Didn't realize 2015 was that bad. We had 5 of 7 crowds under 30,500. Pitt our "rival" has had 2 of the 3 smallest crowds, and a 3rd in the bottom 8. So far this year we have #75, #91, and #100. We have had 9 crowds under 30k. We have only had 7 crowds over 45,750. We have had only 14 crowds over 43,755. We have only had 10 crowds larger than 42,500 since GRob's 1st game (17 seasons not including 2020). Median is 37,758. Seems like 44k is more than we even need.

No matter what I feel that ticket prices will only go up as time goes on.
Oh yeah I mean everything does of course, but I mean in the immediate sense.

2019 says it all: All but one over 40k after a 10 win season.

Win and people will show up. There were like 9k new STH after 2018, me included.

How realistic is it to come off of a 10 W season, be Top 25 preseason, have a hyped up QB, and have #1 Clemson coming to the Dome? That will not happen often. If it did, then sure we need 44k. But those types of seasons will be once every dozen years. The rest of the time we probably need a 40k stadium.

Say capacity was reduced about 6,000 seats at average cost of $400 for the seasons, they'd have to raise tickets $55 average across the remaining 44,000 to make up for the reduction in seats.

So if they did reduce capacity, which may happen as they renovate the Dome in the next phases, I'd at a minimum expect the average ticket price to go up $75 - $125.

Feel free to check my math, as that wasn't my major.

I think they would go up with the nicer seating. But why would they need to increase by that much if the seats lost are empty every game? Getting 40k in a 50k stadium is no different than getting 40k in a 44k stadium. Same amount of people.

I believe there is an economic term for it in regards to lost financial potential, but again, not my major.

Even if it isn't filled, it potentially can be filled, and that is lost when the capacity is reduced. So future earnings are diminished (potentially).

Plus, it's an opportunity because there is a change, to charge more.

True, the flaw in his logic (no shade) is that it presupposes a sellout every game. Though he obviously doesn’t mean that. I do think the stadium seating will raise prices a tad, but I don’t think it should by much as we the tax payers basically paid for it.

Since Marrone's 1st game in 2009, only four games would have been impacted by having a 44k stadium. Which would have been the only lost revenue. For games like those you can jack up individual ticket sales and not impact STHs. By doing so you likely will also increase STHs, as people see a bargain. Which brings in more money to SU.

Expecting crowds over 44k is fairy dust. You also have to spend a lot more in marketing if you want to try to fill a 50k stadium when you only have 35k loyal fans.

UNC just went from 62,500 down to 50,500 seats. The year before doing so they had crowds of 57,000 and 59,000. The year before that they had a 54,500 56,000 58,000 and 59,000. That is four crowds over current capacity. They actually had demand. We do not.

We have played 108 home games since GRob's 1st game. We have only had 18 crowds larger that 40,833. That is about 1 game per year. At the same time we have had 36 crowds below 34,843 which is just over 2 per season. The other 54 games have been in between. So half of our games are in that 35k to 41k range, a 1/3 are under 35k, and only 1/6 are above 41k.

I think Wagner will fall under 35k. I think NC State will be above 41k. ND certainly will be well above 41k. FSU has the potential to be above 41k if things break right with both team records.

It seems like we are likely to be in that 35k to 41k range most games. Crappy games will be below. Big games will be above. So one game under 35k, one game above 41k, and 4 games in between. I think that is what the typical season will be for 5 to 8 W teams. If we stink, it will be worse. If we are good, it will be better. I don't think we need more than 42,500 capacity.

This is great -- thank you for putting it together. Crazy that Dungey's "coming out party" game was the lowest attended game this century.

Didn't realize 2015 was that bad. We had 5 of 7 crowds under 30,500. Pitt our "rival" has had 2 of the 3 smallest crowds, and a 3rd in the bottom 8. So far this year we have #73, #89, and #98. We have had 9 crowds under 30k. We have only had 7 crowds over 45,750. We have had only 13 crowds over 43,755. We have only had 10 crowds larger than 42,500 since GRob's 1st game (17 season not including 2020). Median is 37,569. Seems like 44k is more than we even need.
Ok, not to be “that guy” because this is amazing work but…..in 2001 we beat BC at home to wrap up a 9-3 season. They had William Green as their star RB. I was there and there was a big crowd, and I don’t see that game on the list.

* I only noticed because I was looking for games that I was at that had big crowds.

Ticket prices will go up because the venue will be more “full”. Consequently, more people will want to be part of the event. Hence, fewer available seats. Supply reduced. Prices up.
They need to be careful after raising prices this season.

Looking at the future schedules I would guess that...

2023
>41k Clemson
35k-41k Army, BC, Pitt, Wake
<35k Colgate, Western Michigan

2024
>41k Miami
35k-41k Duke, FSU, GA Tech
<35k Ohio

2025
>41k None
35k-41k Army, BC, UNC, Pitt, VA Tech
<35k UConn

2026
>41k Notre Dame
35k-41k FSU, Louisville, NC State, UVA
<35k New Hampshire, UConn


If a team is in the Top 25 then they likely move from the 35k-41k bracket to the >41k bracket. Most likely we are looking at 1 game per year.

I think we are better off putting in really nice seats in the A sections. Then good seats in the B, C, and D sections. In the $225 sections and $125 upper sidelines (which get bumped up to $225) add decent seats. For the $125 corner and end zones keep the bleachers but provide seat cushions. $99 seats and student sections are bleacher only. So for BBall the A-C will be those real "decent" seats. D level will actually have better seats.

If adding all of that gets us down to 42,500 then so be it. No reason to keep capacity much higher when only 1 game a year is likely to surpass that number. And with the smaller venue you likely see a bump for those 35k-41k games. We could actually see a few sell outs with the other games above 40k.

Since how many will we get for XXX is of such interest I figured might as well centralize this in its own topic. Starting in 2000 until today...

I'm convinced that basketball competes with football. People think it doesn't because they're different seasons of the year but how many times can the same people drag themselves up that hill? Probably the people in the good seats also have good seats for basketball which makes it look even worse. Reducing capacity is a no brainer but I don't know how you do it without messing up basketball. You want each seat a little more spread out for football but not basketball

Thanks I missed that one and one other. Double checked and looks all good now.
