Sydney Kings attain new NBL attendance record
The Sydney Kings set a new NBL attendance record after 17,524 fans turned out for the team’s 92-87 win over the Illawarra Hawks at Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday afternoon.
With the Kings extending their league-leading mark to 9-1, the attendance topped the previous high of 17,143, which was set more than 20 years at the same venue.
Advising that the crowd and atmosphere was close to the NBA as Australia has ever seen, Kings Head Coach Will Weaver commented “it’s big for our team, it’s big for our city, it’s big for our state, it’s big for our league.
“What we’ve all come here to try to achieve, it’s big. It’s a big symbol of what we’re trying to do, is get people excited about basketball, and help people that are already excited about basketball understand there are great things to watch here.”
The Kings travels to Melbourne in Round Eight for a confrontation next weekend with the NBL’s newest franchise, the South East Melbourne Phoenix, at Melbourne Arena.
