Re: FAU average tickets

I think the average in seats is more like 10,000 with tickets sold closer to 12,000.

Pretty pathetic either way you look at it.

GO OWLS!!!

I disagree. FAU is a very new program that plays in the worst stadium in I-A far from campus. We have no longstanding rivalries. Until this season, we have never had a I-A OOC game at home. Despite this, we have 10000 dedicated fans at games. Compare this to other SBC and MAC programs who have been playing football for a century and still struggle to consistently attract fans.

There are a lot more students living on campus now. Once we have a new on campus stadium attendance will be fine.

You take these things way too personally. I am not knocking the fans that go to the games. I think it is pretty sad that FAU can only draw 10,000. This is especially true when FAU plays at Dolphin Stadium. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't have so much to do with the university as with South Florida in general. Fans a fickle. Miami has a hard time selling out unless they are playing a big rivalry game. Plus there is tons of competition for fans. UF, FSU, Miami, etc. It makes FAU football a hard sell. Once on campus I am sure that things will change dramatically.

You are certainly wrong about the bolded and underlined part.  We played Oklahoma State at home in JRS about 3 years ago, maybe we didn't play them at Lockhart, but the attendance certainly wasn't much better and it was a home game that was nationally televised on a Thursday night.

Whether it is 7,000, 8,000, 9,000, or 10,000, it is still weak. Hopefully this game sparks some interest from casual fans and they start to show up on a regular basis.

SigEp,
Games at Dolphin Stadium are considered at a neutral site, so they are not technically "home games".
