You hit it! I can rattle off countless DMV ‘Hoos that are former…

season ticket buyers that no longer want to attend games. Every game can be seen on any screen/device, none want to drive 2 1/2 hours+, battle traffic, secure a hotel room, etc., when they can enjoy watching from far more comfortable environs.

This dynamic has been happening over the past decade at both the college and pro levels. UVA alums like winning, but so many are not obsessed football fans.

The years of consistent big crowds after stadium expansion was an aberration that intersected with the end of Welsh’s success, a new/updated venue, Groh hype, and some games not televised.

We live in a much different marketplace today. UVA earns twice as much from football TV payouts compared to ticket sales. In 2004, UVA’s ticket sales revenue was nearly 4 times what they received from ACC TV payouts.

The conferences sold themselves for TV money, so they should understand there are consequences for that decision. UVA needs to reduce the capacity of Scott. Add seat backs and bring the capacity down to 52K to create some level of demand.
