ARENA FOOTBALL LEAGUE PROJECTS BIG GAINS
Published March 28, 1995
With the Arena Football League set to begin May 12, the league office reports that season ticket sales have already broken a league record. As of March 17, season ticket sales have risen 11% more than total sales for all of '94 -- making it possible that the league could top the 1 million mark in attendance this season. AFL Commissioner James Drucker: "It's a domino effect. More teams and more national television coverage leads to increasing national and local exposure, which leads to record-breaking ticket sales" (Arena Football).
