RIP CITY! A THIRD OF PORTLAND LATINOS FOLLOW THE TRAIL BLAZERS
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON DUCKS SUCCESS GREATLY INCREASES HISPANIC FANS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 1, 2011
PORTLAND, OR. - In a recent study of Portland metro-area Latino adults, 31.3% follow the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers, up from 23.9% in 2010. This represents approximately 92,400 Hispanic fans.

Furthermore, nearly 90,340 Latinos have attended a Blazers game in the past 12 months.

While riding on the hype of playing for the NCAA football national championship, the University of Oregon Ducks were able to increase their Hispanic fan base from 15.3% to an impressive 21.6%.

Other sports organizations did not fair as well. While the Oregon State Beavers and Portland Timbers maintained their Latino market share; the Portland State Vikings, University of Portland Pilots, and Portland Winter Hawks Hockey dropped by half from 2010.
