Although Williamsburg is known primarily for its history, it is also – apparently – known for its football fandom.

Less than a week before this year’s Super Bowl, WalletHub has released a study naming Williamsburg America’s 44th best city for football fans, according to a WalletHub news release.

And as far as small cities go, Williamsburg ranks even higher at 10th in the country.

WalletHub compared more than 240 cities with at least one college or professional football team based on 21 key metrics, including college football fan engagement, stadium capacity, college team performance and more.

Williamsburg also ranks 160th for college football fan engagement, 62nd for college football stadium capacity, and 62nd for minimum season ticket price for a college football game.

WYDaily took to the streets to ask area football fans who they think will win Super Bowl LII… and who they’re rooting for.

Listen to the audio above to hear which team most Historic Triangle residents hope to see raise the Vince Lombardi Trophy Sunday.
