NFL on social media

While the Cowboys lead the way on Facebook, over on Twitter, the New England Patriots have the largest following, with 4.28 million accounts subscribed to their feed. The Jacksonville Jaguars, meanwhile, are bringing up the rear with just 630 thousand followers on the social media site. YouTube is also a great way for NFL franchises to engage with their fans by posting behind-the-scenes videos and match highlights. The Cleveland Browns lead the way on the video sharing site, having amassed over 118 thousand subscribers. The Browns page includes daily podcasts, footage from press conferences, and a Browns All Access series.

The cost of being an NFL fan

Following your favorite team on social media is one thing, but it does not compare to the atmosphere of being at a live game. However, while football is loved across America, being a fan of the sport does not come cheap. The average cost for a family of four to enjoy a home game in the NFL, including refreshments and merchandise, came to a staggering 536 U.S. dollars in 2018. This marks an increase of almost 200 U.S. dollars on the figure from 2006. Fans of the Los Angeles Chargers have to dig the deepest by far, as the average cost for a fan of the franchise stood at over 953 U.S. dollars in 2018. On the other end of the spectrum, fans of the Cleveland Browns could enjoy a family day out for a comparatively cheap 381 U.S. dollars.
