The oldest available Fan Cost Index is from the 2010-2011 season, in the past two season Coyotes were in the bottom three of average ticket prices and FCI. While this is good for the average fan, it's not so good for the team's bottom line. In the most current FCI report the Coyotes have jumped up to 4th lowest average ticket price, only 18 cents and 31 cents from the Anaheim Ducks and Colorado Avalanche.

Extras is defined by fancostexperience.com as the average price of a 16oz beer, a 16oz soft drink, a hot dog, parking, game program, and souvenir cap.

Many will claim that the reason the attendance is higher is because the 'Yotes have played the Blackhawks twice. While this is true, and the Hawks do draw good crowds, The Coyotes have played other high profile, well drawing teams over the past four years.

In 2009, Phoenix played the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago in the first eight games at home (including a sellout home opener against the Columbus Blue Jackets):

It is good that they're trending up, but bottom 3 to bottom 5 out of 30 isn't exactly much to get excited about.

Another good crowd there last night. Over 15,000 playing against the Blue Jackets which don't have much local support. Therefore, most of the fans were Coyotes fans. Last night was the type of game you like if you have a lot of first time fans in the seats. Lots of excitement. Hopefully, this will encourage them to return for another game.

Yep...I was really shocked how big of a crowd there was for that game.

On the local news last night (forget which channel) they were talking about the attendance and said that last year the average was just over 10,000 at this point. This year, it is over 13,000! Getting better every game.

The excuses for ignoring the Coyotes only seem to prosper with time.
 

Aside from the usual complaints about their home location at Jobing.com Arena in the West Valley, a 113-day lockout that wiped out the first half of this season was a source of alienation that extended across the league.

 

Millionaires argued with billionaires in Manhattan boardrooms, and that was enough for even the most loyal fans to roll their eyes.
 

And then there’s the absence of ownership, which continues to be an easy reason not to embrace the Coyotes.
 

It became an even more accessible one once potential buyer Greg Jamison missed the Jan.31 deadline to purchase the team and save an advantageous arena management agreement with the City of Glendale.

 

But even after a four-month delay to the start of the season and the impending four-year anniversary of ownerless existence, the Coyotes have enjoyed an increase in attendance through the first 10 home games.

 

“It’s just been a building process, essentially,” Coyotes President Mike NealyCQ said. “Multiple years now of a competitive team is really at the basis of this.”

The season-ticket base is also the largest since 1999, Nealy said, and the renewal rate is 90 percent — the highest in franchise history.

 

I was shocked to see that. But making it so far in the playoffs probably helped. When it comes to next year though, they may see a dip from pissed off fans about the lockout. Hopefully not a big one though!

I think the past 2 seasons they've said the renewal rate has been at it's highest every year.  A great sign that every year it's going up.

Someone always has to be at the bottom of attendance, it's not such a terrible thing. I know these people that are fans of the larger market teams love get down on the smaller market guys, but if they think 30 teams are going to average 20,000 a night, they're insane. I'm tired of hearing places like Mississauga and Hamilton as suggestions for NHL franchises.
