MLB Projects Full-Year Attendance Spike

Jun 19, 2023

Major League Baseball’s attendance resurgence is on track to hold for the entire 2023 season.

Following this week’s owners meetings in New York, commissioner Rob Manfred said that after the league jumped out to a strong start at the gate, internal projections point to a full-season attendance lift of 6% to 8%.

That increase would meaningfully reverse a 2022 total of 64.56 million — MLB’s lowest unrestricted figure since 1997, the league’s final season at 28 teams before adding the Tampa Bay and Arizona franchises.
