Don't expect any more attendance at SF vs where they were.

Hispanics and Millennial families are the base but once the kids grow up it is forgotten. Its not covered in sports radio or TV coverage.

The attendance was not much more than the minor league hockey of the Chicago Wolves that had half of the daily attendance but played many more games.

It will also likely be more expensive at SF vs Toyoda park.

Here is the attendance of the Fire.

Chicago is totally at the bottom only second to last.

Here is there attendance including the years at SF bolded.

There is no growth there only a decline. If they shuttered the team no one would even know about it because it would not even make the daily news.

Its simply a dead sport in the USA.
