to our fans and have made us a priority over the Jets fans!

  10. Typos is my middle name, Cayyn! No matter how hard I try and how many times I proof something, they is always AT LEAST one that gets past me. But so nice of you to share this information! Would be cool to post some pix of the bar when you’re up to it.

  11. Best place to watch the Seahawks Game in the Tampa Bay Florida is at Maloneys Irish Bar Down town. You will find a group of Loud Proud Seahawks Fans. Great Food, family friendly, and drink special. Home of the Tampa Bay Area Sea Hawkers for 4 years running!

  12. Would love to, Breena, but I’m based in Hong Kong. I’m planning to visit Boston next year, however, on my BIG TRIP HOME so I’ll hopefully have a chance to check it out.

  13. Michael, I was in Billings with our group at the Red Door last week. Had a GREAT time. About 50 Seahawks fans winning prizes, cheering and having a GREAT 12 time!!!! How can I send you pictures to share?
