Braves' attendance at Turner Field in 2016

The Atlanta Braves in 2015 averaged 25,017 fans per game. In their final season at Turner Field, Atlanta's MLB franchise pulled in just a few more fans.

Per MLB policy, since 1993, announced attendance represents tickets sold, not the number of people in the stadium.

The Braves' lowest attendance for a season was in 1975 with 534,672 fans attending a game. (The number reflects actual turnstile count.) The Braves drew 2,020,914 fans in 2016, up slightly from 2015’s 2,001,392 attendance low.

Below is a look at how at the team has fared (If you are unable to see interactive chart, find it here). Hover over the columns to get details on the games and attendance. (Braves' July 3 game against the Marlins, although considered a home game for Atlanta, was played at Fort Bragg, N.C., and not a part of this count.)
