The Vikings are, of course, the favorite NFL team across the Land of 10,000 Lakes and now comes word that the Vikings jerseys are some of the most popular in the NFL too.

The Minnesota Vikings have been a member of the National Football League (NFL) since 1961 when the then-new franchise became the 14th member of the league. And, like many NFL teams, they've retained their distinctive purple, gold, and white color scheme that's been reflected in their team helmets and uniforms over the past 62 years. (And,  since 2016, on the seats at US Bank Stadium as well.)

And those distinctive Purple Pride jerseys we often see here in Minnesota are apparently some of the most popular across the rest of the NFL too. At least, according to this new survey done by the number-crunchers at Gambling.com.

By analyzing the Google Search volumes for terms surrounding both the purchase and the general interest in the jersey of every team in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS and some of Europe’s elite Soccer clubs, the teams with the most in-demand jerseys in America have been ranked.

Out of all those pro sports teams' jerseys, the result showed that the Los Angeles Dodgers jersey from Major League Baseball (MLB) is the most in-demand jersey in America with a staggering 2 million annual Google searches. The NFL's Philadelphia Eagles and came in second with 1.98 million searches, followed by MLB's Houston Astros with 1.85 million searches.
