Five NWSL clubs were among the top 10 professional sports teams with the highest cross-platform social media engagement rates from Oct. 19-25.
Angel City FC, the league’s newest expansion team, led the way with a 3.27% engagement rate — it was previously unranked. The engagement growth came after a big announcement early in the week confirming its name, badge and the addition of a slew of high-profile investors to its ownership group.
Portland Thorns FC, previously No. 12, and the North Carolina Courage ranked No. 4 and 5 on the list with engagement rates of 1.51% and 1.40%, respectively — the Courage were previously unranked. The Houston Dash, ranked eighth last week, clocked in at No. 7 with a 1.12% engagement rate. The Chicago Red Stars, previously unranked, finished ninth with a 1.07% engagement rate.
