NBL crowds rise again - Mar 29, 2012

As the National Basketball League prepares to tip-off the 2012 iiNet NBL Championship Finals Series this Friday night, the league has announced that the average NBL attendance at games has grown for the third straight season in a row.

Following the completion of the last of the NBLs 126 regular season games last weekend, the average crowd at NBL matches rose by 3% over the 2010/11 campaign. The average attendance at an NBL fixture this season was 4,168 people, compared to an average of 4,031 last season.

Over the past three seasons the average NBL crowd has grown each year, with a total growth of 20% in crowds across the league since the 2009/10 season. This year there were almost 20,000 more fans at iiNet NBL Championship games than there were last year, with total regular season attendance growing from 507,848 to 525,143.

Basketball Australia Chief Executive Officer Larry Sengstock said the leagues growth showed a continuing positive trend for the NBL and basketball.

Its gratifying to see that the hard work that the league and the NBL clubs have put in is continuing to translate into tangible growth for our sport, said Sengstock. We have now seen our NBL attendance figures increase for three straight seasons, which means were attracting thousands more fans to our sport.

When you couple that with the 11.6 per cent rise in attendances in the WNBL this season, it provides the strongest indication yet that basketball is a healthy sport that is thriving, Sengstock added. Were also seeing significant growth in the on-line sphere as well, with traffic to nbl.com.au and our club sites up from one million unique visitors in 2009/10 to being on track to hit the 2 million mark by the end of the financial year.

We still have a great deal of hard work ahead of us but we are making steps in the right direction, and not just baby steps anymore. We have genuine cause to feel optimistic about the future of our sport.

The New Zealand Breakers led the NBL in attendance growth this season, with a massive 40% increase in average game attendance on the back of their move of some games to the larger Vector Arena. Whilst the Melbourne Tigers wont be part of the playoff action, they did still experience a 5% increase in crowds this season. Cairns and Perth also increased their attendance by 3% this season while Adelaide were up 1%.

The 2012 iiNet NBL Championship Finals Series tips-off this Friday when the New Zealand Breakers host the Townsville Crocodiles at Vector Arena. The initial release of tickets for the game sold out in approximately two hours, causing the club to do a second release of additional seats which is also expected to sell-out shortly. The game is already guaranteed of setting a new record crowd not only for a Breakers home game, but for any basketball match in New Zealand.
