I think we will.  It's taking longer than I would have suspected, but people are starting to come out of their covid shells and attend things in person again.  A club I'm involved in is finally getting some decent attendance.  It's not just that being covid-scared that kept people away, it's that people got into the habit of sitting on their butt at home.  People need to get back in the habit of going out.  A CFL game is the perfect place to go.  I think people are getting back their appetite for going out.  That horrifically long winter may be part of it.

Less than a month till PS kickoff!  Woot.

Than last year? What are you guys talking about?

Last years attendance was about as good as you're going to see. We made over $5 million as a club.

We had one dud in the middle of a rainstorm when the crowd looked mid.

I was thinking we were talking CFL-wide, not just IGF.  However, I think even IGF can surpass 2022 attendance.  Trust me, there were still a lot of covid-scared in 2022.  People are eager to go out now.  Even the WHO just admitted the pandemic is over.

As for WPG, we're coming off the 3rd straight GC appearance, into a "revenge" year, with our team stronger than it's ever been in this multi-year run.  We'll have the best O in the league.  If weather cooperates, I don't see how we can't do better in attendance.

Yes I was talking about CFL as a hole

Yes I am also hoping for bigger crowds for Bombers

Bomber store said months ago season tickets were going well

My bad, I was definitely talking about IGF.

League wide, I'm hopeful that Edmonton, BC, and Montreal can pick it up a bit. Although BC is in tough without Rourke. Just an absolute shame he didn't stick around.

Don't think any other team really has hope to improve.

Calgary is still a shocker to me still. No one even cared about Covid out there so you cannot use that as an excuse. I am guessing that stadium is so bad people do not want to go.
Calgary is dumb when it comes to pro sports venues.
Saddledome is pathetic and seems to be ever in limbo.
Stamps new home seems to be a complete after thought.

Overstated a wee bit imo
Many in Alberta cared about covid, but yes less as it's right wing heaven
Calgary agree has a venue issue for Stamps
New arena coming for Flames

I certainly don't have any reason to think otherwise.

I'll be going to the Bomber game there this summer. I'm really curious to see how crappy it is in person, lol.

Not particularly good news for the Riders or the league...

CFL Attendances

@1CFLAtt
Saskatchewan

#Riders STHolder base is at a low. Their home opener also has well over 11,000 empty seats currently vs. their rival, Blue Bombers. Yikes

It's going to be tough ssn again in Saskatchewan to sell tickets.

I think the early start to the season is going to negatively impact crowds early on.. people just aren't used to getting into football this early. Hopefully it will mean better attendance later when the weather will likely be better than in late November. One thing in the cfl's favor is that there are no remaining teams in the nhl playoffs
This year if toronto winnipeg and edmonton had gone further it would have made the cfl rethink this.
