Definitive proof the 49ers are ‘America’s team’

I generally find infographics from PR companies to be pretty lame. It’s often cherry-picked data on topics that just don’t interest me.

Today, I have an exception!

A company called Custom Ink sponsored a study comparing Google search interest data for every NFL team to determine the non-local favorite of each state (h/t theScore). After crunching the numbers, the San Francisco 49ers came away as the most popular out-of-state team! They are the most popular team in seven states, including Hawaii, Washington, Idaho, Texas, Louisiana, New York, and Vermont.

We always hear about the Dallas Cowboys being “America’s team,” but clearly we now have definitive proof the 49ers are America’s team!
