If true its that's not really that much in the grand scheme they will probably make 10X that.

Is that FAUs entire Marketing budget? I am told if not all it is 90% of budget for the year.

But it can be replaced with even just a decent turn-out in Detroit, not even a sell-out, just 30-40K. 50,000+ would be heaven to FAU!

Thanks, I googled FAU vs MSU sales and it seems only 7K tickets have been sold?  Then I clicked on another link and found this discussion on MSU board.  It seems FAU might be asking for too much per ticket since Detroit economy is in the toilet. I am sure they can market cheaper prices but its less then a mth till the game. It seems at least one owl fan has found this discussion but in case other have not found here is the link

ERROR: A link was posted here (url) but it appears to be a broken link.

Found it?

I started it.

;D

I like the MSU boards, most are decent.

I didnt anticipate it turing into a 8 page thread about thier fan base. i just wondered how they thought about us advertising the game up there and how it would affect sales.


I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

I think most of their fans that commented are missing the point of the target market for this game.  They are saying most students and regular MSU fans won't pay the money and drive to Detroit for the game.  That's not the intention.  The target market is all the MSU alumni in the Detroit area that normally would not get the opportunity to see MSU play.  If we wanted MSU students and regular MSU fans to attend we could have simply played the game at MSU's stadium.

MSU fan sums it up: "Sorry, this game is useless, expensive and no one wants to spend the money in a tough economy to see it."

It's disheartening to hear that FAU spent such a huge chunk of money on advertising this game up in Detroit. But hey, at least we now know we have a marketing budget… because other than the I-95 billboard, I have NO idea what we do with our marketing budget.
