To determine which college basketball team has the best fan’s, we compiled the following data pieces:
- Average sold ticket price for the 2014-2015 regular season.
- Home game attendance as a percentage of stadium capacity.
- Number of Facebook fans (basketball specific account).
- Number of Twitter followers (basketball specific account).
- Merchandise sales ranking as provided by the Collegiate Licensing Company.
We calculated all these data points together, giving slightly more weight to attendance and ticket price, and then indexed them to create the Fan Score. Please feel free to email [email protected] with any questions.
