Technology is playing a larger part in every sphere of life, sports included. Athletes and fans constantly tweet, snap, and post about training, games, practice, etc. SportTechie, a company specializing in analyzing the intersection between sports and tech, took the time to put together a comprehensive list of the 25 most tech-savvy professional sports teams in 2016. Their methodology and criteria for judgement included three key variables: regular partnerships and utilizations of new technologies and sports technology companies, unique fan engagement tactics via digital platforms and new tech, and players on the team who are involved in startups and sports technology companies.

If we’re tallying winners here, the top location is California with representation from nine teams. The NBA narrowly wins the most tech-savvy league with seven teams in the top 25 with both the NFL and MLB tied for second with six team representations respectively.

Check out the teams below and the reasoning they made the list here. Let us know below if your team made the cut.
