September 10, 2014

MANILA, Philippines - Average attendance took a dip in the PBA last season due to adjustments in schedule to allow an extended training period for the national team but the pro league’s new chairman Patrick Gregorio said the other day the goal is to set a record in live audience numbers in the 40th anniversary campaign starting Oct. 19.

The average attendance record for a season is 7,700 set in 1996 and nearly broken in 2010-11. Indications are clear that a new record will soon be made with crowds of over 20,000 recently storming the gates of venues for big games. Last season opened with an audience of 20,298 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum and ended with 23,234 witnessing Game 5 of the Governors Cup Finals between San Mig Coffee and Rain Or Shine. During the season, the PBA recorded an all-time, single-game attendance mark of 24,883 in Game 7 of the Philippine Cup semifinals between San Mig Coffee and Barangay Ginebra San Miguel to eclipse the previous high of 23,436 in Game 3 of the 2012-13 Commissioner’s Cup Finals between Alaska and Ginebra.

For the first time in its 39-year history, the PBA will welcome 12 teams this season. Kia Motors and Blackwater are joining the fold as expansion franchises. N-Lex is another new member after buying the Air 21 franchise....
