Chicago Ranked as the 5th Best Sports City in America

Whaddup, sports fans?

According to a new study by WalletHub, Chicago is now the 5th best big city for sports in the US!

Source: WalletHub

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 sports – 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. Chicago ranked among the top ten for basketball, baseball (duh) and hockey (also 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 Chicago wasn’t ranked number one overall, well, I’ll leave you with just three words: The Chicago Bears.
