Fandom: Ranking the Top 30 Sports Cities by Fan Devotion

All teams and cities think their fans are best.

Realistically though, what cities have the most loyal and most dedicated fans?

I figured I would give this topic a shot, with a few rules:

  • I'm considering major metropolitan areas as a single city (e.g. the Bay Area includes San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose teams).
  • I'm also only counting cities with a minimum of two teams from the big four professional sports, so my many apologies to the Green Bay faithful.
  • This list is not trying to rank cities based on their success, but rather a city's fan devotion and loyalty to its home teams.  
  • This list is primarily composed of American teams, but I'll throw Toronto in for kicks.

Read my disclaimer:

I do not mean this as any disrespect to any city or a particular team. I realize every team has a number of diehard fans that may be offended.

Remember, I do not mean this as a dig at a city in particular.

With all potential hard feelings aside, let us have a look.
