We get more people to our junior c playoff games than that here. will they get a bigger rink, and why do they not sell out. Must be poor marketing. also SKA has I believe the biggest with almost 14000 capacity. How often do they sell out?
NHL rinks have capacity of 20-23 thousand, so realistically khl rinks will have to get bigger although not that big, if they want a healthy financial structure right?
How do NHL arenas range from 20,000-23,000 when only two (2) teams in the league have an arena above 20,000 capacity (Detroit and Montreal)?

Here is the list of attendance figures for all major ice hockey domestic leagues.

1. NHL - 17,265

2. Elitserien - 6,255

3. DEL - 5,867

4. KHL - 5,781

5. Nationalliga A - 5,495

6. AHL - 5,472

7. Czech Extraliga - 5,018

8. SM-liiga - 4,957

9. Central Hockey League - 3,979

10. ECHL - 4,170

11. Canadian Hockey League - 4,102
----- WHL - 4,673
----- OHL - 3,933
----- QJMHL - 3,601

12. IHL - 3,396

13. Austrian Hockey League - 2,928

14. USHL - 2,921

The Slovak Extraliga finds itself in 16th position with 2,840 behind the SPHL (USA) and ahead of the HockeyAllsvenskan (SWE), Oddset Ligaen (DEN) and UPC Ligaen (NOR).
