Top 10 Sports Teams That Need Relocation


The Top Ten

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

There really isn't any way for Phoenix to get any more fans. Hockey won't work there. At least in South Florida there's a possibility, even though it's small, that hockey could work. There's just nothing like that in Arizona.

As john Oliver puts it, they are spending millions of dollars in taxpayer money to keep a giant slab of ice in Arizona.

Move them to Las Vegas or Montreal

Too warm in az to make ice

2 Tampa Bay Rays Tampa Bay Rays The 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

Channelside, Tampa. Even drew them a ballpark.

3 Sacramento 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

4 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills The Buffalo Bills are a professional American football team based in the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area that competes in the National Football League. Buffalo Bills had the longest playoff drought of any team which came to an end in 2017.

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

5 Charlotte Hornets Charlotte 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

6 Florida Panthers Florida Panthers The 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

7 Memphis Grizzlies Memphis 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

8 New York Islanders New 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

9 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders The 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

In 2019 or 2020, the Raiders will start playing in Las Vegas.

They're relocating to Vegas

10 Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers

They'll be getting a new stadium in 2020. - thomwim

The Contenders

11 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida.
12 Carolina Hurricanes Carolina Hurricanes The Carolina Hurricanes are a professional ice hockey team based in Raleigh, North Carolina. They are members of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League.

Their attendance was worse than the Coyotes from 2014-17. - thomwim

Move back to Hartford you dummies!

13 New Orleans Pelicans New 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

14 Oakland Athletics Oakland Athletics

A close move like San Jose would make sense. Or maybe Montreal.

15 Edmonton Oilers Edmonton Oilers The Edmonton Oilers are a professional ice hockey team based in Edmonton, Alberta. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

Complete garbage since 2006 and have taken 4-5 FIRST OVERALL picks and traded 2 OF them for nonthing! It's surprising how teams like the coyotes, a team that shouldn't be in Arizona has made the playoffs more than Edmonton in 10 years!

16 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Browns compete in the National Football League as a member team of the American Football Conference North division. more.

This team has been at the bottom of the league since they returned to the NFL. - thomwim

17 Los Angeles Lakers Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Lakers compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. more.

The name lakers doesn’t make sense

18 New York Jets New York Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

New York has too much sports teams they have 2 nba teams and they have 2 mlb teams and 2 nhl teams and they all ready have New York giants.

19 Los Angeles Clippers Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.

The name clippers doesn’t make sense cause you could only see clipper boat in san diego

20 New York Mets New York Mets The New York Mets are an American professional baseball team based in New York City. They play in Flushing, in the borough of Queens.

Why does New York need 2 mlb teams? They all ready have the successful New York Yankees 27 World Series which they won and the Mets 2 World Series In 1969 And 1989
