Do you agree with this list? I think it's pretty dead on with Pittsburgh, Boston, Buffalo, and Green Bay at the top. I was surprised not to see Dallas fans up there.


Columbus, Boston, Buffalo & Pittsburgh Top US Sports Cities

"Two-thirds (66%) of adults in Columbus, Ohio are avid sports fans, making the city the #1 sports town in America, according to (pdf) a recent analysis from Scarborough Sports Marketing.
Boston, Buffalo and Pittsburgh round out the top four sports markets. Nearly two-thirds (64%) of Boston adults are avid sports fans, as are 63% of those in Buffalo and Pittsburgh."

The Bills dominate Buffalo, with 66% of its residents reporting they are Bills fans. Based on percent of the market, Buffalo also is home to Sabres, the NHL team with the largest home-city fan base in the country: 59% of Buffalo adults are Sabres fans.
In Pittsburgh, the Steelers are most prominent, with 75% of Pittsburgh adults saying they are fans. Based on percent of the market, the Steelers command the second-largest local fan base of any team in the country.
The Green Bay Packers have the highest percentage (81%) of fans of a single team and rank as the sports team with the most concentrated home-city fan base in the country.
“Green Bay is a stand-out sports town. Almost the entire market is fans of the Packers, and half are fans of the University of Wisconsin Badgers football team,” Goldberg said. “This illustrates that a city does not ne

I'm from Buffalo and it's no surprise the Sabres are on there - or the Bills for that matter. I see that goddamn Sabre slug logo at least 20234324 times a day.

I know Pittsburgh for a fact loves their Steelers and Columbus loves their Buckeyes!

Jacksonville is having serious trouble with the Jags. No other sports in the area.

San Antonio really hard core about the Spurs and UT football. You can say the same for the Broncos in Denver.

Denver can make a strong case! We set EVERY attendance record there is in Baseball! The Avs in hockey sold out for like 8-10 years straight and beat the Toronto streak. The Broncos have sold out every game I can remember, and still have people on the waiting list! The Nuggets are hit and miss lately. But as far as teams go, NO ONE is playing better than Denver as a whole right now! Nuggets 4-0, Broncos 6-1, and the Avs were 10-1-2 last I checked! That is 20-2-1 overall. I do not think any other city comes close to that right now!
