Worst Football Towns in America List Includes a City in Illinois
Talk about a gut punch. Do football fans in this Illinois city deserve to be listed among the worst football towns in America?
While you might want to initially disagree, it's kind of hard to dispute Travel Alot's claims. They listed 30 different cities in the US and no, they aren't all towns that are also homes to NFL teams.
While the travel website does list Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Cincinnati as bad football cities with NFL squads, they also call out smaller towns like Louisville, West Lafayette, and Jackson, Mississippi.
Travel Alot throws some barbs toward Chicago, yep, the Second City is one of the worst football towns in America:
Chicago, Illinois has a disappointing following of NFL fans, making it generally unengaged by the sport. Da Bears may be da best thing ever for a select few, but these days, they are just the butt of an SNL joke.
To make matters worse, it seems Chicago doesn't care if anyone joins in on the fun as the city has one of the least accessible NFL stadiums in the country. They also charge some of the highest NFL ticket prices too.
Soldier Field is one of the worst stadiums in the NFL. It's hard to get into and one of the most difficult to maneuver.
If the Bears are serious about moving to a new stadium, I for one, can't wait. I'll even help them pack.
