The population of Perpignan is between 110 and 120,000. Catalonia is a big place and to claim spectators will come from the length and breadth of the area is a stretch in my opinion. Outside of the city it is very rural.
This is not to condemn Catalans, I think they bring a lot to the party, but let's not get carried away with 1.5 m in Perpignan claims.
While 1.5m is probably overstating their reach, the urban area of Perpignan boasts a population topping 300,000 so you can at least attribute them that. Then there is the further reach they have to French RL fans and French sports fans 5watching on TV, buying shirts etc)
