Its unlikely UC will get any ticket revenue beyond the rental fee paid by US Soccer. This is completely separate from their deal with FCC.

Yeah, typically USSF takes almost all ticket revenue, and pays a flat fee to the stadium. Also, there's your reason why Women's games have ****** attendance.

Quality games sell well but NZ is not a quality opponent. Nor is this an important game or even a game leading up to an important tournament. This is a low tier friendly which they will get a decent but not great crowd for.

The argument that the USMNT and USWNT tickets are significantly overpriced for this level of game has been going on for a while.

Apparently already sold 20k tickets.

Hmmm...I wonder what the rental agreement for this game is?

Did I correctly read that 20,000 tickets were sold in 24 hours? That can't be right.

Right now Cincinnati is going crazy for anything soccer. 20,000 show up here while they play other teams that dwell in the equivalent of a high school stadium.

I just noticed that the Valencia game on Monday is not sold out. And I don't recall seeing any announcements about ticket sales.

Last I saw it was at 15k+ from a tweet not too many days ago. I'm guessing 20 to 25k for that one, but that may be generous. What with the open cup run, the league play, and the USWNT, the Valencia game hasn't got much pub.

Will fans be allowed to set off red and black smoke bombs since FCC fans can set off smoke bombs?

Are the rules for fan behavior different for NCAA events vs. pro sports events?

RE: Nippert Defilement - Saw it Tonight
A few things.. as a Bailey Season ticket holder.. there is NOTHING better than bringing a few close friends to the game I so dearly love, that they have ribbed me about for years, and turning them into soccer fans. I got a text from 2 of them this week asking if I had an extra Bailey ticket or 2 so they could come to the friendly tonight.... I understand it isn't for everyone.. but for a guy who loves energy, and enjoys being really tuned into the game I love the Bailey, the flags don't block views except when nothing play wise is happening(beginning of game, or end of game), otherwise people behind you take your flag.. also I am 6'5" so the leg room in the non GA portions of the stadium are poopy for me

Go to a game, give it a chance, I can assure you Baseball is less appealing to most of the millennial crowd and younger. The game(barring Weather delays, which aren't as common as they would seem this year), are usually at least 1 hour shorter than a baseball game. It also has a much higher "ball in play ratio" with nearly constant motion on the pitch due to lack of normal timeouts, unlike football where the play is actually only happening for 11-15 minutes during a 3 plus hour period..

I love football, but everyone I have brought to FCC, who were even ANTI-soccer previously, have all turned into at least enjoying going to the games..

Yeah low 20s should be about right. Its a different situation compared to last year vs CP.

someone at fox19(iirc) tweeted they were already close to 20k.. so should push that higher end no doubt..

23k. That figure put overall attendance past the 300k mark and over 20k/match for all matches (USL, USOC, Valencia)
