The survey itself compared 420 of the largest cities in the country by looking at 50 key metrics across five of today’s most popular sports – baseball, football, basketball, hockey, and soccer. Among those metrics considered were the number of professional sports teams per capita, the average price of tickets, and overall viewership.

Chicago is home to the Chicago Bandits of the National Pro Fastpitch softball league. Chicago is home to the Chicago Force of the Independent Women’s Football League, as well as the Chicago Bliss of the Legends Football League.

  6. Philadelphia
  7. Detroit
  8. Washington DC
