Best Traveling NFL Fans in 2010
So what NFL team had the most rabid fans in 2010?
Before we tell you what the data shows, let’s be clear about what the data does NOT show. FanSnap is a ticket shopping-comparison site. We help fans compare tickets from 50+ sites to find the best deals on event tickets. As part of that free service, we know where fans are searching from. So, for example, if you’re in Wisconsin and you search for tickets to the Packers – Vikings game in Minnesota, we assume you’re a Packers fan. And, If you’re searching for the same game and you live in Minnesota, we assume you’re a Vikings fan.
This isn’t perfect. For example, Vikings fans live in Wisconsin and vice versa. But, because we can’t possibly know which team you’re a fan of, it’s the best available proxy.
We looked at searches by state for every game this season to determine which state is most actively looking for it’s team’s tickets. So for example, for the Packers – Vikings game in Minnesota, how many ticket searches came from Wisconsin? We then combined those results for every team’s regular season away games. Here’s which team’s fans travel best.
What’s interesting about this list is really the Jets and Bears should be at the top of this list. The packers numbers came almost entirely from the game at Minnesota. What seems clear from this data is the hottest Super Bowl ticket this year would likely have been a Jets – Bears matchup.
