Capacity question
happyH 08 September, 2019 10:09
Noticed on site says now 22,000 sold for Barf game, so being a sado i went on our site and counted up the remaining seats available which was 954 seats.
So, the question is... i thought the capacity was 28,000 ish so where are the missing 5,000 seats??

Anyone any ideas?

C'MON BRISSSSSSSSSSSSS

I think the club like, where possible, to sell out one block before another is released for sale. This helps stewarding. So although a block may look sold out and is therefore currently unavailable, as sales proceed that block will be released. Just a thought.

The total capacity is just under 27,000 assuming that there isn't any segregation and/or unreserved seating areas. In such cases, the loss of seats is the area of segregation and/or 10% of the unreserved seating area.
When a near capacity crowd is anticipated, the club only release the upper Lansdown in small segments, mainly because it's the best way to minimize odd seats remaining unpurchased.
The same may also relate to Bristol matches when the Atyeo is used only for total capacity matches.

Might it also be that some tickets shown as sold on the website and actually currently unsold but with Bath to try and sell to their fans?
