Winnipeg Jets Attendance

| November 27, 2010 | 6 Comments

Many people believe that is was fledgling attendance and fan support issues that caused the Winnipeg Jets to be relocated to Phoenix. While the Jets attendance was frequently in the bottom end of the league, there were also arena management and a host of other organizational issues that led to the Jets flying south to Phoenix.

Below are the average Winnipeg Jets attendance numbers for the seasons that they played in the National Hockey League. Jets attendance numbers are included for both Regular Season and Playoff games.

    The jets are okay hope they don’t leave again, Ha Ha

    I would certainly hope so.
    But, Islanders owner Charles Wang has publicly stated that he wishes he had never bought the team. Pretty sad for the franchise when ownership isn’t interested.

    I just checked. The Islanders average just over 10,000 fans a game. Winnipeg could beat that! Couldn’t they?

    Greg,
    Thanks for the comment!
    It’s amazing how times change. With Winnipeg now having the brand new (albeit potentially small by NHL standards) MTS Centre and Quebec lobbying for a new facility, could we see the return of the NHL to these cities? I hope so.

  5. The Jets suffered the same fate in the mid 90′s as the Whalers and the Nordiques – NHL Management interested in expanding into new markets and the lack of a state-of-the-art stadium that could generate millions in revenue.

    The Jets had pretty stable attendance. Certainly more people attended in that old crappy Winnipeg arena than the Phoenix Coyotes and New york Islanders get.
