Abstract

The goal of this project was to find a method to determine the worthiness of markets having a professional sports franchise for Football, Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, and Hockey. We utilized metrics that factored in both the size of as well as the fan interest of the market to come up with a final score that incorporated both. This final score revealed the worthiness of each market as well as displayed the positive effect that the fan interest plays on the total worthiness.
