I’ve finished gathering attendance numbers for the Scouts first season: The average attendance at Scouts home games was 8,529. On the road, they played in front of an average crowd of roughly 13,500 (missing data for 11 of 40 games). As I reported in an earlier post, the home attendance averaged 8,431 in the first half of the season; interestingly, it ticked upward in the second half to 9,027. The best attended game was the opener with 14,758, followed by a late-season game against Buffalo on March 22 with 13,567. The lowest attendance came on December 12 against California, with just 5,979 at the arena.
I’ll be back in a few days with notes on the final five weeks of the ’74-’75 season.
