That can't be right as it only holds 10k increasing to 16k when the new stand goes in.  

Edit:  9,118 according to other sources which makes more sense.

Yeah, they have something like 7k season ticket holders

In 10 yrs time attendances at grounds will mean nothing. 

 The PL aren't really interested in bums on seats as its international markets that count. In the lower leagues most will 'consume' the product on the internet.

Attendances at grounds mean alot to elderly supporters but soon most wont be bothered


Title: Re: Attendances

I don't think the lower leagues can survive on internet streaming. Demand won't survive and the revenue isn't there

with a minimum of 100M prize money in the premier League bums on seats don't really matter now

not a great result but these things happen

  a separate attendances thread might be something to think about in future. wading through posts on the figures for other clubs isn't my thing

Im sure football grounds and going to football will even be a thing in 10 years.

Technology and a camera and you can stream to all your fans remotely anyway.
All youd need a top grade 4G pitch, hell put it indoors as well. No postponements. Then you dont have the cost of owning/renting land, owning/renting a stadium, maintenance, match workers, policing, stewards. In theory no cap on tickets you could sell (home or away)

Only thing youd really lose out on is actual match day income from things like the car park, food and hospitality but I imagine youd save more by not needing a stadium.

My thought was that attendance numbers won't give people the jollies that they seem to do at the moment. Being able to stream on Saturdays may see streaming overtake physical attendances. With that, if the Crawley type approach ever took off in the lower leagues you may have more supporters who can only consume content on the net.

Look what hosting a football event did for German attendances, they never used to get anywhere near the crowds they get now.
Cheap tickets and bigger crowds would be great, but stupid salaries have put paid to that.

I see Reading's attendance is still plummeting. Hopefully they'll be back to their rightful place in League 2 before long.
Although they got more than Millwall today. Only just over 7000 watched them play Sheff Utd who must have brought a fair old whack too.

It goes to show the season ticket holders aren't interested and the FA set the ticket prices way too high.

It's difficult to maintain a local rivalry with a club you don't get to play games against.

Which is why Reading are so desperately forcing rivalries with teams. Their traditional rivals are Aldershot.

So Im not disputing your statement. However, are you 100% sure why Reading are so desperately forcing rivalries with teams? Can you expand on who Reading are? The club? Or the fans?

Im not trying to be a pedantic twat. Allegedly being a Right Wing Facist & Racist Tory Cunt I dont need to be. I do like to at times drill down to where statements originate from. In this case I doubt it is the Guardian, Independent, Daily Mirror or any Far Left rag. Ive not read anything in the Big Issue I purchase from the poor East European lady who sells them where I work

Looking at Reeding as a club AKA the catchment area and the ground it makes me think about our beloved STFC. In our wildest dreams with what we have in terms of catchment area, footprint (yes that means the ground, T/E car parke etc) what can we achieve? Weve been in the PL once. Look what it did to us.. Id say on what I have said puts us just ahead of Bournemouth.

Assume we become a Wiltshire version of Reeding, how long is that going to take? How much money? Where is that coming from?

I realise my post has moved on a bit from the post I was referring to but over the last few weeks I have been asking myself a lot of questions about my blind loyalty to this club.


Title: Re: Attendances
Post by: ChalkyWhiteIsGod on Saturday, January 7, 2023, 20:53:20
The fans of Reading. They're essentially Rival-less. I'm not even sure if they've played the pheonix club of their traditional rivals Aldershot.

Spotty virgin Reading fans who weren't even born the last time we played them sing about us. Its.....weird.
