Here on the SeatGeek blog, we analyze trends and data across ticket sales and translate it into fan demand. As 2010 comes to a close, we set out to determine the hottest sports events of the year based on fan sentiment and average ticket price. Many of the events featured in this list are not surprising, as ticket demand closely syncs up with team records, hype, controversy, and newsworthiness. Still, we think you’ll find some surprises here and there; we sure are pleased with the fan confidence  and signs of an upturn in ticket sales over the past year.

What do you think of our list? Are there any particular events that you think we left out? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @SeatGeek.
