ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) - A list ranking the best sports cities for fans has ranked St. Louis tenth in the 'large city' category. 

The recently released list was compiled by the financial social media website Wallethub. When determining their rankings, Wallethub took into account the performances of the city's teams, the local sports bar scene, average ticket prices and the attendance rates of each team. 

Breaking down the data even further reveals that St. Louis is the No. 1 city for baseball fans and the No. 3 city for hockey fans. However, it was ranked No. 20 for football fans (out of 32 NFL teams). 

Wallethub had three rankings, one for large, midsize and small cities. Among the 341 total cities, St. Louis was ranked No. 12 overall.
