  • Dolphins Lead NFL With 12% Attendance Gain, Chiefs Also See Big Increase

    The Dolphins led all NFL teams during the '13 regular season with a 12% increase in average home attendance. However, the club filled Sun Life Stadium to just 85.5% capacity -- a low mark among AFC clubs. The Chiefs also saw a double-digit percentage gain at Arrowhead Stadium (+10%). Also seeing strong gains among AFC clubs were the Browns and Chargers -- both up 7% at home. The Jets edged out the Broncos for the AFC attendance lead with 76,957 fans per game, but that mark was down nearly 3% from '12. The Raiders and Steelers had the lowest AFC attendance figures in '12, with those clubs also having the sharpest drops in attendance, respectively. Listed below is team-by-team attendance for the AFC. See yesterday's issue for NFC figures (THE DAILY).
