Top 10 Sports Teams That Need Relocation


The Top TenXW

1Arizona CoyotesThe Arizona Coyotes are a professional ice hockey team based in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, Arizona.

Gila River Arena has one of the WORST attendances in the league. The franchise loses $10M a year! A relocation to Las Vegas would be great! - DoroExploro13

2Tampa Bay RaysThe Tampa Bay Rays are an American professional baseball team based in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Rays compete in Major League Baseball as a member of the American League East division.

They have terrible attendance. Their stadium is an embarrassment to the sport of baseball. A move from St. Petersburg to Tampa or Montreal would be good. - DoroExploro13

3Sacramento Kings

There are already 3 other teams in California. NBA Champions Warriors, world-popular Lakers, and playoff contending Clippers. However, the Kings have been a mess for years and won't come close to winning another NBA title. A move to Seattle would make WAY more sense. - DoroExploro13

4Buffalo BillsThe Buffalo Bills are a professional American football team based in the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area that competes in the National Football League.

Orchard Park isn't a good spot for the Bills and they don't get much attendance. The Jets and Giants have WAY more attendance than the Bills. Toronto would be a great place for them. - DoroExploro13

I think it's less a matter of "if" and more a matter of "when". Toronto is going to get them and I think that is pretty much common knowledge. - BKAllmighty

5Charlotte Hornets

The attendance is horrible! Jordan didn't do anything but change the name of the team. Nobody wants to watch a team who won't go anywhere. So move them to Buffalo or Tampa. - DoroExploro13

6Florida PanthersThe Florida Panthers are an American professional ice hockey team based in the Miami metropolitan area.

The Panthers have the worst attendance in the league and have only made the playoffs 5 times in their franchise history. Their state rivals, Tampa Bay Lightning, have great attendance and way more playoff appearances. And who watches hockey in Sunrise? A move to Quebec City would be a good choice. - DoroExploro13

I agree completely. Quebec City deserves a team. They actually want one. - BKAllmighty

7Memphis Grizzlies

First off, Grizzles is a horrible name for a state without any grizzly bears. They have trouble bringing in fans and lose a lot every year. A move to Vancouver would be perfect. - DoroExploro13

8New York Islanders

Not sure about this one. New York City can support multiple teams for basically every sport and there are enough hockey fans there. I was in NYC in 2014 and I was pleased with how much the city loves hockey. - BKAllmighty

The Islanders are not as popular as their city rivals, the Rangers. The move to Brooklyn did nothing for them. Just move them somewhere close. - DoroExploro13

9Oakland RaidersThe Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

The stadium is a MESS. Move them to San Antonio. San Antonio was more than enough money for a football team. It would make so much sense. - DoroExploro13

10New Orleans Pelicans

Though Anthony Davis increased attendance there, they still can't make enough money. Yet, they aren't appreciated enough. Move them to Las Vegas - DoroExploro13

The Contenders

11Jacksonville JaguarsThe Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida.
12Carolina Hurricanes
