Keiser University Sport Management Professor Weighs in Regarding the Best US Sports Cities
Keiser University professor Michael DeLong recently shared insights relating to factors that support the best sports cities with WalletHub, a personal finance website.
DeLong pointed out that while a strong community fan base is important, collaboration from neighboring and local city leaders also plays a role in the success of a team, as it helps to promote the construction of new stadiums and arenas when necessary. Fan support is not only based on a team’s victories but the overall game day experience as fans root for either hometown teams or those who play in neighboring cities such as the Dallas Cowboys who play in Arlington or the San Francisco 49ers who play in Santa Clara.
Many teams seem to reflect the spirit of their home cities DeLong noted while pointing out the strong and robust image of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the ‘flashy’ persona of the Miami Dolphins. He also reminded readers that while the viability of a publicly funded stadium can depend on the city and team, such structures often pay for themselves long-term through revenue generation and the creation of jobs. As a lifelong fan of the Dallas Cowboys and also a fantasy sports enthusiast, DeLong shared that he is pleased there is room for both forms of fandom.
