In Australian rules football, the AFL Grand Final, held annually at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, draws approximately 100,000 spectators, making it the world's highest attended league championship event.

This article lists the attendance of many sports competitions around the world, based in some cases on the number of tickets sold or given away, rather than people actually present. The list is almost exclusively field and arena ball sports. Top leagues in weekly attendance includes speedway sports.

Top leagues in recent domestic club championship event attendance[edit]

Inside Wembley Stadium
The annual UAAP Cheerdance Competition routinely sells out the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Southeast Asia's largest indoor arena.

This section lists the most recent attendances at annual championship events (single decider matches or the final match in a best-of series only) by total attendance. It also includes domestic leagues and competitions. Additionally, it includes the finals of top-level promotion playoffs, in which teams play to determine potential or confirmed promotion to a country's top league level in the next season. It has to be noted that the listed crowd figures are usually a reflection of a championship venue's capacity, as demand for these events is generally so high that any stadium or arena would be filled to capacity.

The method by which championship venue(s) are determined can indirectly affect the attendance of such a match.

In most competitions that use a best-of final series, each individual match typically takes place at one team's home venue. In the Philippine Basketball Association, a competition in which no team has its own home arena, finals matches (including any that can potentially end a series) are held at three large venues in or near Metro Manila: Smart Araneta Coliseum, Mall of Asia Arena and sometimes Philippine Arena.

In most competitions that have a one-off final, the site is determined well in advance. Some competitions have a permanent site for their finals. Two notable examples are the Australian Football League, whose Grand Final is always at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), and the Gaelic Athletic Association, which holds its final matches in Gaelic football and hurling at Croke Park. Others determine the final venue anywhere from months to years before the event, such as the NFL, which determines the host of the Super Bowl more than three years in advance.

However, one transnational club event in rugby union (whose final attendance is listed in a separate table) uses a very different system. In Super Rugby, the final is awarded to the finalist that finished higher in the league table during the regular season. Another transnational club event in the same sport, Pro14 (originally the Celtic League), used the same method to determine the host of its final until 2015, when it began to use a predetermined site.

As of the 2018 season, all 10 American college sports conferences that sponsor football in the top-level Division I FBS hold season-ending conference championship games in that sport. Of these leagues, six have a permanent site for their title games and four award hosting rights to the division champion with the better record in conference play (with tiebreakers used as needed).

For the purposes of this table, "domestic" is defined to include leagues which are historically focused in one country, but may have teams in one or more nearby countries. Examples of this phenomenon include:

  • Of the six largest professional leagues in English-speaking North America, only the two gridiron football leagues—the NFL and CFL—operate on one side of the U.S.–Canada border. Of the four traditional "major leagues", only the NHL has more than one team in Canada; as of the most recent 2017–18 season, it has 24 teams in the U.S. and seven in Canada. Major League Soccer, in recent years becoming increasingly accepted as a fifth "major league", currently has 20 U.S. teams and three Canadian teams, and will add three more U.S. teams by 2021.
  • The Gaelic Athletic Association, which governs Gaelic games, is mostly restricted to the island of Ireland, although teams from London and New York City participate in its senior championships.
  • Two major Australian leagues—the National Rugby League (rugby league) and A-League (association football)—have included a team from New Zealand since their inception.
  • The vast majority of the teams competing in rugby league's Super League have been from England. Only three teams from outside the country, two from France and one from Wales, have ever competed in the league, and only one of these teams (from France) currently competes at this level.
  • Although the Challenge Cup of rugby league currently includes teams from France, Wales, and Canada, and has in the past also had teams from Scotland and Russia, the overwhelming majority of the competing teams are from England.
  • The English association football pyramid includes several clubs from Wales, although Welsh clubs do not necessarily participate at every level in a given season. As of the current 2018–19 season, Cardiff City play in the Premier League, replacing the relegated Swansea City. The latter club had played in the Premier League since 2011–12, and both clubs played in the Premier League in 2013–14.
  • The Kontinental Hockey League is headquartered in Moscow and is mostly a Russian league, although as of its most recently completed 2017–18 season it also has teams in Belarus, China, Finland, Kazakhstan, Latvia, and Slovakia.

