February 3, 2023 | Sydney Flames news

The Cygnett WNBL is experiencing record crowds this season, with game attendance soaring above pre-pandemic levels.

After round 12, WNBL attendance is up 25 per cent in comparison to the 2019/20 season.  


Crowds are up across the country, for all teams, including multiple sell-out crowds at the Boom Box (Melbourne), and new record crowds at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena – set during the Hoops Capital side’s game against Southside on January 18.

The previous record crowd for a WNBL game stands at 7,500, a record the WNBL is aiming to break at the historical John Cain Arena matchup between Southside and Sydney this weekend 

Since the success of the 2022 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup, women’s basketball in Australia has seen an influx of new fans.

From affordable tickets to post-game meet and greets with the players, the WNBL experience is one that appeals to not only basketball fans but sports fans in general.  

With just four rounds left of the regular season, make sure you get down to support your local WNBL team and witness our world-class athletes in action.
