    Miami is one of the best cities for American football fans

    Miami is among the ten best cities for American football fans, according to a report released by the personal finance site a few days after the great event of the American favorite sport: Super Bowl LVII.

    The city ranked seventh with a score of 45.42 out of a maximum of 100 in the standings led by Pittsburgh at 61.61, followed by Green Bay at 53.34, Dallas 53.2, Boston 51.75, Los Angeles 51.1, New York 45.54, Cincinnati 45.15, New Orleans at 44.51 and Kansas City at 42.89.

    To determine which cities provide the best or worst soccer experience, WalletHub compared more than 240 US cities with at least one college or professional soccer team on 21 key metrics ranging from the number of NFL and college football teams to stadium capacity and fan participation.

    Among the findings, he determined that the performance level of the Kansas City Chiefs, 80.15 percent, is 3.6 times better than the performance level of the Houston Texans, with 22.06 percent.

    The Kansas City Chiefs will meet the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday in Arizona.

    The City of Jacksonville, Florida has the lowest average ticket price for an NFL game at $84.76, which is 1.8 times less expensive than Las Vegas, which has the highest price at $153.47.

    Green Bay, Wisconsin, has the highest fan turnout for an NFL team, 73.32, which is 71.2 times higher than New York, the city with the lowest at 1.03, according to the report.

    The report states that soccer is by far the favorite sport of Americans, with more popularity than basketball, baseball and soccer combined. In fact, 62% of Americans consider themselves fans or “somewhat” of professional soccer, and 54% say the same about college soccer.

    WalletHub also consulted experts on what strategies fans should have to enjoy watching football, at home, in a bar, in the stadium, without breaking the bank.

    James Weiner, an adjunct professor of sports management at the University of Tampa, said if people are going to attend the game, they should take advantage of the stadium’s amenities.

    He explained that there are rooms for parties, pre-game entertainment, games for children and social areas that are often free.

    “To get into the stadium, one tip I recommend is to go to a bar near the stadium a few hours before the start of the game and check last-minute ticket prices about 30-40 minutes before the game starts. If you find a bargain, grab it and walk across the street to the stadium. If there’s no good deal, enjoy the game at the bar,” Weiner said.
