Over 5,000 registered players, more than half of them junior players. According to the IIHF website.

The Elite League has an average attendance of more than 2,000 per game. The bigger teams like Nottingham, Sheffield and Belfast have average attendances of more than 4,000 per game. Nottingham v Sheffield games often have attendances of 7,000+.
