Sorry 12s, You’re #14 as Seattle Ranks The on List of Best Football Cities
While there are fans in only two American cities that are still watching and rooting for their teams heading into Super Bowl 55 this Sunday (February 7th), it doesn't necessarily mean that there aren't bigger fans left out in the cold.
Our good friends at WalletHub.com recently compiled a list of best and worst cities for football fans based on 21 different measurable metrics. Sorry Seahawks fans, aka 12s, you only rank #14. Pittsburgh, PA, Dallas, TX, Boston, MA, Green Bay, WI, New York, NY are the Top 5.
In all, 240 cites that have at least one pro or college team were counted in the study. Seattle, also home of the University of Washington Huskies, cam in at #126 for college cites. Don't sweat Coug fans -- Pullman, WA came in not too far behind the Dawgs at #139.
