Heat maps provide an interesting look at A’s/Giants and 49ers/Raiders territories

Oct 8, 2013, 1:11 PM PDT

The Bay Area features a few very divided fan bases. The A’s/Giants and 49ers/Raiders share parts of the Bay Area, but these heat maps based on Facebook likes paint an interesting picture about their actual territory.

The maps were created by monitoring the cumulative number of people who like the respective pages of the Oakland Athletics, San Francisco Giants, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers. The darkest spots on the map represent the highest amount of likes. Based on the data, it’s pretty clear the San Francisco teams are dominating the market.

Highest percentage of fans per city:
A’s: Elmira
Giants: Daly City
Raiders: Fulton
49ers: Pacifica
