NBA attendance – additional information

The total attendance at regular season games in the NBA reached its peak in the 2015/16 season, as 21.95 million people attended regular NBA season games during that particular season. This is slight increase from the 2014/15 season, when about 21.91 million people attended regular season games. On average, NBA home games brought over 17 thousand people to NBA arenas per game in the last few seasons. With an average of 17,849 attendees, the 2015/16 season established a new record for the league in terms of attendance since the 2006/07 league. The Chicago Bulls have the highest average regular season home attendance amongst all NBA franchises; about 21,820 spectators attended home games of the team during the 2015/16 season. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks are amongst the teams with the highest average regular season home attendance in the NBA.

The New York Knicks have the most expensive tickets in the NBA. In the 2015/16, tickets to watch the Knicks cost, on average, about 130 U.S. dollars. Tickets for Los Angeles Lakers games cost an average of 103.27 U.S. dollars, while fans of the Chicago Bulls paid about 82 U.S. dollars to watch their team play during that season. These are the top three most expensive tickets in the league as of the 2015/16 season. Although prices have risen over the last few years, the average regular season NBA ticket is indeed cheaper than that.
