Aviva English Premiership Attendance – The League in 2017 enjoyed a ten-percent plus increase over 2016. Some of this rise came from the Wasps, which lead the league. But here’s a statistic for USA business people examining a domestic pro league; Wasps averaged 18,660 for home games, which comprises a lot of fans. Yet, this tally represents 57-percent of total capacity of the Ricoh home stadium that seats 32,609. Wasps vs. Saracens drew 30,115, or 82-percent of capacity.
