    Super Bowl LVIII takes place on Sunday, Feb. 11, in Las Vegas — with the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs team taking on the San Francisco 49ers. 

    For football fans everywhere, Super Bowl Sunday is easily one of the most exciting days — and this year’s match-up is expected to be nothing less than that. 

    Whether fans of the sport watch the annual championship game at home with friends or out on the town, some cities are known to be better for football festivities than others. 

    HERE’S WHICH US CITIES ARE THE BEST FOR SINGLES TO MINGLE AHEAD OF VALENTINE’S DAY

    WalletHub announced its list of the top 10 cities for football fans ahead of the 58th Super Bowl Sunday occurrence. 

    The company said in a press release that it compared 249 U.S. cities on 21 metrics including pro football and college football — then categorized the cities based on large, medium and small size.

    Large cities were classified as those with more than 300,000 people, medium cities had between 100,000 and 300,000 people, and small cities had fewer than 100,000 people. 

    Some scaling factors include the number of NFL championship wins in a city, the number of NFL coaches in the last 10 seasons, college football fan engagement and college football stadium capacity, among others.

    WalletHub analyst Cassandra Happe said in a media statement that deciding which cities were the best for football fans came down to a few key factors. 

    “Deciding the best football cities ultimately comes down to a combination of how successful the cities’ teams are, how easy it is for spectators to enjoy games and how dedicated the local fanbase is,” she said.
