WalletHub's study shows Miami is the seventh-greatest city for football fans in all of America, even beating out Kansas City and San Fransico, the cities represented recently at Super Bowl LIV. The personal-finance website ranked 245 U.S. cities with at least one football team, either college or professional. After cities were selected, the study used 21 metrics to tabulate the results — everything from the number of teams in each city to the average ticket price for an NFL game, franchise value, college-football fan engagement, and the number of coaches in the past ten seasons.
Somehow, someway, Miami did well. Let's not question the math or science of it.
Pittsburgh was found to be the greatest city for football fans in America. Dallas, New York, Boston, New Orleans, and Green Bay also placed ahead of Miami. Jacksonville (ranked 25th) and Tampa (29th) also made the list, with Boca Raton (130th) further down the rankings.
So there you have it. Football in Miami is doing spectacularly aside from the scoreboard and stuff. Once those things get fixed, the Magic City will move up this list.
