Maybe minimally, but it's tough to make up $5M-$10M per season


Lets say we're missing 20,000 fans from Scott each home game from where a healthy program would be. Over 6.5 home games/season, that amounts to 130,000 unsold seats per year. If at an average $40 ticket, that's forgone revenue of $5.2M/season. That's the conservative baseline number...top programs charge more per seat, sell more concessions and apparel, raise more booster money, sell more parking passes, etc.

In 2013, attendance at Davenport was 124,000 for the entire season overall. That is nothing to shake a stick at, but a lot of those were $5-$10 tickets. With big coaches salaries, team travel costs, and paying for the massive facility upgrades, I'd be surprised if there is much left over. Should increase with the expansion though, especially through club amenities.
