Tuscaloosa is 2020’s Best Small City for Football Fans
The City of Champions has been named the best small city in America for football fans. Wallethub recently compared data from over 240 cities across the United States to determine which places were best for football fans.
Here's more on how the rankings were determined via Wallethub:
In order to determine the best and worst cities for football fans, WalletHub compared 245 U.S. cities based on 21 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable conditions for football fans.
For our sample, we chose cities with at least one professional football team (NFL) or at least one college football team (NCAA, including FBS and FCS). We then grouped the cities by division — “Pro Football” and “College Football” — and assigned weights to each divisional category based on its popularity among fans.
Finally, we determined each city’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its overall score and used the resulting scores to rank-order our sample.
After comparing all the metrics, Tuscaloosa was named the best small city in the United States for football fans. Roll Tide!
