SC Bern Close to Equalling Record Year – Tops European Attendance for 6th Straight Year
German DEL-leagues Kölner Haie is the perennial number two, finishing in that position for the sixth consecutive year, this time with an average of 12.711 fans in the 18.502 KölnArena. Another German club, Adler Mannheim, set a new club record with 12.688 fans in the brand new 13.600 SAP Arena. The DEL plays a 52-game season. KölnArena and SAP Arena are the venues for the 2010 IIHF World Championship in Germany.
Sweden’s Frölunda Indians (Gothenburg) and Germany’s Hamburg Freezers are the only other European club who draw plus-10.000 crowds to their home games. Russia's Amur Khabarovsk is the only Top-25 team that has sold out every home game in their state-of-the-art 7.100 Platinum Arena.
