Posted6/13/2018 2:31 PM

In honor of the World Cup beginning on Thursday, WalletHub released its ranking of the best and worst U.S. cities for soccer fans.

Chicago checked in at No. 10 on the list.

WalletHub, a personal finance website that has made its name by ranking the best and worst cities for a variety of reasons, released its soccer fans study on Wednesday -- the same day FIFA, international soccer's governing body, voted to let the U.S., Canada and Mexico jointly host the 2026 World Cup.

WalletHub compared nearly 300 cities that had at least one college or professional soccer team. Chicago has six college soccer teams (DePaul, Loyola and University of Illinois -- Chicago), the Chicago Fire and the Chicago Red Stars.

Los Angeles and Orlando took the two top spots on the list with Seattle, Portland, Oregon, and New York ranking inside the top five.
