Whaddup, sports fans?

The survey itself compared 420 of the largest cities in the country by looking at 50 key metrics across five of today’s most popular activities – baseball, football, basketball, hockey and soccer. Among those metrics considered were the number of professional sports teams per capita, the average price of tickets and overall viewership.


Included in WalletHub’s report was a break down of the best cities for each individual sport. New York ranked among the top ten for soccer, hockey and football. The city also took the number one spot for baseball, which, duh.

Other cities who made the top ten were:

  1. Boston
  2. NYC
  3. LA
  4. Pittsburgh
  5. Chicago
  6. Philadelphia
  7. Detroit
  8. Washington DC
  9. Dallas
  10. Atlanta

If you’re wondering why New York wasn’t ranked number one overall, well, I’ll leave you with just two words: The Knicks.
