The most popular team

Last week we had a look at the leagues that interest you as Forza Football users the most.

Now we would like to share some data about which teams you showed the most interest in during the period of August 15th to September 30th 2016.

Let's start off with the nine favourite teams among the Forza Football users globally:

1) Manchester United
2) Barcelona
3) Juventus
4) Real Madrid
5) Manchester City
6) AC Milan
7) Liverpool
8) Chelsea
9) Inter Milan

Note 1: We have only counted one club team per unique user, his/her presumed favourite team.
Note 2: We have only counted the teams’ matches in the local leagues.
Note 3: The top three teams on the overall chart have quite a big lead while it is pretty close between the five teams in the bottom.

Now let's have a look at the standing in different countries around the world. (Give us a shout on Twitter or Facebook if you would like more info on your particular country.)
