The Strongest Big Four Fan Bases in 2013

As we look back at the world of professional sports in 2013, TicketCity’s newest study ranks the big four fan bases that had the biggest impact last year.  Using an algorithm based on  social media metrics, game attendance and ticket demand we’ve identified the MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL fan bases that were the most active and most vocal in 2013, whether they were at the game or supporting their team on social media.

The data used in the study is based on the 2013 season, with data for NHL accounting for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. To control for factors that influence ticket prices, including total number of games played & stadium size, average ticket price was scored based on the league average.

Without further ado, here are the Top 10 Strongest Big Four Fan Bases in 2013.  The full ranking of every team can be found here.  Do you agree with where your favorite team stacked up? Do the Lakers really belong at the top? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
