Attendance is down at all levels across the country. People would rather tailgate at homecoming than to actually attend the game. I have read that it will only get worse.



 :nod:



I think you're definitely right about that. I attribute that to the newer alumni 30ish and younger plus folks who just show up for parties like they do at the CIAA basketball tournament. It is what it is I guess.    :shrug:

HBCUs need to heavily invest in streaming of their games on social media

So anyone notice how much we draw vs everyone else, looks like NCCU played for a crowd less than a high school rainy night. Was that 1000 including the teams, band and cheerleaders?

In those SWAC folks eyes, A&T never travels and we don't have a fan base. Numbers however show an attendance spike everywhere we go. But hey , let them think what they want

Too bad there's not a spike in fan in Aggie Stadium.

If fans in the general area arent going to physically attend the games, they aren't going to pay money to watch them online.

HBCUs with declining attendance need to stop being lazy and reconnect with their fan base and improve the Gameday experience. A lot of this just boils down to pure laziness on our parts, especially from these research Intensive universities.

We may need to look at our prices.  Game day $30 may be a bit much or the community we serve.  I just saying. 
Whether great or small, victory is victory!

Why the focus on our attendance when we are generally top 5 amongst HBCU's? Season to date we're averaging 18,141 which I believe at this moment is tops in the MEAC. Anyways here's a ten year look back on our attendance ranking amongst HBCU's. Not too shabby when you consider there are 9 football playing HBCU's in this state. Who else has that much competition for the same dollars?
