Title: Stadiums dominated by fans of the visiting team
Post by: KCRoadFan on May 19, 2022, 04:21:00 PM
With the Orioles hosting the Yankees today, I thought about how the Yankees - and also the Red Sox - often have a lot of their fans at Camden Yards whenever their teams visit Baltimore. (Listening to the game on the radio, I heard a huge cheer as the Yankees tied the game in the ninth, even though the game is in Baltimore.)

That led me to wonder: what other teams are known for playing host to lots of visiting-team fans? I know that in college football, Vanderbilt largely seems to exist as a way for fans of the other SEC teams to spend a fall weekend partying it up in Nashville and (likely) seeing their team win. Elsewhere, Indiana draws a lot of Ohio State fans when the Buckeyes come to visit, and the same was true of Baylor whenever Texas/A&M/Tech came to town - at least until Baylor became a good team.

In the NFL, the Los Angeles Chargers appear to have that sort of reputation. What other teams throughout the country, in whichever league, are known for having fans of the opposing team fill their stadium (whether it be visiting-team fans in general, or those of a particular opponent)? I look forward to hearing more!

I know Nats Park used to be full of Phillies fans when they came to town, but I'm not sure if that's still the case.

Unless they're doing well, NHL teams in the Sun Belt, particularly the team formerly known as the Atlanta Thrashers, although I don't know if those are fans specifically traveling for the game, or if they just happen to be in town and can see a game for 1/5 the cost of attending a game in their home town.

A little over ten years ago, IU played a football game against Penn State at FedExField, and the crowd was mainly Penn State fans.

If one of the White Sox/Cubs is very good and the other very bad, the good team's fans will dominate the opposing stadium.

At one point, the Nashville Predators required an in-state address to purchase tickets for home games against the BlackHawks due to being overrun by Chicago fans. Not sure if that's still a policy.

I'm not a Tigers fan but I really don't hate them even though they are a divisional rival of the White Sox who I am a fan of. My dad is a Tigers fan though and about 10 years ago I went with him to Cleveland for a Tigers-Indians game. We got tickets right behind the first base dugout and had a few more people with us. I was sitting in a section dominated by Tigers fans who started a LETS GO TIGERS chant in Cleveland. I thought it was hilarious how the Tigers fans took over the ballpark so I joined in lol. Cleveland fans of course were booing and chanting LETS GO TRIBE but the Tigers fans in that section dominated it so much that when I got home to Saginaw later that night and was watching the encore of the game on tv I remembered what inning it was in and sure enough could hear the LETS GO TIGERS chants I was a part of earlier that day. Even the Tigers announcers commented on it.

I can remember when Cleveland fans had that sellout streak going and winning the division Cleveland fans would flock to Detroit.

The Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles fans travel real well. A few "travel agencies" developed, mostly dedicated to Eagles road trips, that will buy several hundred tickets (at least) and fans scoop them up, travelling to the away games.

When the Brewers were in the AL, County Stadium was Comiskey North when they played the White Sox.  The only real exception I can think of was the "Harvey's Wallbangers" era in the early 1980s.  They had a good local following in that era, and made it to the Series in 1982.

In the Cardinals' case, that's true if they're playing an NFC West rival or an NFC North team (Bears, Packers, Vikings, Lions).

Chase Field has this issue (and the Diamondbacks jack up ticket prices accordingly) when the Cubs, Dodgers, or Giants are in town.  The other teams, not so much.

The Coyotes?  They draw more Blackhaws, Red Wings, and Blues fans, but overall, the Coyotes don't have much of a fan base to begin with.  Now that they're out of the hockey fan-challenged west side, that might change.

The Rangers charge premium ticket prices whenever the Yankees and Red Sox come to town for their one series a year.

Cowboys games are road-heavy when a big national draw like the Steelers or Packers visit. Even the NFC East home games have a strong road presence, because Cowboys ticketholders put their seats on the secondary market and make bank.

In recent years, many NFL teams started requiring fans who are buying tickets to their home games v. the Green Bay Packers to also buy those seats to a pre-season game because the Packers travel so well, taking over the other teams' home stadia on road games.

That was fairly normal for the St Louis Rams. I went to a Packers game there where it was almost entirely Packers fans. The next week my boss who was a Steelers fan also experienced that. The Rams weren't very popular except those few Greatest Show on Turf years.

I have been to Cowboys-Packers and Cowboys-Redski....Commanders at AT&T.  They are both pretty split, but the Packers are better.  It is the same at FedEx for Cowboys-Commanders because, it was explained to me, DC has a lot of Cowboys fans. 

That one year (2007 maybe) that the Longhorns went to the lowly Sun Bowl to play UTEP, the Sun Bowl was rockin with Texas fans.  I was going to make the drive El Paso, but I had to work that weekend.  Thing was, there were no more single tickets left, so you had to buy season tickets, and there were many Longhorn fans out there buying UTEP season tickets just to go to the game Texas was there.

