    Attendance as a Percentage of Capacity

    are you surprised?

    Re: Attendance as a Percentage of Capacity

    Aren't these figures rather meaningless ?

    Surely the only figure that matters is the number of attendees on match day.

    Take Rotherham for instance. They average over 10k for home matches in a stadium that holds 12k. If they had a 36k capacity stadium would you expect them to get 30k every home game, being the same percentage of the capacity ? Of course not, which is why this is a pointless number crunching exercise.

    Well these figures seem to show that our ground is too big for us despite it being useful for a few Wales games

    Well, you wouldn't be saying our ground is too big for us if we were in the Premier League.
    Rotherham, on the other hand, would still find a 30k stadium too big for them, even in the Premier League.

    No difference to Ninian Park for the majority of my time watching City.

    I remember the 'Jock Stein' game which had an attendance of 40000. Next City game which was Bristol City attracted(?) about 4000 which was a decent crowd for that season.

    What's your point here?

    Or another perspective...
    we have been in the top-flight 2 x in the last 11 years.

    I'd rather have something and not need it, than need something but not have it.

    Even if only full for Wales games it’s worth having otherwise the money drains off to rugby. We were at capacity for PL games. I also agree that league table is pointless.

    It's too big for the current dreadful offering Bulut's team offer up but a successful Cardiff City team can fill our ground and sustained success might show the ground isn't big enough.

    But if we ever had a decent owner like the jacks did and stayed up for 7 years it would be full every week.
    Let’s face it, I’m staggered that 18-20,000 people actually give up their Saturday to watch the current shite on offer.
    Yiu recall the mid to late 80’s sludge? 3/4000 beleaguered souls in a 40,000 capacity stadium.

    If the jacks had had 30,000 capacity they might still be there now and they would have stolen generations of fans off us

    I remember the night City beat Spurs in their double season 61/62 there was almost a full house, next home game against Villa there were 12,000, almost 40k difference. Got to say it though the Spurs game was without doubt the best atmosphere I’ve ever known at a City game.

    My point is most of the time the place doesn't look very good

    We needed to move but the place looks terrible with 18000 people in a 33 k capacity

    Plenty of other clubs have quite a lot of empty seats knocking about when I watch highlights on the TV.

    Stoke, Wednesday, Coventry, Birmingham, Swansea and a few more all in stadiums too big for their current attendances.

    As for it not looking good, I'm more concerned about some of the dross being churned out on the pitch thsn an empty blue seat.

    If the football improves perhaps the seat will get used?

    60/61. 45,463. Took City to 6th in 1st Division after 32 games ! Next game H v Blackpool, 19,754. City lost next 5 games, on the beach probably. [Butlins Minehead..]

    Name the red seats the Ninian Premier Stand, and discount them to fiddle the figures, only count them IF we ever get back there. It's effectively closed anyway.


    Also, discount the massive gaps between away supporters that can't be used either.


    Wrexham want 50,000

    Saturday night game, straight after a rugby international in town. People from all over looking for a sporting day out. The Swansea game was a great atmosphere on a Saturday night this season, the win helped mind. Perhaps the City are a Saturday night team, the well oiled fans are certainly up for it

    Man who doesn't go to Cardiff City games complains about the empty seats at Cardiff City games.
