The graph above shows the attendance rate for the Chicago Cubs baseball team. The graph displays rates for the years of 2007 to 2016.

As with any sports teams, you win and you lose. Those two factors potentially hold the most value to any sports team attendance rate.

In 2007, the Cubs had a total 85 wins. As seen in the graph, there was a rise in attendance the next year. This is due to the face the Cubs were winning games; 97 wins in total.

Moving forward, the rate would drop for many years. After 2008, the Chicago Cubs year-by-year wins would drop until 2012. A change was needed to bring fans back to the games to watch the Cubs win. A change in players, upper management, and a new found enthusiasm for winning, would aid to the teams attendance rate back to where they were in 2007.

From 2014 to 2016, attendance rates were beat year-after-year; 97 wins in 2015 and 103 wins in 2016. Although one can argue there are many factors that could aid to attendance, such as the extensive stadium remodeling. But, at the end of the day fans simply want to see their team win.
