So while the Tigers continue to ravage the WHL on the Road, here are some Home Attendance Numbers.
This Graph is through all 48 game played @ The Canalta Center.
We can see a big high point and a steady decline which is normal for having a poor team. However what isn't normal is having the number continue to slide while the Tigers are near the top of the league. The 2016 season starts at Game 38
Total Attendance To Date: 200,178 Fans
Average Total Attendance: 4170 Fans
Broken Down By Day Of The Week (All 48 games)
Saturday is their high point, but if we take away the first 4 games, average attendance is 4176. Their isn't a whole lot of variance on the average. These numbers are relatively stable.
Ticket AVG Broken Down by Year
16-17 AVG: 3902
15-16 AVG: 4249
Difference: -347 or -8.2%
2016 Attendance By Day
The biggest drop looks to be the weekday games so far. Saturday while down "a 100 or so" is still a decent draw.
I Imagine the poor economy is a big reason for declining numbers. I also think that in previous seasons the casual fan needed to have a season ticket in order to see hockey games. Now they don't need to eat tickets in order to see games with more seats in the new Canalta Centre.
Over 5000 Fans Their are only 3 games where attendance was above 5000 fans. All 3 of those games were against Lethbridge: (Sept 26,2015 (Opener), Dec 27/2015, MAR 19th 2015(Last Game).
Hopefully they add a few more during the playoffs this season.