They don't play regularly anymore, but when Colorado was still in the Big 12, they used to call the CU Event Center 'Allen Fieldhouse West' because there were so many KU fans from western Kansas where Boulder was closer than Lawrence. It would be 75% KU fans at least.

The most obvious stadium is TIAA Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars.  I’m thinking the last time that place ever sold out was Super Bowl XXXIX, which was 17 years ago.

As for the Nashville Predators, they generally have good home crowds all around.  I think many of the Blackhawk fans are likely Nashville-area residents but Chicagoland transplants.  I should know, as a good chunk of my HS graduating class way back in 1990-something were Cubs and/or Bears fans (long before Nashville attracted any pro sports franchises).

Vanderbilt has been jacking up the prices of Kentucky home basketball games for many years, but they still end up with just about an even split of fans it seems.  My brothers and I (Kentucky fans) once went to a game with some friends who were loyal Vandy fans.  Vandy actually won that game, and we let them gloat because they deserved to.  Anyway, I’m not aware of Vandy raising the prices of the football tickets for home games versus Kentucky or Tennessee or other SEC teams whose fans like to travel, but I’m sure they probably ought to do it if they don’t already.

Want to follow this up: most Dolphins games, the biggest fan base to show up are seats.

The current park was never called Milwaukee County Stadium.  It was Miller Park from Day One until it became American Family Field last year. 

Milwaukee County Stadium was the old park.  It was torn down right before Miller Park opened for the 2001 season.

I can get the emotional attachment to a stadium's name when a stadium was originally named after a person, or geographical feature, and the naming rights get sold. Like selling the naming rights to Lambeau Field would be sacrelige and would never fly. But the Brewers stadium never had a non-corporate name. Miller Park was a fitting name, as it was bought by the largest brewery in a city known for brewing. But Miller decided to not renew the naming rights, and American Family Insurance bought the naming rights instead. Is it the best name? No. I'd prefer something more related to baseball or the city. But it is what it is: Large corporate sponsors throwing their name on a stadium for money.

Now calling the stadium Wrigley North? Aw hell naw!

In South Carolina, Gamecock games whenever they play at Williams-Brice against Clemson or any SEC East team other than Kentucky or Vandy are filled with the opponent's fans.

There's years where half the crowd is Clemson fans at that game. Georgia and Tennessee usually bring 10,000+ fans, sometimes more.

I have season tickets to College of Charleston basketball games; when we hosted UNC this year, who has a big fan base around here, I'd say 1/3 of my home arena (which seats 5,100) was filled with UNC fans.

We hosted Texas in baseball this year and more than 40% of the stadium (1,600 fans) were rooting for the Longhorns.

Nebraska, Dayton, and St. Bonaventure have big followings no matter where you go too. We have the Charleston Classic here and the years the latter two were in it, the arena was filled up with their fans even though they are small schools.

Bonaventure even brought students down to Charleston. Nebraska filled up half our stadium for a February baseball series a few years back.

During Rivalry Week in college football (and also when arch-rivals meet in basketball), usually the road team's fans will fill at least half of its opponent's stadium. I can't tell you how many times I had to deal with USC fans taking over UCLA's stadium whenever their teams met; I always thought they were very obnoxious in the same way that Red Sox fans think of the Yankees (or Giants fans of the Dodgers).

Packers and Steelers are good as making road games sound like home games with the strong following they have.

Do wish as a Brewers fan that Brewers/Cubs games didn't sound like road games......but it's also cheaper for Cubs fans to get tickets in Milwaukee and have way less a headache making the drive.

Considering the fans that come on the road are more obnoxious than the ones in their home stadium.  When at Wrigley the Cubs fans there don't act like every hit or home run is a world series winner.  Been to enough Brewers/Cubs games at Miller Park(was still named that at last time I saw one of those games) where whether Cubs are up or down by ten runs anything positive the Cubs do is as exciting as a walkoff. Seems to be just Cubs fans do that as Bulls, White Sox, and Bears fans don't at like this(although saw a White Sox and Cubs fan fight each other outside of Miller Park years ago after Brewers Cubs game).

I've never chanted "New York" sucks, especially in a stadium where 3-5K of the people there are New Yorkers coming to Fenway to help my region's economy.

Last time the Yankees came to Fenway, I was a little amazed at how many Yankees fans were there compared to prior years. It was like a ton of Sox fans just unloaded them on StubHub or something.

Enough there to start their classless "Boston Sucks" chant, all the while paying hundreds and thousands to the coffers of the city they are claiming sucks.

Do you ever engage in “Yankees Suck” chants? I don’t see any difference between them (though I’m a fan of a different AL East team and thus root against both teams equally).

Also, yes, the old stadium name use by fans is intentional.
Your Team Sucks.

Orioles fans 🤝 Yankees fans

Hating Joey Bats and the Red Sox
I can hear the "Dodgers suck" chants when the Giant fans visit Dodger Stadium, and "Giants suck" by Dodger fans in San Francisco. If you're a fan of another NL West team, you hate both teams the same way.

Boston sucks.
That's just the standard chant sorry
