Texas City Lands on List of Top 10 for Football Fans Ahead of Super Bowl 51 [LIST]
After the success of this past season, I'm sure this city is even more fan friendly!
The countdown is on for Super Bowl LI (51). The festivities in Houston have already gotten underway after a major kickoff celebration at Minute Maid Park on Monday Night.
Side note: if you have seen pictures and videos of the party, you may have seen Ed from Good Burger (a.k.a. a Kel Mitchell from Kenan & Kel on Nickelodeon) reporting on the night.
And if Super Bowl news wasn't flooding your social media home feed enough, we are going to add to it with a list of the best and worst cities for football fans. Obviously the cities on the lower end of this list probably don't have an NFL team nor do they have a good college team. The top cities on this list definitely NFL teams, and to take it a step further, they have good playoff-worthy teams.
WalletHub compiled the list taking into account the number of professional and collegiate teams, the city's fan friendliness, average ticket prices and more. It's no surprise that Boston and Atlanta, the home cities of our two NFL contenders, landed in the top 11 (Atlanta came in at number 11 on the list).
Here are the top 10 cities for football fans:
10. Minneapolis, Minnesota (home of the Vikings)
9. Glendale, Arizona (home of the Cardinals)
8. Indianapolis, Indiana (home of the Colts)
7. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (home of the Eagles)
6. Seattle, Washington (home of the Seahawks)
5. Boston, Massachusetts (home of the Patriots)
4. Dallas, Texas (home of the Cowboys)
3. New York, New York (home of the Jets and Giants - a huge and fun rivalry among fans)
2. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (home of the Steelers)
1. Green Bay, Wisconsin (home of the Packers)
Now, the Super Bowl this year will be held in Houston, Texas. This city is the home of the Texans and actually came in at number 13 on the list. This means that Houston will be rocking this week and weekend.
