  • Will the Dodgers top 4,000,000?

    Dodgers surpass two-million mark in ticket sales for 2006 season
    It marks the fastest the club has hit the figure in more than 12 years

    LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers announced today that they have surpassed the two-million mark in ticket sales for the 2006 season and are closing in on 2.5 million with more than three weeks left before Opening Day.
    "One of our main goals is to make Dodger Stadium the most fan- and family-friendly venue in America and these numbers show that we're headed in the right direction," said Dodger Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Marty Greenspun. "We believe that by putting a winning team on the field, our fans will continue to show up in record numbers."

    The Dodgers are already ahead of last year's pace and have reached the two-million mark faster than any year since 1993. During last Saturday's first day of sales for individual game tickets, more than 3,000 fans visited Dodger Stadium and Opening Day, which is slated for April 3 vs. Atlanta, sold out in 15 minutes, the fastest a Dodger home opener has ever sold out.

    In the 2005 season, the Dodgers attracted 3,603,646 fans for the highest total in the National League and their second-largest single-season total ever. The 2005 total was the second-largest in baseball last season and is also the seventh-highest all-time single-season total in National League history.

    The Dodgers have drawn three million fans for 10 consecutive seasons and a Major League-record 20 times overall. Among the 81 home dates last season, the Dodgers tallied 16 sellouts and had 19 crowds of 50,000 or more, including the top two regular-season crowds in Dodger Stadium history.

    The Dodgers hold the distinction of being the No. 1 live draw in the history of sports, according to Guinness World Records Book. Since 1901, the Dodgers have been seen live at their home by more than 169 million fans, tops among any sports franchise in the world. Since Dodger Stadium opened in 1962, more than 122 million fans have attended Dodger games."

    If we win 90+ games and the Angels struggle we should draw above 4 million

      Forget what the Angels do. If LA has a good season, we'll draw fans to the ballpark.

        Even a 0-162 season the Dodgers will draw some fans

        But 4 million will mean the Dodgers will average close to 50,000 a game. Even if it is hard to type Dodgers popularity is dependent on the Angels and the same is true in the opposite order.

          Contrary to popular belief, Angel attendance has been pretty good over the years. I don't think Dodgers/Angels popularity is necessarily dependent on each other.
