    According to a NorthJersey.com article Iowa State was third in average attendance.

    1. Iowa – 12,568
    2. Penn State – 7,604
    3. Iowa State – 4,795
    4. Rutgers – 4,292
    5. Ohio State – 4,118

    The coaching staff has done a great job in bringing excitement back to Hilton and making every weight fun to watch.

    The attendance gap between Iowa and Penn State is unreal. Especially since they literally are ranked 1 and 2.

    The seating capacity at Rec Hall is listed at 7000 so probably has more to do with venue size than fan base

    Great to see. Just think what it could be if we were in a National Title Hunt! We could easily be pushing Penn State numbers.

    Seems like having Iowa here this year helped our average much more than it hurt theirs. I'll take it.

    2020 Iowa State's Attendance per Meet:

    Bucknell 3,049
    Iowa 11,238
    Chattanooga 3,073
    Oklahoma State 4,403
    West Virginia 3,362
    UNI 5,129
    North Dakota St 3,308

    Average 4,795


    A really good home schedule (Iowa, OSU, UNI) provided for some high attendance meets. What I find more impressive is the attendance vs Bucknell and Chattanooga. This, to me, is a reflection of the core fan base. Record season ticket sales and good marketing leads to no meet attendance below 3,000.

    Average attendance through the years:



    2007 2,453 <-Sanderson

    2008 4,311
    2009 3,016
    2010 4,541 <-Jackson
    2011 2,390
    2012 3,087
    2013 2,455
    2014 3,255
    2015 2,369
    2016 2,545
    2017 3,280
    2018 3,361 <-Dresser
    2019 3,570
    2020 4,795

    Hopefully, we keep this current trend going!

    It's interesting that Kevin Dresser's averages beat Cale Sanderson's....Hopefully the fans will keep coming to the wrestling meets and support the program....

    It will probably take hit but I would guess (and hope) next year’s attendance are respectable despite the lack of the Iowa and okie st and uni on the schedule given the group of seniors last go round

    I do know of 8 others in our town that have asked when I reorder our season tickets and Johnny passes to also put them down.

    And no funky meets at Kinnick for EIU to prop up the stats even more.
