The World Cup is officially here and the biggest sporting event in the world is set to reach record viewing and social media levels. Since sports in the digital age is just as much about stats as it is about the game itself, we decided to conduct a little social data research to see how Louisville fits into this mix.

Focusing solely on our home base, we analyzed what was trending in Louisville over an eight day period. The eight day period we selected isn’t just any eight day period, for it included the announcement of Louisville’s first pro soccer team, California Chrome’s attempt for a Triple Crown victory, the University of Louisville’s Super Regional baseball games, the NBA finals, MLB draft and finally a lead up to the World Cup.

So with all these super sporting events taking place in such a short period of time, how did they stack up next to one another in the Louisville market?

Take a look:
