Chapel Hill Among Best Cities For Soccer Fans
The Town of Chapel Hill ranks in the top 20 of WalletHub.com’s 2015 Best & Worst Cities for Soccer Fans.
Chapel Hill ranked 18th on a list of 172 cities. WalletHub used measurements such as ‘teams and performance’ and ‘costs and fan engagement’ with 18 weighted metrics to form the list.
UNC-Chapel Hill’s success in the sport likely plays a strong role in the positive ranking for the Town. The Tar Heel women’s soccer team is the winningest program in NCAA history with 22 of the sport’s 36 national championships. In this year’s Women’s World Cup, in which the U.S. National Team won the gold medal, six former Tar Heels were on the team and brought home their first gold medal.
