Statistics Showing Decline in Attendance at Professional Sporting Events

Rising ticket costs, accessibility to wifi at home among factors in low attendance.
    CHICAGO, IL, June 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The attendance at live sporting events has seen drastic highs and lows in recent years and that inconsistency plays a major role in the bottom line of a stadium. HD televisions, rising ticket prices, and the popularity of fantasy leagues has created a stronger desire for fans to stay away from the stadium and make other plans to watch their favorite team.

On July 14-15, front office professionals will be gathering at the In-Stadium Fan Experience Summit in Chicago to discuss the biggest challenges in getting fans to the game and most effective ways for improving the overall fan experience within their stadiums. Distinguished speakers including Chip Suttles of the Seattle Seahawks, Bob Laskowski of the Chicago Bears, and Joel Vece of the Atlanta Braves will be leading sessions and panel discussions on topics such as implementing paperless ticketing, implementing game day traditions and pregame events, and employing the use of digital media to improve the fan experience.

Research has shown that NFL attendance is steadily declining due a variety of factors to climbing ticket prices and concession purchases and the desire to have easy access to fantasy sports. Teams are now experimenting with mobile engagement, on-demand video replays and order-from-your-seat concession service.
