The Calgary Roughnecks have been working hard to boost fan involvement this season by putting on special events like Friday night’s super hero themed game.
“We’re going to play extra hard especially being at the Dome.”
Calgary has not won a championship title since 2009 but, when it comes to attendance, the club is a sterling example of stability in an inconsistent league.
The club ranks fourth in NLL attendance numbers bringing in an average crowd of nearly twelve-thousand spectators per game and has had one of the most consistent crowds in the league for over five years.
Fans in the city have proven themselves as devoted supporters of Calgary’s team and have formed such a knowledgeable fan base that the players have started to take notice.
“It’s not just the goals, these fans understand the little things that it takes and we appreciate that and we notice that so I think it really does help the guys push themselves a little bit more just to show that we’re going to play extra hard especially being at the Dome.” said Curt Malawsky, Roughnecks Head Coach
Calgary’s final regular season game is set for Saturday, April 20th at the Saddledome.
