The college basketball season has begun, and with it the influx of “prestigious” early season tournaments.  As a result of this, we saw 89 games this week with fewer than 1,000 fans reported.  And that’s just the number that’s reported. Butts-in-seats numbers were probably much less! Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 89 (Season total: 89) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week: 3. Presbyterian vs Johnson University (TN) – Presbyterian, who got their fame a few years back as a new team within D and their willingness to play anyone, anywhere (for a payday) hosted their season […]

NCAA Basketball Attendance: 2017 Weeks One & Two: Out of ...


Time again for your week in review on NCAA Division I Football attendance.  Average attendance was up to 26,460 this week, one of the highest levels of the season. Despite that, three of the lowest attended games of the year happened last week: two of them in the SWAC. Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division I attendance week 12: 789 – Alabama A&M vs Kentucky State. Copying the SEC model, it seems that SWAC teams play lower division teams this week, with Alabama A&M hosting D-II Kentucky State.  With only 789 in attendance, it might not have been […]

Time again for your week in review on NCAA Division I Football attendance.  Average attendance was down to 24,210 this week, the second lowest average attendance of the year. Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division I attendance week 10: 1,136 – Bryan vs Sacred Heart. The Bulldogs managed to hold off Sacred Heart 48-45 in front of a few hundred fans.

NCAA Football Attendance, 2017 Week Ten: 1-7 Kansas vs 0-8 ...


Time again for your week in review on NCAA Division I Football attendance.  Average attendance was up to 24,358 this week, the second lowest average attendance of the year. Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division I attendance week 9: 1,406 – Drake vs Davidson. Despite the small crowd, the Bulldogs took home the 17-12 win. The 1,406 in attendance was good for the 9th lowest attended D-I game on the year, and Drake’s smallest home crowd. However, Drake had played in front of a smaller crowd when they faced Marist (THE MIGHTY RED FOXES) earlier this season. Worst overall […]

Luckily for the crowd of around 1,300, Delaware State pulled off the 17-14 win to get their first win this season and going 1-4 in conference, leaving 0-4 Savannah State alone in the bottom spot. Worst overall […]

Time again to take a look at NCAA Football attendance for the last week.  Average attendance was down to 26,767 this week, with a lot of high attendance programs on the bye. Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division I attendance week 7: 946 – Valparaiso vs Marist.  49-15 Valpo With thunderstorms in the area, few wanted to see the STRONG AND PROUD MARIST FOXES come in to town, and for good reason. Valpo walked away with a 49-15 point lead in front of fewer than 1,000 fans, the first D1-hosted game this season to draw below four figures.  The […]

Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division I attendance week 6: 1,532- Howard vs NC Central.  2-2 Howard hosted 3-1 NC Central in what ended up being a close game.

NCAA Football Attendance: 2017 Week Six!


Time again to take a look at NCAA Football attendance for the last week.  Average attendance was down to 25,514 this week, with a lot of high attendance programs on the bye. Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division 1 attendance week 5: 1,456- Charleston Southern vs Miss Valley State.  With the 0-2 Delta Devils in town, there was little to motivate the Charleston Southern fans to show up, coupled with the third smallest stadium hosting a game this week. The matchup played out as expected as Charleston Southern dominated Mississippi Valley State 58-7. Worst overall FBS attendance week […]

NCAA Football 2017 Attendance, Week Five!



Time again to take a look at NCAA Football attendance for the last week.  Average attendance was down to 25,855 this week, but the bottom got higher across the board! Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division 1 attendance week 4: 1,701- San Diego vs Butler.  Despite the fact that the Toreros won by a score of 38-17, only 1,701 fans showed up to one of San Diego’s only two football options after the Chargers left town to play in front of an empty 25,000 seat stadium.  Perhaps it was the good weather, the lack of draw in the […]

NCAA Football Attendance – 2017 Week 4!


Hey, it’s time to take a look at NCAA Football attendance for the last week.  The good news? Division I averaged 29,810 in attendance last week. The bad news? We lead off with an FCS team playing at an NAIA field, so you know there will be good stuff. We’re talking sub-1,000 fans in attendance. Woo.  Let’s take a look, shall we? Worst overall Division 1 attendance week 3: 300- Trinity International vs Valparaiso on Saturday. Valpo traveled to Deerfield, IL to face the NAIA Trojans of Trinity International, whose field is famous in the turf circles, apparently.  It’s unknown why […]

NCAA Football Attendance: 2017 Season, Week 3!


After setting the season record for longest game of the year last week in the Red Sox and Blue Jays going 19 innings, but the Red Sox decided that six hours was not good enough. This week they beat the Rays 13-6 in 15 innings, but managed to drag the game on for 6:05, five minutes longer than the previous longest game of the week.  Surely Red Sox fans rejoiced at such a prestigious honor. In the world of attendance, even the Rays managed to stay above the 10,000 mark as the entire MLB had a good week. Only the […]
