Re: % of capacity filled at stadiums...

That is not the case. Attendance is people through the turnstiles, not tickets sold. This was confirmed on this very board by Ed G many years ago.

I have to confess I had assumed they count STH whether they are there or not.

There have definitely been games where they have announced 10,000 attendance when at least one or two of our STHs have been absent and their tickets not re-sold.

Changed to number of tickets sold a couple of years back.

Surely the number everyone should be looking for is money received. Not %age of capacity or straight numbers.
