While a significant number of tickets are still available for many of the New York Yankees' remaining home games in 2006, the Yankees have-for the second consecutive season-already sold more than 4,000,000 tickets for the 2006 regular season and are approaching their own American-League record of 4,090,692 tickets sold in 2005.

To date, the Yankees have sold in excess of 4,001,800 tickets-an increase of more than 258,905 tickets as compared with this date in 2005.

In 2005, the Yankees established an all-time franchise record with a paid attendance of 4,090,692 becoming only the third franchise in professional-sports history to reach the four-million mark in home attendance, joining the Toronto Blue Jays (1991-'93) and the Colorado Rockies (1993).

This season, through the first 42 games played at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees lead the Major Leagues in total home attendance (2,148,092) and average home attendance (51,145). The Yankees also lead the Majors in average road attendance through their first 36 road dates in 2006 (39,500), exceeding the league average by almost 10,000 fans per game.

The Yankees have now drawn at least three-million fans to Yankee Stadium in each of the last eight seasons (since 1999).
