CBA ENJOYS RECORD ATTENDANCE IN OPENING WEEKS
Published December 16, 1994
With 373 games remaining in the regular season, the CBA is on track to break last year's attendance record of 1.8M. This year's numbers are 8,118 ahead of last season's average of 3,895 per game, and the final count is expected to exceed 2 million. CBA Commissioner Tom Valdiserri: "I believe that this is a credit to our clubs, and the fact that our level of quality players is at an all-time high." Much success can be attributed to the league's move into five new larger markets, with three of those new teams increasing gate totals by 10%. The Mexico Aztecas report a 71.9% jump over '93-94 when the team was in Fargo, ND (CBA).
