The WNBA Attendance Database provides a structure for attendance data for every WNBA game. Each game is listed with the following data fields:
- Day of Week
- Day of Month
- Home Team
- Away Team
- Game Type (Preseason, Regular season, etc.)
- Home Team Score
- Away Team Score
- Box Score URL
- Location City
- Location State
There are some limitations to this data at this time:
- Attendance data is not available from the WNBA box scores on their website until 2004.
- Even after 2004, some games do not include attendance data. Preseasons games are especially affected.
- Not all data from the WNBA website seems to be accurate. I have made a first pass at sanitizing arena names and locations, but there may still be inaccuracies.
The data is available for download as a Microsoft Excel workbook here. If you find any errors or have suggestions for expanding or exploring the database, please contact me on Twitter @wbbtimeline or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
