In Other News: Panthers Fans Have More ‘Friends’ Than Broncos Fans

| February 5, 2016


Analysts at Facebook looked at all the people in the U.S. who’ve “liked” just one NFL team on Facebook. They figured anyone who’s liked two or more teams isn’t really a “die-hard” fan of any of them.

And they found that Carolina Panthers fans have over 20% more friends than Broncos fans. Fans of the Panthers average just over 500 Facebook friends, and Broncos fans have just under 400. What does this mean for the game? We have no clue.

Saints fans have the most, with over 600 friends on average. The rest of the top five are Falcons, Panthers, Eagles, and Titans fans.

Cardinals fans came in LAST, with just over 350 friends on average. The rest of the bottom five are Seahawks, Broncos, Packers, and 49ers fans.

They also wanted to know which Super Bowl team people are rooting for in different cities. So they looked at which fan bases were most likely to be friends with each OTHER.

And the top five cities rooting for the Broncos that AREN’T Denver are: Houston, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, and Phoenix.

The top five cities rooting for the Panthers outside North Carolina are New York, Jacksonville, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Miami.
