Since the inagural season in 2000/01, attendance has increased by 69.7 per cent.

Compared to last season, Euroleague’s average attendance of 5,608 is 18.3 per cent up on the end-of-season average in 2003/04.

Said Euroleague CEO Jordi Bertomeu: “Our clubs continue to improve their ticket sales, which is due to a more professional approach to the market and the increasing popularity of basketball throughout Europe. We are pleased, but there is much more work to be done.”
