Year-by-year paid attendance figures for the American Football League, which played from 1960-1969 before merging with the National Football League. Of course football has become way more popular since then and because it has the athletes are way better than they were then and there are so many more of them. The dedication to training is nowhere like it is now either, so I'm convinced another outdoor league would work if done the right way. AFL attendance didnt get to 30,000 avg umtil the 6th season. It went from 16,000 in 1st year to 18,000 in 2nd, 20,000 in 3rd, 22,000 in 4th, 25,000 in 5th, 32,000 in 6th, 34,000 in 7th, 37,000 in 8th, 39,000 in 9th, 42,000 in last year before merger. A new league needs to be patient and build fan support. There is plenty of talent to build their own Hall of fame caliber stars in time.
