The English Premier League is indisputably one of the most followed leagues around the world with fan bases ranging in the millions across the globe. Stroll down a street in Dubai or Bangalore or Koh Samui, and the one common aspect that ties them together is someone wearing the top of either Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea or Liverpool football clubs.
A new complex but easy-on-the-eye visualization by Kris Wongsuphasawat constructed via Twitter shows the global support for each of league’s 20 teams, based on the location of followers from each of the 20 Twitter accounts.
At first glance, it looks like Arsenal (yellow) and Chelsea (blue) seem to dominate in twitter based fan presence across the globe. Manchester United (red) also seems to be a club to follow in India.
