What NFL Fans Are The Most Engaged?

What NFL Fans Are The Most Engaged?
Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

There aren’t many NFL franchises with the blend of history and hometown pride that the Denver Broncos have generated along the Front Range since launching as an AFL club in 1960, with three Super Bowl championships and eight AFC titles to their name and countless fans between the Four Corners region and the extended Rocky Mountain sprawl.  

That region-wide support is one of the main reasons why the Broncos are listed among the NFL’s leaders in fan engagement, ranking ninth overall alongside the Las Vegas Raiders in the 32-team league.  

Based on game day attendance at Empower Field at Mile High, along with NFL fan experience scores and fan base rankings at large, we know that Denver’s fans are among the most committed of any team in the NFL.  

The NFL season is just months away across Colorado betting apps. With that in mind, BetColorado.com wanted to measure and rank the levels of engagement and dedication for each NFL fan base. Then, we ranked all 32 teams from most to least engaged. We factored in social media following, stadium attendance compared to stadium capacity, and overall fan experience.
