Another attendance milestone to report: the York Revolution (independent; Atlantic League) welcomed the two-millionth fan in team history to Santander Stadium.
The milestone comes in the eighth season of operation for the franchise at Santander Stadium.
Based on current attendance trends, the organization expects to draw at least 4,300 fans per game for their 70 home games this season. Attendance has risen 13 percent from a season ago, with between 500 and 600 more fans attending each game this year.
“When we first made plans for our two-millionth fan, we figured this would happen at the end of this month and not early July,” said Revolution President & General Manager Eric Menzer. “But our fan support has been terrific this year, and people have really responded to the increased commitment we’ve made to the promotional schedule and stadium improvements. It’s a pleasant surprise to do this on July 8,” Menzer continued.
An official “2 Millionth Fan” was recognized: Dianne Fox of York. Fox received a prize pack from the organization, including a team-signed bat, an authentic jersey commemorating the 2 Millionth Fan, and spent an inning sitting in the dugout with the Revolution during Tuesday night’s game.
