Structured data parsed from Wikipedia. Attendance In 2012, average attendance per game dropped from 7,955 to 7,457 ( 6.3%). Attendance per game stayed consistent at around 7,520 per game. In 2015, the WNBA's attendance per game decreased by 3.4 percent to 7,318. This was a record low for the WNBA since it was created in 1997. Many teams have experienced drops in their attendance; (San Antonio Stars: 37.4%, Washington Mystics: 7.9%, Tulsa Shock: 7.2%) these losses have caused the attendance of the WNBA to drop. President Laurel Richie stated that after the 2015 season ends, they will create an expansion committee and begin evaluating if and how the WNBA should go about expanding their reach. The 2018 season had the lowest average attendance in WNBA history. However, about half of the decline in attendance from 2017 to 2018 was due to the New York Liberty moving from Madison Square Garden to the much smaller Westchester County Center. While the Liberty had averaged over 9,000 fans in 2017, James Dolan, then the team's owner, noted that roughly half of the team's attendance in that season came from complimentary tickets. At least one writer speculated that team moves—both relocations to new markets and moves to new arenas in existing markets—have made it difficult for WNBA teams to maintain fanbases. For example, of the 12 charter WNBA teams, only five remain in their original markets. An example of relocation within a market is that of the Chicago Sky; although they have never moved from the Chicago market, they have had three different home arenas. 1997 1998 1999 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 LA HOU NY HOU 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018
