Why Badgers Expect Smaller Crowds at Camp Randall Despite Hunt for the Big Ten Title

Tickets for Nebraska’s Camp Randall games have been among the best-selling Badgers ever since the Kornhaskers joined the Big Ten. The average attendance at the four UW-Nebraska games in Madison was 71,752. The 2011 UW-Nebraska game had the most tickets scanned, 75,971, since the State Journal began collecting this data in 2006.

But the program last week offered $ 20 discounts on tickets for this season’s game, in part due to unsold tickets. Lucas said Tuesday there were between 8,000 and 10,000 tickets available.

At the start of the weekend, UW found it particularly difficult to attract fans, even if they played at a good level. According to UW reports, home games this weekend averaged 61,629 visitors over the past 10 years, despite playing 6th in Ohio (2012), 20th Northwest (2015) and 19th position in Michigan (2017). That match in the Northwest had the lowest attendance at 51,205.

For Purdue, 67,572 tickets were handed out at the start of 2019 weekend and 54,263 were scanned. Secondary market tickets cost less than $ 10 per game day.

The highest number of no-shows this season was at Northwestern, followed by a night game on October 16 against the Army (15,385). UW has missed an average of 14,035 at home this season, up from 12,766 ahead of the Northwest game.
