Vermont Attendance

Recommended Posts

Regarding attendance for this game, I am extremely curious to see what the final figure will be. I don't think anyone really knows. Some people say 2,500. Others think 4,000. I think people have suggested the biggest RACC crowd ever.


Bottom line, yes, Big Purple Growls are fun. However, they put so much promotion into it and it is a primarily an alumni homecoming event. People aren't just there for hoops. It could be to see old friends or just to eat the food.


This time, on Wednesday night, people are only attending to see basketball. No, ifs and ands or buts about it. We will find out if the Capital Region is ready to support UAlbany tomorrow. Siena is having a down year. I really hope a lot of Siena fans join the fun at the RACC. As much as the game is about UAlbany, it is about supporting a local product at its highest moment. Something special could happen tomorrow. I just hope as many people as possible jump on the bandwagon, even if it is only for one night ;)

I was at the box office buying tickets this afternoon too, and they said a lot of people from Vermont are buying tickets for the game. A friend of mine who is a Siena fan is reluctantly going to the Siena game tonight. He said he had to go because he has season tickets. It sounded like he was going to the dentist for a root canal.

Not quite off topic, but we need a better ticket management system.


I have used the "ticket office" three times this year and the process is you call them, leave a voicemail and they call you back. Hopefully they reach you otherwise it's phone tag.


If UA is going to bid for the tournament, they need to improve the process for getting tickets.


Some schools, like Vermont and Binghamton allow you to order from their website.
