USFL Attendance

We have attendance figures below for all three seasons of the United States Football League (USFL). The all-time single-season record for the league was 46,730 per game the Jacksonville Bulls had in 1984. The Bulls also set a league single-game record with 73,227 on March 4, 1984 against the New Jersey Generals. Some have suggested the strong attendance figures led to Jacksonville being awarded an NFL franchise for the 1995 season.
