Ticket situation

Recommended Posts

Wow this is fantastic. I expect 3/8 to sell out fairly quickly. Last game of the season and both teams doing great in conference so far

Here it is again, in numeric format:

This would raise the season average up to 5230.

Edit: March 8th is a Friday.

Is 5230 a season record?

I think it's close. 

I also think it will all be 100% sold out. Really that Ohio game 2/19 is the only one that might be like 90-95%

Since 2002, the top three are; 4417 in '05, 4280 in '06 and 3791 in '17.  I haven't found any earlier stats.

Prior to 2002, the attendance figures were much lower than those, that's for sure.

This is tremendous! It's always more fun when Alumni Arena is packed. Nice to see the community finally give UB the support they deserve.

With UBs success this year, are all MAC attendance stats up, or at least all games that include UB?

I think it’s evident that everywhere we go arenas will be more filled than usual. Teams and students want the upset against us.

It's clear that ranking, and snowstorms impact attendance, but what else?  Are more tickets sold in February, than are sold in December?  Do more people attend a Saturday afternoon game, or a Tuesday evening game?  I looked at the UB Men's Basketball attendance for all home games played in Alumni Arena going back to the start of the 2001-2002 season, to see if there was anything to learn.  And, here it is:

245 Total games, with an Average attendance of 3055.

3 Weekday day games, with an Average attendance of 1873.

115 Weekday night games, with an Average attendance of 2724.

69 Weekend day games, with an Average attendance of 3198.

58 Weekend night games, with an Average attendance of 3604.

(You guessed it, Mon, Tue, Wed & Thur are Weekdays.   But, you might not guess that I used a start time of 4:30 as the barrier between Day and Night.)

Merrimac, are you suggesting the the Bulls should wait until dark to hold their games? Wouldn’t things get topsy-turvy if they tried that?

Not really, I understand that that is more difficult for families.  I was just sharing what I found.  This year is proving that people will  come out at any time. So far we’ve seen...

9 games averaging 4689.

5 weekday games averaging 3946. (one was a day game, another was a snow day)

3 weekend day games averaging 5426.  (one drew over 6k)

1 weekend night game which drew 6193.
