SO, I was reading the 1-28 PBL Weekly report (which I do like from a fan's standpoint), and was trying to figure out the league's attendance situation. Over 90 percent of the games have no listed attendance. Here is the best I can figure out:
ARKANSAS IMPACT
January 18 - Quad Cities (550)
January 19 - Dallas (None reported)
CHICAGO THROWBACKS
January 6 - Arkansas (None reported)
January 18 - Rockford (None reported)
January 20 - Quad City (None reported)
February 3 - Arkansas (None reported)
DALLAS DEFENDERS
January 20 - Rockford (150-200 estimated from newspaper)
January 27 - Arkansas (None reported)
February 3 - Maryland (None reported)
JACKSONVILLE JAM
January 4 - Rochester (1,873)
January 11 - Arkansas (1,643)
January 18 - Maryland (1,501)
February 1 - Rockford (1,411)
MARYLAND NIGHTHAWKS
January 5 - Wilmington (None reported)
January 13 - Reading (None reported)
January 26 - Jacksonville (None reported)
QUAD CITIES RIVERHAWKS
January 4 - Dallas (125)
January 13 - Chicago (200)
January 26 - Dallas (None reported)
READING RAILERS
January 5 - Jacksonville (1,379)
January 6 - Maryland (None reported)
January 18 - Wilmington (None reported)
January 19 - Jacksonville (None reported)

January 12 - Reading (3,081)
January 13 - Jacksonville (1,207)
January 24 - Quad Cities (2,798 )
January 27 - Chicago (1,408 )
February 3 - Wilmington (1,013)
ROCKFORD FURY
January 5 - Chicago (400)
January 12 - Quad Cities (300)
January 13 - Dallas (None reported)

WILMINGTON SEADAWGS

Someone else here was doing this from newspaper reports.

I saw somewhere, a reported figure of over 1,800 in Wilmington for when Rochester visited.

LightningMan, that might have been me. I posted this early on after week 1 based on newspapers and other reported sources:

Jacksonville: 1800
Wilmington: 1200
Maryland: 700
Reading game 1: 1400
Reading game 2: 800
QC: 125
Chicago game 1: 400

I have watched two wilmington games on line that both looked pretty full so I am guessing there attendance has held steady since. Pictures from Maryland look relatively full (look at the pbl site) so I am guessing they are approaching 1k per game. Reading numbers can probably be extracted in their local newspapers. (I haven't taken the time to research.) I thought that there were some 500+ crowds reported as well in Chicago.

It would definitely be easier if the league would include them.

I think the Impact might have found the answer to attendance. At least for one game. This was posted on their site.
Emily Osment who stars as "Lilly" on the hit Show Hannah Montana will be at Barton Coliseum with the Arkansas Impact, March 14.
She will be available for Autographs before and after the game.

I heard or read somewhere, that she showed up at a mall for a Toys-R-Us store and had over 7,000 kids show up for her autograph.
