Steelers fans are chosen for Fandom 250

The Steelers have a long and storied franchise and one of the most passionate fan-bases ever.

There’s no denying that Steelers Nation is large and proud. Whether we’re filling up opposing teams’ stadiums or proudly displaying our Terrible Towels on landmarks around the globe we make our presence known.

The FanSided Network was built on fans. It’s a site for fans by fans and so we’re celebrating the most enthusiastic fan bases. It’s like the Fortune 500 list but for fans. And they’re ranking every type of fans from sports teams to Star Wars and everything in between.

FanSided will announce names of fanbases each week leading up to their naming of the best Fandom in the world. It’s got to be the Steelers fans, right?

Sure there are fierce fans of the Cowboys and Raiders but no one shows up for their team like Steelers fans. We are everywhere. Go to any city in America and you’ll find a Steeler bar. Look at coverage of the Winter Olympics in Russia; you’ll spot a Terrible Towel in the crowd.

There are famous Steeler fans like Snoop Dogg, Seth Meyers, Wiz Khalifa, Joe Manganiello and his bride Sofia Vergara.

Steeler fans are special because we are home grown. We’re born and raised bleeding Black & Gold. I come from a long line of Steeler fans and the line continues. From Terry Bradshaw to Ben Roethlisberger the Steelers no doubt have the best fans in the world.
