Regular season home attendance of National Football League teams 2019

The Dallas Cowboys had the highest total home attendance during the NFL regular season in 2019 – around 100,000 more spectators attended their games than the next ranked NFL team. At the other end of the rankings, the Los Angeles Chargers had the lowest total home attendance.

Explaining the attendance disparity

The Cowboys have played their home games at AT&T Stadium since 2009. The team had an average regular-season home attendance of 90,929 during the 2019 season, which ranked the highest of all 32 NFL teams. The Los Angeles Chargers played their 2019 season home games at a temporary venue because its new stadium is under construction. The Chargers relocated to Los Angeles from San Diego ahead of the 2017 season, and playing in a stadium that was not initially designed for NFL games has resulted in low average regular-season home attendances.

The stars of the Lone Star State

The Cowboys are referred to as America’s Team – a nickname that originated in 1978. However, the franchise is a global success story and was ranked the most valuable sports team in 2019, with an estimated value of five billion U.S. dollars. Since 2001, the annual revenue of the Dallas Cowboys has failed to increase just once – figures that helped to fund the 1.3 billion U.S. dollar construction costs of AT&T Stadium.
