I know it's not a direct comparison since it's a completely different league and setup, but what is the average attendance for the Wilmington Sharks? I remember when the Roosters were in town and the attendance is poor.
I would like to add something with the greater Wilmington area factors y'all were talking about. The people in the southern part of Brunswick County would not be likely attending any sporting events in Wilmington on a regular basis. The Pelicans' stadium in Myrtle Beach is an easier drive. There are no issues with parking. The immediate area has better options for dining and other activities. Also, the people who attend the Pelican's games won't have to worry as much about their cars getting broken into and will feel safer walking to their cars after a night game.
I think the other fella mentioned spreading the numbers out to include Columbus County as well. Given an option between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, the residents of Columbus County, at leas as far north as Whiteville, are more likely to go to Myrtle Beach as well.
