If you want to find a fan of the U.S. Men’s National Team, look westward, and closely, at Utah.
Salt Lake City has the seventh highest concentration of USMNT fans in the country, according to a study by customer management company Gigya. The study, determined by the amount of "likes" from each state on the U.S. Soccer Facebook page, found that four of the top 10 cities for U.S. Soccer fanhood are on the west coast.
Salt Lake was preceded by Seattle, Portland, New York City, Houston, Columbus and Los Angeles, with the largest overall state concentrations in California, Washington and Texas.
