Blues Rank High in Fan Satisfaction

by Staff Writer / St. Louis Blues
According to ESPN the Magazine’s Ultimate Standings report, the St. Louis Blues rank in the Top 10 professional sports franchises when it comes to paying back fans for their investment of time, money and passion.


The Blues were one of five NHL teams to make the Top 10 list: the Carolina Hurricanes, Detroit Red Wings, Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins also are included in the Top 10.

The report was the result of exclusive and original analysis by ESPN The Magazine and the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center, combined with fan feedback data gathered by the consulting firm Maddock Douglas, ESPN.com and GMI NetReflector. More than 50,000 responses were collected. The analysis is used to determine how franchises establish and maintain the greatest overall reward for their fans.

The complete list will be available in the current issue of ESPN The Magazine, which will hit newsstands on Friday, July 3.
