During the 2015 season, the Pittsburgh Pirates welcomed a record number of fans through the gates at PNC Park as the Club's fans set the franchise's single-season attendance mark for the second consecutive year with 2,498,596 fans. An average of 30,847 fans filled PNC Park over 81 regular season home games as the Pirates also registered a record number of games with crowds of more than 30,000 with 51, a total that tops the previous mark of 47 set during PNC Park's inaugural 2001 season.
The 15th season in PNC Park was filled with milestones on the field as the Pirates won 98 games for just the sixth time in the Club's 129-year history. The Pirates' 53 home wins in 2015 were the most by the Club since the 1992 season and marked the third consecutive year that the Pirates won 50 or more games at home. This was the first time in Club history that the team won 50 or more games at home for three consecutive seasons.
"We thank our fans for the remarkable support that they have given us so far in 2015, from Gerrit Cole's first pitch on April 13 to Mark Melancon's last strike out on October 4," said Pirates President Frank Coonelly. "Thanks to our proud and passionate fans, the atmosphere at PNC Park is the best in baseball and the driving force behind the Club's outstanding home record."
