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.
Yes, but you also have to know that since ex-yugoslavia ceased to exist there were no hockey on level good enough to attract fans. We got that with EBEL league and for me it is not suprise so many fans showed up.

In late 80-s Medvescak also had very good attendance numbers, when they won three titles over mighty slovenian duo Jesenice and Olimpija.

You must be some anti-croatian/medvescak fan, don't you ?
