AMERICANS NOT OVERFLOWING WITH CFL ENTHUSIASM
Published May 19, 1995
Season ticket sales for US-based CFL clubs are down, according to Mike Ganter in this morning's TORONTO SUN. Ganter took a survey of the five American teams and found "some scary numbers." A sampling: In San Antonio, the Texans, fresh from their move from Sacramento, have sold only 1,500 season tickets. The two expansion franchises -- Birmingham and Memphis -- are only at 2,000 and 7,500 respectively. Ganter reports that "even the Baltimore CFLers, coming off a Grey Cup appearance" are down 6,000 this season from last year's 26,000 (TORONTO SUN, 5/19).
