2015-NFL-FAN-EQUITYCHICAGO — Chicago Bears fans know they’re some of football’s best and most dedicated, but now there’s data to back up that claim.

Bears fans ranked sixth in the NFL in a study by Emory Sports Marketing Analytics to determine which team has the “best” fans.

The study took into account 15 years of data on team performance, ticket prices, market populations, median incomes and multiple other factors to measure whose fan-base was the most “avid, engaged, passionate and supportive.” An explanation of study’s methodology can be found here.

The Dallas Cowboys’ fans topped the list, and bringing up the rear were the lukewarm Miami Dolphins.
