ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The Rochester Red Wings drew more fans in 2019 than any season since 2010. The 451,853 fans are the most in a season since the team drew 462,004 in 2010 and nearly 14,000 more than last year.

 

On May 26 the team was 21,000 fans behind 2018 at that point in the season. But the weather improved and so did the crowds: seven nights of at least 10,000 and three of over 12,000, including a season-high 12,483 on July 3.

    Was a time in the IL when they reported attendance as people thru the turnstiles…which can explain the lower totals in years past. The reported figures now represent tickets sold. the turnstile count is much smaller. Sometimes we find that out, sometimes not. From a revenue standpoint, tickets sold matter. From the standpoint of who actually go to the games…well I have to think the number is under 300,000.
    When I was a kid the box scores in April would reflect attendances of 300 or 450 routinely…because even back then, nobody came to the park in chilly April or early May. Watching games from Buffalo, I know there were nights when they reported 8,000 when it was pretty clear they may have been less than half that number in the park.

    Fun with numbers!
