NEW YORK GIANT FANS RANKED FOURTH-BEST IN NFL
The widespread debate over which NFL franchise has the strongest following may have come to an end with TicketCity releasing its first annual “most engaged fan base” rankings earlier this week.
The rankings, which feature the New York Giants at No. 4, are “based on an algorithm designed to identify the fan bases that engage the most frequently with their team both online and offline.”
Below are the seven key metrics TicketCity used to evaluate fan engagement:
-Average home game ticket price (10)
-Average home attendance (10)
-Percentage of stadium capacity filled at home games (10)
-Average ticket price (5)
-Average total attendance, all games (5)
-Facebook likes (3)
-Twitter following (3)
Each of the seven categories are weighted differently, which can be seen in parenthesis.
The Giants also landed in the top five in three other major categories: highest average home attendance (No. 2 – 80,495 fans), highest average total attendance (No. 2 – 76,870 fans) and average ticket price (No. 5 – $191).
Here’s how all 32 NFL teams stacked up:
1. Dallas Cowboys, 2. New England Patriots, 3. Green Bay Packers, 4. New York Giants, 5. Pittsburgh Steelers, 6. Chicago Bears, 7. Denver Broncos, 8. New Orleans Saints, 9. Houston Texans, 10. Philadelphia Eagles, 11. Baltimore Ravens, 12. San Francisco 49ers, 13. Washington Redskins, 14. Seattle Seahawks, 15. New York Jets, 16. Atlanta Falcons, 17. Indianapolis Colts, 18. Carolina Panthers, 19. Tennessee Titans, 20. Detriot Lions, 21. Minnesota Vikings, 22. Arizona Cardinals, 23. San Diego Chargers, 24. Buffalo Bills, 25. Cincinatti Bengals, 26. Celvland Browns, 27. Oakland Raiders, 28. Jacksonville Jaguars, 29. Miami Dolphins, 30. Kansas City Chiefs, 31. St. Louis Rams, 32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
“I think it is [realistic for me to be back for the Dallas game]. That’s what I expect too. Obviously I’m going to follow the doctor’s orders and, like you said, that’s why we’ve got to take it week by week and see how it’s progressing. It’s kind of one of those annoying things that you’ve got to let go for a little bit, but I’m one of those guys that likes to work through this. I just want to be ready for my team.” -C David Baas
