NPB Regular Season and Fan Appreciation Day Attendance Figures

by on Nov.23, 2009 @ 9:48 pm, under NPB

Not sure if anyone is really interested in these numbers, but I figured I'd go ahead and post them anyway.

I'll update the figures for the incomplete clubs when they become available.

Team Regular Season Average Fan Apprec. Day FAD Date
Yomiuri Giants 2,934,370 40,755 ~43,000 11/23
Chunichi Dragons 2,298,405 31,922 11/28
Yakult Swallows 1,332,366 18,505 17,432 11/23
Hanshin Tigers 3,007,074 41,765 32,000 11/21
Hiroshima Carp 1,873,046 26,015 ~32,000 11/23
Yokohama Bay Stars 1,203,169 17,319 ~24,000 11/23
Nippon Ham Fighters 1,992,172 27,669 ~42,000 11/21
Rakuten Eagles 1,246,967 16,711 17,626 11/23
Softbank Hawks 2,245,969 31,194 28,684 11/22
Seibu Lions 1,515,045 21,042 11/23
Chiba Lotte Marines 1,465,189 20,350 ~24,000 11/21
Orix Buffaloes 1,285,907 17,860 11/29

Note: When looking at the regular season attendance figures, be sure to keep in mind that teams also play home games in other stadiums.  According to the NPB site:

Team Actual Other Team Actual Other
Giants 63 9 Fighters 57 15
Dragons 67 5 Eagles 69 3
Swallows 69 3 Hawks 68 4
Tigers 60 12 Lions 69 3
Carp 67 5 Marines 72 0
Bay Stars 65 7 Buffaloes 48 24

The Buffaloes are something of a special case.  While their home stadium is considered the Kyocera Dome, they also play quite a few games at their "second home," Skymark Stadium.  Incidentally, the chart above was compiled by the NPB prior to the start of the 2009 season and does not take make-up games into consideration.
