Facebook has released a ‘fandom’ map, which shows the most-liked teams on the social networking site across all Indian States and districts. Facebook has mapped the fans of each of the eight IPL teams across India and it shows that each team is the most supported one in its home State.

But in States that do not have a team, Chennai Super Kings dominates. CSK has also garnered maximum likes on Facebook. Interestingly, more people in Delhi like CSK more than their home team. In fact, Daredevils do not have a plurality of fans in an Indian district, while in Gurgaon, Mumbai Indians is the most popular among Facebook fans.

Since the IPL season began, Facebook has seen millions of people getting engaged with their favourite teams, players, and with their friends around IPL content.
