After 12 rounds of footy in 2018, the NRL’s crowd averages are up by almost 1,000 compared to last year.
The team with the highest crowd averages by almost 2,500 fans is Brisbane followed by Melbourne.
The Broncos and the Storm are the only two teams to crack 20,000 with every other team’s attendance sitting between 10 and 20 thousand.
The Raiders have the lowest average attendance with 11,647 which is almost 2,000 less than the next lowest, Gold Coast.
Despite the Eels, Cowboys and Bulldogs occupying the bottom three spots on the NRL ladder, all three clubs have respectable attendances so far this season, although that’s the opposite for the second-placed Panthers.
Despite a home stadium capacity of over 22,000, Penrith average just 14,000 fans during their games this season.
