We came at you with the two Emory Students and their concrete way to figure out the most loyal NFL fans out their.  Ticketcity.com has come out with another look at the most engaging fans in the NFL.

This is ticketcity’s first listing of the most engaging NFL fan bases and is based on the 2012 season.  This is how they came up with it.


Fan engagement is evaluated in terms of the following metrics. The data is based on the 2012 season. Each metric was given a corresponding weight, listed in bold, which was determined based on how indicative the metric is of fan activity. For example, home attendance, home capacity and average home ticket price are weighted higher because they are a better direct reflection of home team behavior. Similarly, online metrics are not weighted as high as offline metrics because they reflect only the team-sanctioned social channel and do not account for other fan communities.

  • Average total attendance, all games (5)
  • Average home attendance (10)
  • Average ticket price (5)
  • Average home game ticket price (10)
  • Percentage of stadium capacity filled at home games (10)
