RE: OHIO FB: Sold out for the season?
And here I thought this was a thread from last season or seasons before that was bumped. It seems every season brings attendance records and sell outs, capacity must now be 275,000 based on these annual reports floated here. 03-zzz

Can you please link to a report posted here that has listed capacity at 275,000?

Thanks in advance.

Tickets Remaining:

North Texas 1581
Marshall 2072
Austin Peay 5019
Central Michigan 3846
Miami 3551
Kent State 5298
Massachusetts 5287

From the looks of it right now about 16,500 season+student tickets have been sold.

The student set aside is 6500 with the student average last year 5900 (including mid week games). If the students can turn out big all Saturday games will be sold out.

Kent State will probably hit 20,000 as a big MAC game with the students in town. UMass as a Black Friday game will be the most challenging to sell out. 17,500 for Black Friday would be good progress.
The 2 MAC Saturday home games are Homecoming and Halloween. If the team's record is like I expect it to be, those will be epic crowds.

It is becoming crystal clear that Ohio is the MAC's flagship program.

Must be the facilities.

Yippee, the Bobcats are filling up Peden. When the Huskies and Falcons are playing in Detroit this November, at least you guys can tell people you had twenty-something thousand people in the stands.

eCK: it'd help to have one MAC championship before making that claim. Some of you Bobkitten fans enjoy "throwing dirt on Miami's coffin" with our football ineptitude as of late, but despite the overall horrendous conditon of our program most years in the last decade (and it is really bad) we still have two MAC football champsionships (2003 and 2010)....and how many does OU have in that 10 year period?

Are season tickets through the roof at Central Michigan? They went 4-4 in the MAC an won their bowl game last year so I should expect a similar 47% increase like Ohio.
So last summer they already had 20000 season tickets gone by now and this 47% increase takes them up to almost 30000 tickets. Congrats Ohio, the undisputed flagship of the MAC!
