How many teams does your city have? (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, and WNBA)
If you don't have all 6, what teams could your city add soon?

MLS and WNBA are included but not the NLL National Lacrosse League? Rubbish on this thread!

Atlanta was on it's way but then the thrashers left, and who knows if we'll ever get an mls team. Don Garber needs to drop this 2nd team in new york and expand to a whole region of the country he's left out.
I'd even be happy if Charlotte got an mls team before Atlanta as long as he starts expanding south.

6?

It's 4.... "The Big Four"

MLS is still growing and the WNBA can only wish they would have half the importance the NBA has. If you're gonna include those two, you might as well bring in Arena Football since it's basically on the same level.

How many cities and regions have Lacrosse? Is that a national sport? I apologize but I have never heard much about Lacrosse being a national sport.

I included all major sports in different categories that have teams nationwide. WNBA is the only major sport team for women that is contested nationwide by most major cities so that is why I included it. Most major cities have all 6 of these sports.

Dallas has all but one: the WNBA. Which seems odd to me that it doesn't.

Seems fair to include the WNBA if you want since it's your thread. Based on cities with currently active teams, think the answer to your question might be NY, Chicago and DC. Not all the major cites have WNBA teams, however. Out of the top 10 MSAs, only half have WNBA teams, as many have folded in the other metros. On the other hand, there are WNBA teams in several mid-size cities, and there are even teams in Connecticut and Tulsa.

Just for grins, here's an interesting link to a Wiki article on cities with teams in the Top 4 leagues (which near the end also lists cities with teams in the Top 5 leagues, including MLS): U.S. cities with teams from four major league sports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It's got lots of stats that CD folks like to examine and then fight over

Los Angeles Metro has everything but NFL right now.
2 MLB teams, 2 MLS teams, 2 NBA teams, 2 NHL teams, and 1 WNBA team. Ironically we don't have the NFL.

They are working to bring a team to "Farmers Field" proposed for downtown Los Angeles or the proposed "Los Angeles Stadium" in the City of Industry east of L.A.

Charlotte needs baseball bad. We also got rid of our WNBA team a couple years ago.
