Vivid Seats and opendorse have partnered to create a data–driven exploration of NFL team and player popularity. Explore the map and have some fun.   

From hash marks to hashtags, America loves its football.  

While a passion for pigskin is a hallmark of our country, different teams are more popular from one region to the next; different players, more well-known to fans viewing on a phone screen than a TV screen. 

As the football season is set to kick off, Vivid Seats teamed up with opendorse, the social publishing platform that helps over 7,000 athletes share content on social, to explore trends in football team and player popularity across the country. 

The interactive map below highlights the most popular team by U.S. county, according to 2018 Vivid Seats ticket data. Each team is also represented by its most impactful player on social media, based on opendorse’s proprietary insights. 

Additionally, explore rival fan base “borders” within the map to see the lines that divide the Bears and Packers, the Saints and Cowboys, and more.
