Outlaws Set Single-Season Attendance Record

from press release

DENVER – For the sixth consecutive season, the Denver Outlaws led Major League Lacrosse in attendance, drawing a total of 73,989 fans (12,331 per game). That total represents the highest single-season attendance figure in league history, topping the previous record of 69,806 fans that the Outlaws drew in their inaugural season in 2006.

"The Outlaws have been a class organization from Day One," MLL Commissioner David Gross said. "They have continuously led the league in attendance, bringing fans out to see competitive and exciting MLL action."

"Outlaws fans continue to prove that they are the best fans in the MLL," Vice President of Edge Sports & Entertainment Mac Freeman added. "The record-breaking support this team receives from the community is a major reason why we have earned our sixth playoff appearance in six years."

Highlighted by a professional lacrosse single-game attendance record of 27,184 fans on July 3, the team topped the 10,000 fan mark three times in 2011 – the most games with 10,000-plis fans since the club's first season in 2006.
