Ducks Sell Out the Season
The Ducks’ sellout vs. Phoenix on Sunday (17,174) will be the club’s 40th in 40 games at Honda Center this year, marking a complete sellout for the 2007-08 regular season. This will be just the second time a local NHL team (Southern California market) has sold out a full (non-lockout) regular season (1991-92 LA Kings at the 16,005-seat Forum).

The Ducks will set franchise attendance records this season for sellouts (40), average attendance (17,193) and percent capacity (100.1%). Sunday’s anticipated sellout will also be the 74th consecutive at Honda Center, extending the Ducks’ franchise record for sellouts both overall and in the regular season (62 regular season, 12 playoff).

The Ducks broke the team record for consecutive regular season sellouts on Feb. 22 against the St. Louis Blues, when they surpassed the previous record of 51 straight regular season sellouts set from Dec. 22, 1993-Oct. 20, 1995. The Ducks currently have the third-longest active regular season sellout streak among U.S.-based NHL teams. Minnesota will finish the season with 287 consecutive regular season sellouts, with the NY Rangers next on the list at 116 (Pittsburgh will rank fourth with 54 straight regular season sellouts at the end of the season). 

This marks the fifth consecutive year the Ducks have increased their average attendance (see chart below). During the 2001-02 season, the club averaged 12,002 fans per game, steadily rising to 13,988 (2002-03), 14,988 (2003-04), 15,131 (2005-06), 16,377 (2006-07) and 17,193 (2007-08). Since owners Henry and Susan Samueli purchased the club in the summer of 2005, the club has seen their season ticket base grow from 7,000 to 15,000 (114% increase), with a waiting list now in place for future season ticket orders…average attendance has also climbed by 2,205 fans per game over the same period, from 14,988 in 2003-2004 (final season before sale) to 17,193 this season (14.7% increase).

Below is a look at the complete attendance history for the franchise, including this Sunday’s regular season finale vs. Phoenix (17,174).
