(Newser) – Super Bowl Sunday is here, and across the nation fans are donning their jerseys, making chili, and checking their squares. Some cities may be more pumped than others, per WalletHub, which looked at nearly two dozen metrics across 240 metropolitan areas to see which cities rated the best for football fans. The number of NFL and college championship wins a city has under its belt, the cost of game tickets, and stadium capacity all had an impact. Spoiler alert: Both teams in this year's championship game make the top 10, but it's Green Bay in the No. 1 spot. Rounding out the list for the best cities for patrons of the pigskin:

Best Cities for Football Fans

  1. Green Bay, Wis.
  2. Pittsburgh
  3. Dallas
  4. Boston
  5. New York
  6. Los Angeles
  7. Glendale, Ariz.
  8. Philadelphia
  9. Oakland, Calif.
  10. Cincinnati
