Arizona attendance numbers for 2021-22 athletic seasons are eye-popping
There is no place quite like an Arizona home game.
That’s true in men’s basketball. It’s true in women’s basketball. It’s true in softball. And it’s true in baseball. Arizona shared Tuesday that it finished either as the Pac-12 leader or runner-up in attendance for each of the four sports.
The best in the west 🏜️

The men’s basketball team swept the Pac-12 regular-season and conference tournament titles, earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and is set to have a lottery pick and as many as three first-round selections in the 2022 NBA Draft. That earned head coach Tommy Lloyd a contract extension after just one year on the job.
The women’s basketball team won 20 games for the fourth straight season, earning a trip to the NCAA Tournament.
Baseball made it to the Coral Gables Regional final after knocking out nationally-seeded and regional host Miami.
Softball made it to the Women’s College World Series after a rough start to the conference slate.
Arizona fans were there every step of the way.
It’s shaping up to be a banner year for the athletic department, and it could get better if Jedd Fisch and the football program make good on the offseason optimism and win a few more games next fall. The Wildcats signed a top-25 recruiting class (per the 247 Composite) for the first time since 2006, and there’s hope they can climb up the Pac-12 South standings a bit during the 2022 season.
