Global Flames fan survey – results are in

Over the past couple weeks, the TWC team has collected responses to our survey asking Flames fans from around the world to share their experiences being fans of the team from outside of Calgary.

We were absolutely overwhelmed by both the number of responses we received, and how many amazing stories fans shared with us.

Full Global Flames Fan Series: Australia, England, Scotland, Finland, Sweden, Germany, the Czech Republic, Netherlands, Switzerland, Morocco, Tunisia, Tajikistan, Brazil, China, the United States, and Canada outside of Calgary.

We’ve been privileged to be part of the Flames community for over three years now, and we’ve loved every minute contributing with and getting to know great fans of the team. Over the next couple weeks, we’ll be sharing some of the responses we got from various parts of the world.

Our survey asked fans questions about the their best and worst memories of being a Flames fan, how they became fans of the team, how they watch games and celebrate team victories outside of Calgary, and what sport is the most popular where they live, among other things.

Here are some fun stats about the survey responses we collected.

  • 145 survey responses collected
  • 102 cities represented
  • 23 countries represented
  • 6 continents represented

  1. I became a flames fan when i was young. I moved to Georgia when i was 4 and started playing hockey down here when i was 8. So at that point the flames had already been moved to calgary 10 years before i was born. So with no team here, i became a fan. Then atlanta got the trashers, i went to as many games as my parents would let me, and by the time i was old enough to get a car and work. Atlanta being the amazing hockey town it is,lol, lost its second team. And the good ole thrashers are now the jets. So me living in Atlanta and their two olds teams now poised in the playoffs makes for a good first round battle royale.

    (And i was born in Toronto, so naturally im a leafs fan for life, hockey is life, and everyone just wants hockey back. But thats a bit into my team following and why i live in the south and follow only canadian teams, who all havent lifted the cup in a long time/ever )
