Dallas-Fort Worth hands down. Roughly $200 million spent (wasted) building high school football stadiums in Allen, Frisco, and McKinney over the last half decade.

Philly should have been listed as an option.

what dude said above^^ def dallas. football is a religion in texas, especially dallas. I know people that prefer high school football over the NFL in dallas. and they spend millions on stadiums for high school. And the cowboys are the most valued football team in the league

Yeah, pro football's debatable, and even there Dallas is in the running. But add in HS, and it's a no-brainer. Texas HS football is a freak show, even compared to the other hotbeds in the deep south and Pennsylvania, etc.

Not sure why Boston, San Fran, and Miami are even listed. Sure they have big markets but I'd never consider them "football cities". If you're talking football all the way from Peewee to pro then you can't really argue against Texas. Whole towns shut down for high school football games, Longhorns have their own darn channel, and the Cowboys are still one of, if not the most popular team in the country. If you're talking only pro then I'd throw in Buffalo and Philly to the mix. Those teams have some of the most hardcore fans and draw interest from pretty much the entire city to some degree. I'd also include Green Bay, KC, and Pittsburgh to that list as well. If you're talking college football then I'm sure at least a dozen cities could lay claim to being the best football city.

For this how are SF and Miami options ahead of some other cities


There are football focused cities for sure.


I tend to think NFL and not HS but get the Texas and Dallas points


Dallas is a football city even if only looking at the NFL regardless


To me (again NFL) there are few cities that are football first places


Pittsburgh
GB
Dallas
Philly
and some others


I might pick either GB or Pittsburgh if solely NFL based though

Miami is HUGE in football. They need to work on support but they are big on high school, the pop warner football leagues, etc. No other sport comes close in Miami. Not to mention, they are home to many football players that's playing in the league. I wouldn't put Miami over Dallas as a whole. But I have no problem with them being listed. Boston shouldn't be here tho.
