Overall attendance is up this year, 2015, for the New York Mets. Home games are averaging 29,284 fans per game at Citi Field this year, which is up by about a thousand fans compared to last year. While it is good that the Mets have an attendance increase, 29,284 (which is 17th in baseball) is not enough for a New York based franchise. The Mets should be in the top 33% percent every single year, with successful years being in the top 10% percent. This was the case in Shea Stadium, but it hasn’t translated over to Citi Field, which is disappointing. I hope that the Mets to get the attendance up further as they conclude the 2015 season.
One thing is for sure, a successful team is the best way to increase ticket sales, not promotions, not concerts, not lower ticket prices, a good roster is what brings in the dough.
