even in zagreb, 90% of sports fans are primarily football fans, and basketball is also a lot more popular than hockey.
medveščak has the highest attendance because people are boycotting clubs under control of criminals who only use them for their own enrichment. that doesn't mean hockey has suddenly become hugely popular in zagreb. medveščak has good attendance, but the general interest outside of those who go to games is quite low. it doesn't come close to the interest that cibona use to have when they were half-decent, not to mention dinamo before it was hijacked.
