Encyclopedia > Sports league attendances

The table below lists domestic sports leagues from around the world by total attendances for the last completed season. It is unlikely that any leagues with attendances over 10 million are missing, but below that level the table is very incomplete at present.


Points to consider:

  • The correlation between revenue and attendance is quite weak. For example NFL is on a par with Major League Baseball financially despite having less than one quarter of the total attendance because it charges much higher ticket prices and has a larger television contract.
  • In some cases the figures listed are for main season games only.
  • In some sports the main league competition provides each club or franchise with virtually the whole of its attendance and revenue. In others, there are multiple competitions, for example leading English football clubs compete in four competitions each season, but only the league competition is listed below.
  • In some sports, for example rugby union, international competitions and transnational club competitions provide a significant part of total attendances and revenue.
  • Free or heavily discounted seats may be counted by some leagues. No-shows for paid seats may be included in some cases, but not in others.
  • Not all leagues publish official attendance figures. Various media outlets produce their own figures and sometimes these do not agree. The accuracy of the figures in the table cannot be guaranteed.
This table is incomplete. Please help Wikipedia by adding more leagues.
