I think it will take some time to back to where the CBA was from 1985-1995. the average league wide attendance was 3500 per game (16 teams x 28 home games) for a total of 1,568,000 fans a year. I beleive 1994-95 topped out at around 1,900,000 fans as we had 8 of the 16 teams that year average 3500 or greater, 5 teams (Sioux Falls, Rapid City, Oklahoma City, Mexico City, Fort Wayne) average 4,000 fans or more, and 3 teams (Rapid City, Sioux Falls, and Fort Wayne) average 5,000 or more fans. With Rapid City averaging 6,000 + Fans for the year.
My Goal: to have the NBDL and the CBA both drawing good fan bases, and make Minor League Basketball in general a great place to be.
The CBA had 7 teams draw 4,000 to 6,000 fans on opening night, so we will see. Pittsburgh surprised me, they had 3500 fans for game 1.
So, the NBDL has 14 teams right? so hopefully we can have a league wide average attendance of around 2500 fans a game to bring the yearly total to about 875,000 fans. that is a good goal for the year. and hopefully we have 3-4 teams that can average 3500 fans or more this year.
