Top 10 Recent Domestic club championship events

This section lists the most recent attendances at annual championship events (single decider matches, or the final match in a best-of series) by total attendance, and includes domestic leagues and competitions. It has to be noted that the listed crowd figures are usually a reflection of a championship stadium's capacity, as demand for these events is usually so high that any stadium would be filled to capacity.

The table is divided into sports that are meant to be played outdoors and indoors. Included in "outdoors" are events done in a domed or closed-retractable stadiums but are meant to be played in an open stadium, while included in "indoors" are events done in a domed or closed-retractable stadiums but are meant to be played in an indoor arena.

College, semi-professional and amateur leagues

View of the crowd at the 2004 Rose Bowl College Football Game.

This section lists college and amateur leagues by total attendance. Remaining amateurism requirements in the majority of top-level sports were dropped in the late 20th century, and there are now only a few amateur leagues which are of interest to a wide public. In the United States, college sports are very popular and at least one significant ice hockey league retains an amateur requirement. In Ireland, the All-Ireland senior championships in Gaelic football and hurling, both operated by the Gaelic Athletic Association, which continues to prohibit professionalism, each draw over 80,000 to fill Croke Park for the respective finals.[22]

The NCAA championships listed here are all composed of several separate conferences with varying attendance levels. For example, in American football, 2008 per-game home attendances for the highest level of competition, Division I FBS, ranged from 16,727 for Mid-American Conference teams to 76,844 for Southeastern Conference teams (the latter a record for all NCAA conferences).[23]

  • 2 Group stage only
  • 3 This includes all stages except for the Euroleague Final Four. ULEB, the organiser of the Euroleague, does not sell individual match tickets for the Final Four. Each ticket package sold for that event admits the holder to both semifinal games, the third-place game, and the final.
  • 4 Since the competition started in 2005 season, all games were held at Tokyo Dome, Japan. With the major sponsor Konami withdrew from the competition after the 2007 tournament, which caused great financial losses to host the series in 2008. The Japanese organising committee decided to suspend the tournament for the 2009 season, which will replaced by Japan-Korea Champions Contest. After lengthy discussions, Taiwan will host the Asia Series from 2010 onward.

  • 2Although 32 games were played in the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, tickets were sold only for 21 matchdays. The final schedule, which was affected slightly by Typhoon Wipha, saw 22 matches scheduled as doubleheaders—16 during pool play, all four quarterfinals, and the third-place game and final in a single session. However, FIFA took attendance separately for each individual match, and the calculation here reflects this practice.
  • 3World Baseball Classic and World Cup of Hockey are hosted in different regions of the world to boost attendance; as opposed to being hosted in one region like other international tournaments.