The EuroLeague in basketball is transnational in that it includes teams from multiple European countries, but is domestic in the sense of being a championship for the single entity of Europe. It is governed by Euroleague Basketball, an explicitly pan-European body that is independent of the continental governing body of FIBA Europe.

This contrasts with leagues such as Super Rugby and Pro14, which operate in multiple countries with more than one team in most (Super Rugby) or all (Pro14) of their participating countries, and also make no pretense of being a championship for a continental-size region.

Semi-professional and amateur leagues[edit]

View of the crowd at the 2004 Rose Bowl College Football Game

This section lists college and amateur leagues by total attendance. Remaining amateurism requirements in the majority of top-level sports were dropped in the late 20th century, and there are now only a few amateur leagues which are of interest to a wide public. In the United States, college sports are very popular and at least one significant ice hockey league retains an amateur requirement. In Ireland, the All-Ireland senior championships in Gaelic football and hurling, both operated by the Gaelic Athletic Association, which continues to prohibit professionalism, each draw over 80,000 to fill Croke Park for the respective finals.[160]

The NCAA championships listed here are all composed of several separate conferences with varying attendance levels. For example, in American football, per-game home attendances for the highest level of competition, Division I FBS, in the 2017 season ranged from 15,394 for Mid-American Conference teams to 75,074 for Southeastern Conference teams.[161][Note 2] NCAA Division I FBS football has the 2nd highest average attendance worldwide for any league-wide sport (behind the National Football League) and the 2nd highest overall attendance worldwide (behind Major League Baseball). For college baseball, Dudy Noble Field, Polk-DeMent Stadium at Mississippi State University holds the on-campus attendance record at 15,586[162] and all of college baseball's Top 11 on-campus largest crowds.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ This number is the average attendance per session. The NCAA Division I wrestling championship finals are contested in six sessions over three days, with separate ticketing for each session. The total attendance for the entire tournament was 113,743.
  2. ^ This includes all regular-season games, bowl games for FBS teams, and playoff games and other postseason games in FCS and lower divisions. It does not include postseason all-star games.
  3. ^ a b The actual number of games is slightly greater than the cited figure. In most postseason tournaments, as well as some special events during the regular season, tickets are sold for "sessions" instead of games. For example, in the NCAA men's tournament, in which 67 games are played in all, tickets are sold for 36 sessions. All NCAA tournament sessions consist of two games, except for the four regional finals and the national championship game; a single ticket admits the holder to both games of a two-game session.
  4. ^ a b This figure covers all games, including the NCAA tournament and other postseason tournaments.
  5. ^ This figure includes only regular-season home games for each team. It includes special outdoor events, but does not include neutral-site games, conference tournaments, or the NCAA tournament.
  6. ^ Since 2005, the game has featured an MLS all-star team against a visiting foreign club team.
  7. ^ Since the game's inception in 2013, it has featured an A-League all stars team against a visiting foreign club.
  8. ^ Since the 2016 edition, the NHL All-Star Game has been organized as a four-team knockout tournament, with each team drawn exclusively from one of the league's four divisions.
  9. ^ All games within the All-Star Game are played in an abbreviated format of a single 20-minute period, with each team having three skaters (instead of the regular five) and one goaltender on the ice at any given time (unless affected by penalties).
  10. ^ Tickets for the All-Star Game are sold on a single-event basis. The 60 minutes of game time in the tournament is the same as a standard NHL game, and all three abbreviated games are held back-to-back as part of the same event.
  11. ^ Super Rugby organiser SANZAAR is a joint venture between the national rugby union governing bodies of Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. All four countries, plus Japan, field teams in the competition.
  12. ^ The league originally consisted only of teams from the three listed Celtic nations. Ireland and Wales currently field four teams each, and Scotland fields two. Since 2010–11, Italy has fielded two teams, and two South African teams began play in 2017–18.
