River Lions average un official about 1,400 per game. I am sure more events will come to the Meridian Centre in the next few years,

My buddy went to a game and quite enjoyed it but said there was no more than a couple hundred people in the stand tops and announced was over 1000. Sounds like a lot of no shows if that is the norm ...

Not sure if that the normal for no shows maybe the nice weather caused it. I am glad your friend enjoyed the game I also do in the games I have went too .

Made a mistake looked at the NBL site the River Lions average 1,219 fans per game according to the Standard the crowd today or at least ticket sales were 1,375 . Not bad for a first year team maybe with more promotion they might get more people out still out drawing Windsor and Orangeville.

The early (public) hopes for the team were to sell 1,200 tickets a game and expand it to 2,000 within a few years.

Thought I read they were hoping for 1500.

Hopefully their announced attendance numbers are PAID and not freebies ...

Will be interesting to see if they renew their lease at the MC as they only signed a one year lease.

I guess if they try and stick it out next year than they are pleased with their progress and their losses are less or as much as predicted. If they fold up like a cheap tent , than my presumptions will have proven to be correct.

I hope it succeeds. Don't get me wrong.

I don't ever plan on attending as I don't watch basketball whatsoever. Too busy watching NHL OHL and MLB.

unfortunately i said when they got here i doubt they will be that successful because alot of people would probably decide to save money for the Icedogs and concerts before going to a basketball game i wouldn't be surprised if its the same thing for the Lacrosse team

Do you know this for fact ? Or just your presumption ? Id be interested to read anything that supports your statement as fact.

Thanks.
