    Fan Attendance

    How packed will the United Center be on Wednesday? I'm wondering because me and my buddies are heading down to Chicago to watch it. I saw Illinois vs Gonzaga played there a couple days ago and it looked pretty full (Illini fans)

    Re: Fan Attendance

    Meh, I don't think it will be as full as we would like. I just did a search on ticketmaster for tickets and the best available was on the lower level corner/end. And the best available in the 200 and 300 level were still about mid court.
    So, I'd imagine that the lower sides will be full, the lower ends will be partially full/scattered, and the 200 and 300 levels will be scattered, with a few full sections around mid court.

    Yeah, no way the place will be close to full on a Wednesday night...I'm guessing 10,000 if they're lucky.

    10,000 will be tops for sure. Thought the RAG was projecting 8-9k.

    Re: Fan Attendance

    I wouldn't count attendance by looking at empty seats. There will be about 1,000 cyclone fans in the concourse trying to beat traffic.

    GMac said on the radio post game yesterday that 8k-9k tickets had been sold so far, and they were hoping for a good walk-up crowd to add to that number

    Hopefully that # doesn't include the giveaways that places like that usually do for their NBA season ticket holders.

    Re: Fan Attendance

    We're going. How adequate is the parking around the United Center? If attendance is only 10,000 will there be plenty of spaces?

    8K total or 8k ISU fans?

    I was thinking it would be possible to get 1500-2500 ISU fans to make the trip. Duke should have a lot there too. 9k would be a bigger crowd than I imagined. Good for the clones!

    He didn't specify, but I would assume that's total. I bet that there will be 10-11K in attendance, if not more because that was the purchased amount. I would expect decent walk-up numbers plus the give away numbers.
