Every week, TicketForce brings you news on one of four industries: racing, sports, theatre, or music. This week’s #SportsWrap reports the recently released ranking of the best fans in the NFL.
Forbes magazine recently ranked the nest NFL fan bases to determine which NFL teams really do have the best fans. To no surprise of anyone familiar with football the Green Bay Packers took the top spot as having the best fans, but why?
Forbes devised a formula, looking at various factors, to determine where teams would be ranked. This formula used factors like attendance to home games, watching their teams on TV, or how much merchandise teams sold. The report found that a staggering 84% of adults in Green Bay are Packers fans. So why are they the best fans. Forbes wrote “little else goes on there (in Northeast Wisconsin) to compete for their attention,” so it seems that watching the games is just about all there is to do.
