High school athletics depend a lot on sport attendance numbers

Posted: Updated:

Richland, wash.--High school athletics depend a lot on sport attendance numbers. The money is used to help pay for the sports program.

Football brings in quite a bit of money for fall sports. It can bring in up to $18,000 per season. All sports programs combined pay a little more than half the money that is used for the entire athletic department.

More than $90,000 dollars go into some athletic budgets. The top two earners for sports are football and basketball. Community members are encouraged to check out local sports going on now.
