Does Only KU Sell Out Home Games?



  • Turn on Baylor’s home game on ESPN2 and you will see the stadium is only half full. The Number 9 team in the country doesn’t sell out a home game. Are you kidding me?



  • I think the answer, most of the time, to your question is…Yes, only KU. With a few exceptions…mainly when we go on the road! I notice this all the time when I watch other B12 games.



  • @Hawk8086 maybe ISU



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Probably most of the time…I did see a game this year…I can’t remember which…where they had a fair amount of empty seats upstairs.

    I think his point was that KU is the only team that sells out OTHER teams’ home games. (If I’m understanding correctly)



  • I was at the ku game in Manhattan and there were empty seats. Not a lot, but not a sellout either. I ve see ku play at every b12 arena but ou and tx tech, and their were empty seats every time. Maybe WV sells out, but then again they don’t count as real b12.



  • I’ve been to games in Austin, Waco, and College Station enough to say that if KU is on the road for a midweek game, it’s probably not selling out. I would say that probably 90% of the Saturday games in those venues were sellouts.

    Probably reality in all venues except for AFH for KU.



  • I believe there is some quantum physics involved here. (I know I feel like subatomic particulate matter while watching games in AFH)

    No question, there is a constant high demand for tickets to KU games in AFH.

    Supply and demand largely determines prices on the secondary market.

    Fans that don’t have regular season tickets clamor for ANY tickets.

    Kansas games with “less talented” teams strangely often end up having almost equal demand than the games with “more talented” teams.

    Why? Because there are so many fans that can’t pay the super high prices for the big games so they circle the smaller games and then go on the hunt.

    This is my theory. I bet you could be a student in just about any area and create a quality study relating to games in AFH… (hint)



  • I know back many many years ago I’m talking long time ago, I pondered the idea at the time of trying to buy season tickets for KU, so I called and I was told I would have to be put on a waiting list and it was like a 12 yr list and that they had , had only like ONE season ticket holder not renew for the following season at that time, I says - -WELP so much for that, lol- - that’s just crazy I was thinking lol. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 If your wallet is big enough they move you right to the top of the list now!



  • @Fightsongwriter YA? well my wallet is not even close enough to being big enough lol. It’s ok though I do ok, I just sit back in my recliner and I can cuss, rant and rave and I’m un-defeated and I can draw up the best plays lol, so works fine, don’t have to fight the crows at the concession stand, got my beer right there, doesn’t cost me 10.00 for a beer so ya I’m fine lol. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 Don’t even sell beer in AFH…



  • @Kcmatt7 I’m just messin man, but I think they you ought to know me by now, If I can’t joke, that’s what keeps me young always have been that way always will -, that’s another good reason I didn’t get season tickets, I’ve got more then enough here in my mini fridge in my man cave and it’s free



  • @jayballer54 Ha well I was just helping you with your negatives column. Couldn’t even get a $10 beer if you wanted…

    I will say I snuck about 6 beers in most games as a student. It is tough to have to sit there for 3 hours. Now, I’m like you. Just have the dog fetch me beers out of the mini fridge at home.



  • @Kcmatt7 Lmao, for sure much easier that way lol. Wish I could train my little dog to do that, but her mouth wouldn’t fit around the can lol. - - So - - I just do the next best thing - -have my wife fetch them for me - - ooops who the hell said that? get myself in real trouble.

    I’m sure also you weren’t the only student that snuck some brewsky in with ya, cotton pickin concession is really expensive, well for a poor man like me anyways lol. But your on the right track now. Like I said I have a perfect record as a coach at the house no matter what sport still haven’t lost a single game lol. If it gets to tight I shut the TV off and see still don’t lose lol. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Here are the Conference attendance figures through yesterday’s games…

  • @JayHawkFanToo Interesting stats. Good grief KU rocks. We sell a lot of tickets home and away. Your welcome rest of the Big 12.



  • @Fightsongwriter K-State sells out every game that has pig-wrestling at halftime (not the cheerleaders, actual pigs) or every game that has a rodeo immediately following the game.
