All-Time W-League Attendance

Here are attendance figures for the USL’s original W-League, which began play with a “test season” in 1994 and launched fully in 1995 and lasted 20 years. From 1998-2001, the league was split into “W1” (upper) and “W2” (lower) divisions based on budgets and aspirations, but there was no formal promotion and relegation scheme between them. The league suspended operations after the 2015 season, but has recently been revived as a lower-level league to USL’s ambitious Super League.

These numbers are from the official totals and averages published by USL in its annual media guides, with some math errors corrected. Data for a handful of teams is missing, obviously, and I need to get 2012-2015 added to this.
