Super Bowl LII: Are More Eagles Fans Attending Than Patriots Fans?

Super Bowl LIISuper Bowl LII—between the AFC’s New England Patriots and the NFC’s Philadelphia Eagles—kicks off in a few hours. The game is in Minneapolis, so Allianz Global Assistance wondered which fanbase is expected to travel to the host city in greater numbers. The answer? Eagles fans, it looks like!

A review of roundtrip flight bookings into Minneapolis arriving February 1-4 and returning February 5-6 revealed that 15% of travelers to Minneapolis are flying in (or have already flown in) from Philadelphia. Just 10%, meanwhile, are coming from Boston. Predictably, the two cities being represented in the game took the top two slots on the larger list of Minneapolis travelers, which is here:

As for how long Super Bowl LII attendees will stay, the flight data showed that 46% will stay for three nights, while 22% will stay for two or four nights. Another 6% will make it five, and 5% will head home after a single night.

“The Super Bowl is a major event for Americans, and with high turnout of travelers from Philadelphia and Boston, we anticipate the stadium to be full of fans from both teams,” said Daniel Durazo, director of communications at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “Regardless of which team you’re rooting for, purchasing the right travel insurance policy can protect your trip from unforeseen or unexpected events.”
