Bulls Break Record For Season Paid Attendance

Bulls Break Record For Season Paid Attendance

On Saturday, August 25, the Bulls total 2001 season paid attendance record reached 490,490. This number surpassed their best-ever season attendance record of 475,000 set last year.

The Bulls not only broke this record, they had their first-ever Sunday sell-out of 10,007 paid admissions that same weekend. They also had the best Friday-Saturday-Sunday weekend in the team’s history with 30,249 paid admissions.

Now the Bulls are on track to post paid attendance of 500,000 when they play their last regular season game next Saturday, September 1. Only 10 minor league teams in the nation have achieved this milestone.

Durham Bulls General Manager George Habel said, “Our staff deserves the credit for an exceptionally aggressive ticket sales effort and a strong promotional plan this year.”

Bugle Call For the Bulls

The Triangle Brass Band now performs at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on weekends thanks to the Capitol Broadcasting/WRAL Community Fund of the Triangle Community Foundation.

Members play from the concourse (top left photo) and even join Bulls organist Bruce Michaels in a few tunes for the crowd (bottom left photo).

More live music means more excitement in the atmosphere as the Bulls play.
