Redfin Ranks the Best NFL Cities for Pregaming on Gameday

The List Kicks Off with Seattle, Denver and Green Bay

SEATTLE--()--Seattle, Denver and Green Bay are the best cities for NFL pregaming on gameday, according to the latest report by Redfin (, the next-generation real estate brokerage. Redfin examined several factors that make gameday a great experience for fans, including the Walk Score of each stadium, the number of nearby bars, fanbase ranking and crime rates in each NFL city. Redfin real estate agents played safety, weighing in on their cities’ gameday experiences to ensure the list was accurate and there were no Hail Marys.

The Seattle Seahawks earned the top seed, thanks to CenturyLink Field being located in Pioneer Square, a rebounding neighborhood with plenty of wine-and-dine options. The Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints finished out the top five. Perhaps most surprisingly, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in at number eight, due to the convenient downtown location of Raymond James Stadium and the nearby parks.

1 - Seattle, WA (Seahawks)
