Attendance numbers for each club (so far)

This is the total attendance list for each club at home this year.

Adelaide: 73,032 (10 games)
Brisbane: 32,863 (9 games)
Cairns: 52,052 (8 games)
Illawarra: 34,374 (10 games)
Melbourne: 85,624 (10 games)
New Zealand: 51,335 (8 games)
Perth: 114,485 (9 games)
SE-Melbourne: 56,395 (11 games)
Sydney Kings: 87,285 (9 games)

Numbers for Brisbane are worrying. Especially for a major city.

Numbers for Sydney and Melbourne also worrying considering how much they're spending.

Those numbers are obviously very raw. Would be interesting to see what they looked like as a percentage of available capacity (eg measuring how many seats are empty).

Anyone want to break that down as an average % of capacity?

The no. of home games for most teams is wrong. Cairns average according to your figures is over their stadium capacity. Probably more errors too.

That's clearly wrong, CCC doesn't even hold 6,500!

Austadiums has 52,413 over 12 games @4,367

Brisbane past four home games have averaged around 4400, they're heading in the right direction after some poor crowds to start the season.

Brisbane past 4 home games 5276, 4016, 4059, 4214. Average = 4391
I'd say that qualifies as near that number.

Over 7000 for Adelaide isn't too bad.
Would that number be much higher if Adelaide were a quality team.
What is the capacity there?

Yes, I went off Austadiums. However, I just checked the AEC website, which gives maximum capacity of 12,000. It shows different capacities for different configurations. One of those is "In the round, fully reserve seated", with a capacity of 10,500, which is what Zodiac said for basketball.

Cairns last 4 -

4392 v Breakers
4573 v Bullets
5135 v Phoenix (pretty much a sellout, only a couple of seats left, if any)
4265 v 36ers

Average 4591

This is really interesting, considering that the league is looking for growth.

Cairns attendances figures look fantastic as % of population, but have they included Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Kuranda etc (and all population within a drive of an hour)

Sydney and Melbourne aren't that great if population is used similarly, but there’s way more entertainment options.

Illawarra and Brisbane definitely poor.

Sydney and Melbourne's crowds are fantastic when you consider where they were a few years ago. The Kings for years were only getting 3-5000 and a crowd of over 6000 was a big crowd then.

United - when they were the Tigers could not evem fill the Cage at times. The only team im Melbourne would struggle to get 3000 to a game. They've been doing great in the last few years but now they have the Phoenix as a second team, United are still drawing good crowds.

For both to average 8500 and 9500 approx is very good. Yes they spend alot to achieve this, but for basketball in a competitive market these numbers are pretty good.

All teams bar Illawarra are doing really well for crowds and Brisbane have improved a lot in the last month. Have they been doing something different to get more people in?

If you said early in the season that Adelaide would get over 9000 to a game I would've said put down your crack pipe.

The Adelaide Entertainment Centre has an overall capacity of 11,300 which includes floor seating.

According to the AEC website, reserved seating is "up to" 10,500.

For 36ers games the way its configured, the capacity is listed (by the 36ers themselves) as 10,000.


The record sports attendances at the AEC are:

9,300 - 2010 ANZ Netball Grand Final. Adelaide Thunderbirds vs Bay of Plenty Magic (7 November 2010).

9,034 - 2019-20 NBL. Adelaide 36ers vs Melbourne United (11 January 2020).

Larger crowds have been reported for WWE shows at the AEC. Though that does include floor seating and its actually listed as entertainment rather than sporting.

On their official Facebook page they said it was 10,000.

If Adelaide make it to the Grand Final (chuckle chuckle) and the place is packed with 10,500 fans I'll admit I was wrong.
