How can you shake up your league to get more people at your games?
It is a funny thing, you go to a play, a concert, a game, and if there are a lot of people there you feel you have made a good choice and are more likely to enjoy yourself.
If your attendance has been staying the same or falling off, decide to do something radical to get people to the next game:
Hers are some suggestions:
Offer your ticket buyers to bring another person along at no cost. Call a radio stations and see if they want it to promote it as their night with their Djs on hand, and give them several hundred tickets to give away on air (making sure they mention your league and the date and time). Contact military bases and offer tickets, try TV stations, contact underserved community organizations (womens’ shelters, children’s homes, etc), and even have your league skate through town with signs and giving away tickets. Obviously you can think of other potential sources, and you point this at just 1 game for all the promotions.
At least you will get larger concession and merchandise sales and you may pack the building and build a new fan base! And please, no slow play or stopping…..show them how exciting Roller Derby is.
