The Rams have the least interested fans, scoring an average home attendance of 84% over the last decade.
The Dallas Cowboys have the most loyal fans of this decade, with attendances averaging out to 103.2%
With growing reports of low attendance levels, increased no-show rates, and empty seats across the NFL1, fan attendance hasn’t quite matched preseason enthusiasm levels.
With teams such as the Washington Football Team struggling with home attendance rates of around 62.8% during the current season, how do these lower figures compare to the last decade?
By analyzing attendance data, Bookies.com has revealed the average NFL attendance levels from the last decade, to identify the teams with the most loyal supporters.
The NFL’s Least Devoted Fans
The LA Rams are strong contenders in their NFC West Division; last taking the crown in the 18-19 season, many fans are taking the hype to the stadium, hoping 2021 is their year. But, while the Rams are doing well during the current season, and currently have a 99.6% attendance rate, fan loyalty over the last decade has been poor, with the worst NFL attendance record of all – 84%.
The Washington Football Team follows closely behind the Rams, with an 85.9% attendance capacity. Surprisingly, the 2021 Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers closely follow in third, having an average attendance of 85.4%.
It’s no surprise that the most valuable sporting team globally, the Dallas Cowboys, have the highest percentage of attendees over the last ten years – 103.2%. The Cowboys’ neighboring team, the Houston Texans, also boasts one of the highest attendance levels, with an average of 100.6%. Only nine of the 32 teams have an average attendance of over 100%.
