At tonight's 2-1 men's soccer win over CCSU in OT Hartford had a crowd of 1504 in attendance. Hope they did some marketing to get these kids over to the basketball games.

Binghamton soccer can get crowds in the 2000-3000 fan range against rivals in their 4 year old soccer stadium and average nearly 1900 a game. People are getting excited about baseball for next season too, now that a new baseball stadium was recently completed.

During homecoming it gets packed, which obviously happens because they have no football team. Those games are very, very fun to be a part of, though. And of course the new baseball stadium will open up the year after I graduate!

SBU soccer doesnt draw more than 1k at LaValle but to be fair... Lacrosse gets more on average about 1,500 per game which is not bad

Northeastern had 1500 fans for a win over Harvard over the weekend. Even more impressive was that 1500 students found their way from campus to Parsons Field.

The Hartford Women's Soccer team did well too. They had 1053 attend the 4-0 win over Holy Cross on 9/13. Not quite sure
what these teams have done to spike their attendance.

Maybe because Hartford, Bing, and Northeastern don't have American football?

It's overwhelmingly that. Our marketing efforts are for FOOTBALL one and only. And they're working - attendance is up this season, and very likely to be even greater once we get CAA teams here.

All in all, attendance is good no matter what the sports. Visibility = dollars = prestige..in some order like that.

Last two posts= also explains reasons why Binghamton also leads in basketball attendance every season.

Not only is basketball its only winter sport, it's the main sport period.

Could be that. I would still like SBU to develop its soccer following. We are putting really good teams out there. I think we are one of the top 70-80 teams in the NCAA. Both W&M are playing great. An average of 700 is not bad for soccer but ideally it would be awesome if it was in the 1k-2k range.

In terms of Football. Yes, LaValle has gotten great crowds for the past 10-12 games ( with the exception of the Coastal Carolina game last year with the Snowstorm). Even the Pace game (DII) got over 4000 fans out there. Homecoming next week should be a sellout and perhaps even record-breaking
