Premier Lacrosse League attendance falls in second week

The Premier Lacrosse League drew just 10,773 fans at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., over Saturday and Sunday, down from 13,681 at its inaugural weekend at Gillette Stadium.

The start-up league continues to show its commercial potential by signing a sponsorship deal with Capital One but the low in-venue crowds represent a cause for concern.

According to the PLL, league-generated content generated 1.2 million total interactions and 23 million total impressions over the weekend.

The touring league travels to SeatGeek Stadium in Chicago this weekend.
