The most searched US sports teams around the world 

  • The Golden State Warriors are the most-searched US sports team in 64 countries around the world 
  • The Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks take second and third, respectively 
  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys also make their way into the top ten 

The Golden State Warriors are the most searched US sports team around the world, new research has revealed. 

The study by odds comparison experts Sidelines.io analyzed monthly average number of searches for the full name of each team in the NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB, and MLS in every country to see which teams came out on top. 

It found that the Golden State Warriors are the most popular in 64 countries. The most searches per month came from Brazil with more than 270,000 on average, the Philippines with more than 216,000 and India with more than 65,000 searches a month. This also made them the most popular NBA team across the world as well. The Warriors’ strong season in the Western Conference has sparked an interest from NBA fans worldwide. 

The Chicago Bulls came in second place, with the NBA Eastern conference team being the most searched in 16 countries. The most searches came from Poland with more than 18,000 a month, Hungary with more than 3,800 searches and Romania with more than 3,600. The Bulls currently have a sponsorship running with Polish financial company Cinkciarz.pl which has drawn some attention for the team from the Central European nation.

Coming in third is the Milwaukee Bucks with the most searches in 14 countries worldwide. The most searches came from Greece with 27,000 searches every month on average, the Netherlands with 24,000 a month and Switzerland with 10,000 monthly searches. The influence of Greek national Giannis Antetokounmpo is clear here, with many Greek NBA fans interested in the Wisconsin based team as a result.  

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in fourth place, the most popular NFL team with top searches in 11 countries. The Buccaneers were the most popular team in Fiji with more than 450 searches a month, Papua New Guinea with more than 300 searches and American Samoa with more than 250 searches a month.

Placing in sixth place is the Dallas Cowboys with seven countries searching the NFL team the most. The Cowboys were found to be the most popular sports team in the entire US with more than 5,500,000 searches a month, as well as in Mexico with 148,000 monthly searches.  

The most searched MLB team across the world was found to be the Boston Red Sox, seeing lots of popularity in Central America with more than 30,000 searches in the Dominican Republic every month, more than 14,000 in Nicaragua and more than 9,700 in Panama. 

The Montreal Canadiens topped the list of NHL teams with three countries more interested in the team. These nations were Russia with more than 5,200 searches a month, and Moldova with more than 150 searches every month. 

Chicago Fire FC and Real Salt Lake were the only two MLS teams to top the searches in a country, with Real Salt Lake receiving more than 2,000 searches in Guatemala and Chicago Fire receiving more than 70 searches monthly searches in Malawi. 

Commenting on the findings, a spokesperson from Sidelines.io said: “It’s fascinating to see the influence of US Sports worldwide from this list, but also the influence of the NBA, with more than half of the teams in the top ten being part of the league. It’s also interesting to see the influence of specific players, with entire countries garnering an interest for a team that features players from their home nation.”
