Indy Tops Stanley Cup Viewership for Non-Hockey Markets…For Real This Time

June 10, 2010

The rating numbers have been released for Game Six and once again, Indianapolis tops the non-NHL markets. Just like earlier in the series, we tied Detroit in terms of viewership. Indy garnered a 6.3 rating and a 10 share of the market. In other words, one out of every ten households in Indy had the game on. This time there isn’t a banquet on to skew the ratings in the city. In other words, people were tuning in to watch the game in large numbers.

And they say Indy isn’t a hockey market.

    Can we have our AHL team now?

      I really hope after the Ice’s lease deal ends after this season that we get an AHL team.

    An AHL team wouldn’t make it here. There is too much competition for sponsorship and advertising dollars.. Unless, of course, the Colts left town.

      I’m not sold on that. While a hockey team is a very expensive team to have, there has to be enough sponsorship money to support an AHL team in this city. I mean the Pacers are the lowest of lows right now and they’re actually bringing in more advertising money now than in years past. Also I think if there was another major tenant in Conseco Fieldhouse, the price to advertise there would rise, but by many would be considered quite a deal.
