The League Rank is a calculation that measures North America’s professional Sports League’s Impact. Europe’s professional Leagues were left out due to its monolithic devotion to Association Football (Soccer). In contrast, North America has a vibrant and diverse professional sports ecosystem.
The Rank is a sum based on Attendance, both Total per-season Attendance and Average per-game Attendance. It is a fair and equitable way to measure League Impact since not all Leagues or Sports have access to the Television Networks.
Tier 1 Leagues are the Major Sports Leagues while Tier 2 and lower Leagues are the Minor Sports Leagues.
League Impact = Total Attendance + Average Attendance
