How Much Has Attendance at L.A. Dodgers Home Games Fallen This Year? By Multiple Measures, Attendance is at the Lowest Level in Over a Decade


The decrease in attendance for Los Angeles Dodgers games at Dodger Stadium from last year's baseball season has been discussed, but how significant has the decrease been in broader terms? We've conducted an analysis of attendance at this year's Dodgers home games through August 8th's 5-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, and the short answer is that the Dodgers are on pace for their worst home attendance in over a decade by most, if not all, measures. The change in the Dodgers' home attendance is also the worst of all Major League Baseball teams this season, whether measured by the gross change in average attendance or by the percentage change from last season. Interestingly, the team's June 27th bankruptcy filing seems to have had little effect on home attendance. The charts in the attached document summarize our findings.
