Three championships appear to be the most. This was done by Los Angeles in 2002 when the Lakers (NBA), Sparks (WNBA) and Galaxy (MLS) all won their respective title.
North American Cities with Multiple Championships in the Same Year
People often speculate about how often a North American city has won multiple championships in a single year. Multiple championships do occur on a fairly regular basis if you look at all of the major North American Sports - baseball (MLB), basketball (NBA), football (CFL and NFL), hockey (NHL), and soccer (MLS). It was last accomplished in 2004 by Boston when the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl and the Boston Red Sox won the world series.
The multiple championship feat was first accomplished by the City of Toronto in 1914. In that year the Toronto Argonauts of Canadian Football and the Toronto Blueshirts of the National Hockey League both won their respective championships (the Grey Cup and the Stanley Cup).
Cities with Two or More Champions in the Same Year
Only one city has won three championships in a year. This feat was accomplished by Los Angeles in 2002 when the Los Angeles Lakers (NBA), Los Angeles Sparks (WNBA) and the Los Angeles Galaxy (MLS) each won their respective championship. Nine cities have won multiple championships in a single year, some of them multiple times. The cities with two or more championships in a single year are:
Dual Championships by Year
Since 1914, multiple championships in the same city have occurred 20 times. Following is a list by year of the cities with multiple championships and the teams that accomplished the feat:
