Football Fandom End of Season Awards
For most of us, football is an obsession. But just how much of our lives does football take up, and which teams fans are the most football obsessed?
The phrase glory-supporter seems to be thrown at fans of big teams as an insult – however this data seems to suggest that supporting a team might just make you a more loyal fan.
'Support your local team' is thrown around in football, but are local fans really more loyal? Do they watch as much football? Do they go to more games?
Given that so much is made about supporting your local team, it seems that out of town fans are much more likely to be loyal to their team. Whilst living locally means you are 4x more likely to watch games, a high proportion of out of town fans still make the trip.
Every football fan has got into a heated debate about what makes a 'true fan' and who is a 'glory supporter'. What do you think is the main reason for supporting a club? We find out.
Interestingly Chelsea (44%) and Man City (42%) are middle of the pack, though are often talked about most as being glory supporters, when you are more likely to support Leeds or Spurs for that reason.
Which teams fans love to splash the cash? Which group of fans is most likely to watch illegal streams? Find out below!
