Lost on some other threads. Now open for this discussion.
UH has led the nation in attendance since the Special Events Arena/Sheriff Center opened in mid 1994.
With the opening of the Nebraska's expanded Devaney Center for volleyball, Nebraska has sold over 7,000 seaxon tickets. Don't have the exact numbers for NU or UH season tickets but ...
there is major potential for NU (or any school) to pass UH for the first time ever. UH's attendance has fluctuated between 8300-plus and the low of 5,944 in 1008 (only time below 6,000). The average has risen slightly over the past 3 years. High was 8,376 in 96.
Last year average 6675 for 19 matches.
UH has not helped itself in the first weeks of the season. Saturday match scheduled for an 830 p.m. start. do not understand how that has happened. It's a triple header that day. they could have easily moved the 6 p.m. match to 5 and UH back to 730. The other 2 weekends have mostly 730 starts for UH, 5 p.m. for other matches. The UH men's matches for tournaments start at 4 p.m. ensuring the UH match starts at 7. why not the same schedule for the Women? but I digress.
Just asking if the attendance record matters with the fans?
