Great Win by the Rush and By the way there were 9,580 at the game, so that is 3 games in a row that there were close to 10,000 fans in attendance.

Nice attendance, maybe the Rush will last longer than the average of 2 years for pro teams in Saskatoon.

Why does everyone on here want to know what the attendance was? So the anti-Saskatoon bash fest can start?

It's the "SASKATCHEWAN" Rush. Get a clue.

Saskatoon has never had a pro team here, there has been tier 2 and 3 semi pro basketball and baseball teams but not the best of the best the NLL is the best of the best big difference. Up next the Rochester Nighthawks with the Seattle Seahawks cheer team in attendance. Let's go Rush.

I went for the first time last night. If you haven't been to a game yet you have to give it a try! It has all the entertainment of an NBA game with the grit of hockey. The music never stops and neither does the action.
