Came across this article from Yahoo Finance and wanted it to share it with you folks:
A few notable quotes from the article:
Only hockey among the four major pro sports was able to have greater attendance now than before the Great Recession, despite an overall 17 percent increase in ticket prices - nearly $10 from $48.72 to $57.10 for the average seat - over the same period, according to Reed.
In fact, NHL fans have the highest mean household income compared to MLB, NBA, and NFL fans, with an average household income of $104,000, compared to $96,200 for baseball fans, $96,000 for NBA fans, and $94,500 for NFL fans, according to league data.
They're younger, too. Thirty-three percent of hockey fans are young adults (ages 18-34), compared to 32 percent for the NBA, 30 percent for the NBA, and 29 percent for baseball.
