If your perfect idea of retirement involves lots of tailgating, you’re in luck. Bankrate has tapped its database to find cities that are not just good for retirees, but also for anyone who can’t get enough of America’s most popular sport.

Here’s how we came up with our 10 best football cities for retirement. First, we filtered our database of nearly 200 cities to focus on just those cities with at least one college or professional football team. Each city received points according to the number of teams that played there, and they were ranked based on other measurements including cost of living, crime rate, well-being, walkability, tax rates, weather, wellness and health care quality.

With all that factored in, we count down to the best retirement city for football fans.
