Minnesota Vikings nominated for FanSided’s Fandom 250

The Minnesota Vikings have been nominated for inclusion in FanSided’s Fandom 250, a ranking of all the best groups of fans among a wide variety of topics.

Everybody loves ranking things. Whether it is trying to find out who the best sports team is in the league, the best players at each position, or even what kind of fruits taste the best, lists are everywhere on the internet and Minnesota Vikings fans have seen a lot of them

However, FanSided’s new list called the Fandom 250 will be one of the most prestigious rankings ever compiled. Imagine trying to decide which team in the NFL has the best fans, but then adding in teams from other sports, and sprinkling in television shows, movies, comics, fashion, and more into the mix.

This is what makes the Fandom 250 so unique and interesting. Thankfully, the Minnesota Vikings are nominated to be included in the rankings and are set to take on a very diverse set of nominees in today’s list.

Here’s the full list of nominees for November 11th as shared on the official FanSided website:

  • Prada
  • Louis Vuitton
  • Channel
  • Toronto Maple Leafs
  • Montreal Canadiens
  • Boston Bruins
  • Cleveland Browns
  • Washington Redskins
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • Chicago Bears

Vikings fans deserve to make this list because the team has such a passionate group of followers. Superfan groups like the VWOPurple Pimps, and the other groups have become iconic parts of the team, and their commitment to charity and their communities make them even more amazing.

But even Minnesota Vikings fans without association to fan groups are some of the most passionate and most knowledgeable fans on the planet, and well deserving of a spot on the Fandom 250.

The final FanSided Fandom 250 rankings will be revealed on December 6, 2016. Where should the Minnesota Vikings be ranked and what do you think makes fans of the team so unique compared to other groups? Leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments below!
