Based on pure volume alone, the San Antonio Commanders have the best fans in the Alliance of American Football. According to the NFL Network broadcast, the Commanders announced Saturday Night’s attendance at 30,345 people. This marks the first time any team eclipsed the 30,000 attendance marker and shows that the AAF is a league filled with fantastic promise and a bright future.
San Antonio Commanders Set AAF Attendance Record With Over 30,000 Fans
Texas has long been known for their love of football, and this latest outpouring of support just shows how passionate the state is for the game. The Commanders have been one of the most exciting teams in the AAF, entering Week Seven with a 4-2 record atop the West Division. Boasting a powerful defense and a solid running game, San Antonio took their play to the next level thanks to an improved performance by quarterback Logan Woodside.
San Antonio showed that they’ll support their successful team, eclipsing the 30,000-fan mark in just their third home game of the season. This wasn’t a one-time thing either, as San Antonio’s fans have always been one of the best in the league. The Commanders brought in 27,857 fans to their season-opening game back in Week One. San Antonio improved on that performance in Week Two, bringing in 29,176 fans for their Week Two showdown with the Orlando Apollos. And now, despite the extended road trip, San Antonio broke their own attendance record for the third consecutive game.
San Antonio is running laps around the rest of the league in terms of attendance. Entering Week Seven, the average AAF game only brings in 13,783 fans per game. This average is on the rise, however; it’s clear that San Antonio is doing the best job at putting fans in the seats. Perhaps it’s this significant home-field advantage which has helped San Antonio go 2-1 in home games, with their lone loss coming to the 6-1 Orlando Apollos.
