In 2016, the team saw 3, 232 420 people over the course of the season at Wrigley Field, with an average of 39,906 people per home game.
After 108 years of long-awaited anticipation, Chicago Cubs fans finally got to see their team win the World Series again in 2016, which sent the city into an uproar of celebration for several weeks.
In 2015, the year before the World Series, the Cubs saw 2,919,122 people visit Wrigley Field. Attendance has slowly decreased since 2016. However, attendance per home game is more than it has been since the World Series. Are the Chicago Cubs seeing an influx of bandwagon fans?
