Top 10 Greatest Sports Cities in the World

The Top Ten
1 Boston, United States Boston is Massachusetts’ capital and largest city. Founded in 1630, it’s one of the oldest cities in the U.S.

We are so lucky to have such good sports. The Patriots are always good. The Bruins just won the Stanley Cup and had the best record in the NHL last year.

The Celtics have been struggling lately but they are one of the most successful NBA franchises in history. The Red Sox just won the World Series, and the Revolution are pretty good. We don't have a historically bad team.

Boston is the best city for sports because, unlike New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles, there's only one team for every sport (Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics, NE Patriots, and NE Revolution). So unlike New York, Chicago, or LA, Boston sports fans all support the same teams. Not to mention the amount of passion and die-hard fans in Boston. There is truly nowhere else like it.
