Football is an American tradition, but there are some places in the U.S. that are better for football fans than others.

On Monday, WalletHub published a report that found the best cities for football fans.

For its findings, the personal finance website compared 245 U.S. cities with at least one football team -- either college or professional.

The cities were measured by 21 metrics that included: number of NFL teams, average ticket price for an NFL game, franchise value, number of college football teams, college football fan engagement and number of coaches in the past 10 seasons, among others.

Not only did WalletHub find an overall result, but the website also divided its findings by division -- professional football and college football -- as well as city size.

The top three cities for the pro football division were, in order: Pittsburgh, Pa.; Boston, Mass.; and Dallas, Texas.

Meanwhile, the top three cities for college football were Clemson, S.C.; Tuscaloosa, Ala.; and Fargo, N.D.

Clemson and Tuscaloosa were also at the top of WalletHub’s small-city ranking, with Tuscaloosa at the top, Clemson in second place and State College, Pa., in third place.

In Wallethub’s midsize-city ranking, Green Bay, Wis., took the top spot followed by Buffalo, N.Y., and Glendale, Ariz.

The large-city ranking had Pittsburgh in first place, followed by Boston and Dallas.

According to the website’s methodology, small cities had fewer than 100,000 people, midsize cities had between 100,000 and 300,000 people and large cities had more than 300,000 people.
