NWSL attendance dips in season 5 – The Bent Musket

 

Another year has come and gone for the National Women’s Soccer League. Now it’s time for the postmortems, to slice and dice through the results and the data.

Here’s the basics in terms of attendance:

Leaguewide, average attendance was down. In 2016 the average was 5,558. In 2017, the average was 5,082, making for a drop of 8.6%. Overall, this isn’t the worst number considering 2016 was an Olympic year and 2017 didn’t really have a major tournament on national television calling attention to the women’s game. Attendance was also affected by several rescheduled games due to weather – some of them because of the midsummer heat, and a couple due to Hurricane Harvey impacting Houston.
