Recent Updates

Nov 6, 2022

Our last update of 2022 is a consequential one, as due to @LAFC's thrilling MLS Cup victory, Los Angeles has just barely edged ahead of Tampa Bay and taken the top spot in the Champ Score rankings. The razor tight margin will be tested in just a few short months as Tampa Bay and LA teams both try to accumulate more points with a deep run in the NFL playoffs.

The @Astros have won another WS in this incredible 6-year run and rocketed Houston all the way to #4 in the ranking of top sports cities. I don't know if the rest of the Houston teams will be good enough, soon enough, to rise HOU any higher, but top 5 still a great achievement!

Congrats to the @Avalanche for their first Stanley Cup in over 20 years! Great series and great run. Though the @TBLightning did not win the Cup this year, by making the finals they were able to get enough points to overtake LA and return Tampa to the #1 spot among sports cities.

The @Warriors have won the NBA Finals, and with it given San Francisco its first title since 2014 (remember: prior GSW wins were in Oakland). Boston remains as the #3 champ city, and with this Final's loss missed a huge opportunity to close the gap between #2 LA or #1 Tampa.
