Metro Area: Chicago, IL USA

About Chicago:

The Chicago metro area stretches across three states (Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin), but the sports teams are all located in Cook County. Even with a declining population, Chicago still maintains its reputation as a place where young professionals move to and cheer for the Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Fire, Sky, and White Sox. Stadium Scene is proud to call Chicago their "eastern" home.

Metro Population: 9.43 million
