    JTS Attendance Streaks

    Just wanted to throw out some attendance statistics of what the crowds have been like historically at Jack Trice StadiumÖ

    • From 1978-1984, attendance averaged 49.3k.
    • From 1985-1991, attendance averaged 42.7k.
    • From 1992-1999, attendance averaged 37.5k.
    • From 2000-2004, attendance averaged 43.5k.
    • From 2005-2010, attendance averaged 46.9k.

    While I know some of us were disappointed by Saturdayís turnout, itís been nearly 30 years since weíve seen this amount of fan support. Thatís a long time of eroding the fan base. Unfortunately, itís going to take a while to build the fan base back up. However, itís heartening to me to look at these numbers and see the increases we have been seeing. Things are turning around and the fans are coming back.
    Stay positive. Keep nagging on family and friends to join you in coming to games. Keep buying season tickets and encouraging others to do the same. I know I could do a better job of this and I bet some of you can too. Itís going to take a few years, but I really have a good feeling about the future. Donít get down about things Ė we are turning this around!

    The announcers were impressed with our turnout saturday night.

    Re: JTS Attendance Streaks

    I think attendance is up next year. UNI and Iowa to start the season, as well as Texas early in the year. All of those games could exceed 50,000. Have we ever had 3 games over 50,000 in one year?


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    We were close in 2007. Both Iowa and Texas were over 50,000. Oklahoma was 49k+.

    I don't think Iowa was over 50K. That was the "season ticket" year. It was like 49. It looked like a full house (and that will happen when you have 46K seats and 3000 people in standing room only). UNI was 57, though.

    Wow, completely forgot about the season ticket "scandal". You're right. The UNI game was almost 57k, the Texas game was 52k and the Oklahoma and Iowa games were both 49k.

    Re: JTS Attendance Streaks

    I think JP and the athletic department made a smart move by having the 3 game mini-pack be the last 3 home games. Our attendance always falls off there, but this year it seemed to help buck the trend. $10 hill promotions were also good.

    Give credit to the fans for showing up as well. A few more good years under CPR and I think we are going to average 48,000+.

    Loved Marty's prediction that that game would draw 35K.

    41,776 - good crowd - we just need to keep building the base.

    Well the wife and I are going from 2 tickets to 4 next year. Not sure what I will do with the extras each week but I assume I can find enough friends who I can drag along.

    Re: JTS Attendance Streaks

    I agree that you need statistics like this to keep things in perspective.

    The sad part is the most recent average was pulled up by 2007 with Chizik. Our bowl win last year seemed to have little to no effect.

    Still a little sad that the most we are hoping for is a return to 30 years ago.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: JTS Attendance Streaks

    ISU was just so terrible for like a good 20 years in football. Seriously, think about that. You've got a state of a couple million people..a team in the same state going to Rose Bowls and other bowl games every year for the same 20 years ISU was in the toilet. We are LUCKY to have the fan support every week that we do.

    JP's #1 priority has got to be GROWING the fan base...not squeezing every dime out of existing base. I think he is doing that (while trying to squeeze every dime). I've said it before..a majority of hawk friends of mine never go to games. Ever. The Iowa fan base is just huge..ours is not. Got to grow the base and I think that starts with getting more students to make the switch like most of did.

    Last time was in 1984 - Nebraska, Oklahoma, and West Texas State.

    Last year we had two - Iowa and Army. N. Dakota St was close at 48.8k

    2007 also had two - UNI and Texas. Was very close to having four - both Iowa and Oklahoma had 49.5k
