More than 1.7 million people attended a Cactus League game in 2019, slightly down compared to last year.

“We’re slightly down in 2019 from the previous year, but it's only because of the shorter schedule — and we had six rainouts this year,” Cactus League President Jeff Meyer said.

Each game averaged about 7,900 attendees. The Chicago Cubs are still the most popular team and the Milwaukee Brewers saw the largest increase in attendance this season.
