With the “Big Game” coming this Sunday, 230 countries and over a billion humans are preparing to watch the team residing in West Missouri take on the national birds from the city of brotherly love.
The money mongers at WalletHub studied more than 240 big cities in the United States to try to find the best place for football fans. They used 25 metrics, from ticket prices to fan engagement, and they say that Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is the winner. Many fans most definitely disagree.
They claim that while Pittsburgh has their metallically named team, plenty of Pennsylvanians will be going green this weekend.
Green Bay, Wisconsin, ranked second, which isn’t a surprise since their fans like to wear wedges of cheese on their heads to show support for their favorite team. Dallas, Texas, ranked third, thanks to those fans of the cattle wranglers.
Boston, Massachusetts, ranked fourth on the list. If you’ve ever tried to find a jersey other than one that supports their revolutionaries in Beantown, you’ve probably failed. Los Angeles, California, rounded out the top five, and is home to two teams that helped their ranking. Philly placed 15th, New York came in at 6th, Princeton landed at 45th, and Piscataway made the list at 236th.
As for the worst city for football fans? The study found that the home of Orville Redenbacher, Valparaiso, Indiana, came in dead last.
