Top 10 U.S. Cities With the Most Sports Championships

Sunday, we’ll see a rematch of the 2007 Super Bowl as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots try to get revenge against Eli Manning and the Giants after they ruined the Patriots’ attempt at a perfect season. Either way, fans in Boston and New York don’t have much to complain about: Their teams have won more major sports championships than any other American cities. By their standards, New York is in a bit of a drought, having not won a championship since the Yankees took home the World Series trophy in 2009. Boston added to its trophy case with the Bruins’ Stanley Cup win in June. Here’s how the rest of America’s cities stack up in Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, and Major League Soccer history.

The Cardinals’ unexpected World Series run last year gave fans in St. Louis plenty to cheer about. Albert Pujols helped the team to its 11th World Series win before bolting for the sunny Anaheim, Calif., weather. Their most impressive run came in the early 1940s, when sluggers Stan Musial and Enos Slaughter led the team to three championships between 1942 and 1946. The Rams, led by quarterback Kurt Warner and running back Marshall Faulk, won the city’s only Super Bowl championship in 1999. The St. Louis Hawks won an NBA championship in 1958 before the team moved to Atlanta in 1968. The Blues have lost in the Stanley Cup Finals three times, without ever winning the trophy.
