The best answer to that question would be Toronto. Huge market with no NFL team.

This makes the league unbalanced. The NFL is balanced already (every division has four teams, each conference has four divisions, 16 teams in each conference).

San Diego is 2.9 million versus SA's 2.3 million is not sooo....much bigger and SA is growing much faster, so by the time the NFL is rolling in SA the metro will be close to 2.7 -3.0 million.

And I mean the NFL specifically. The best of the best of sports leagues.

Pro soccer, if you want to call it that, is doomed to fail in San Antonio. Not enough true soccer fans here. MLS succeeds in very large, very cosmopolitan cities with lots of immigrants from a wide variety of countries. Cities like New York and WDC are in this category.


SA has 8 billionares and Dallas has 15. Dallas made the list of having the most billionaires in the world, so that would say S.A is not far from making that list. Plus selling out only 8 home games is a piece of cake.

Interesting point. Don't forget Baltimore's 2.7 million and St. Louis' 2.7 million. And both those towns are losing residents in droves.

No they aren't. All of these metro areas have been growing (of course, not as fast as SA). San Diego is most likely moving to LA (if Jacksonville doesn't, but LA can have two teams). Baltimore's team has great support and B-More is near the middle of the Boston-Washington corridor. Just more people around Baltimore and there is more corporate support up there. There is much more to choosing an NFL city than just metro population counts.

San Antonio will eventually surpass all those metros within 10 years and in many aspects other than just population.
