KC Royals: Nominee in the FanSided Fandom 250 Rankings

Fans of the KC Royals should be pumped! Our beloved team was announced as a Fandom 250 Nominee By FanSided.

After leading Major League Baseball in TV ratings for the second consecutive year, KC Royals fans are finally getting their due.

The fan base that flooded the Kansas City-metro area with more than 800,000 people for the Royals’ 2015 World Series championship parade has been nominated for FanSided’s Fandom 250.

What is the Fandom 250, you ask?

It’s FanSided’s ranking of the top 250 fan bases in the world in not just sports but entertainment, politics and pop culture.

Sure, Royals fans are some of the best in baseball, but how do they compare to the football fanatics in Green Bay? Or the Cameron Crazies at Duke? Or even the loyal legion of “Walking Dead” followers?

Yes, this his hugely subjective, speculative and we hope a lot of fun.

Here’s the list of the nine other fan bases nominated along with the True Blue Crew:

FanSided is releasing a new batch of 10 nominees every day now until Dec. 6, when the final rankings of the top 250 fan bases will be announced.

Here’s the official FanSided press release nominating Royals fans as one of the best in the business.
