Playoff attendance

Post by LICKING COUNTY FAN » Sun Nov 10, 2019 4:01 pm

My brother went to the Reedsville Eastern at Newark Catholic game.
He said tickets were now 9 for the first round and in the almost 40 years he has attended football games, this was the smallest crowd he had ever seen at a Newark Catholic playoff game.

Yeah it surprised me to see $9 on the ticket box as I walked up. I just told my boy he's not eating or getting anything to drink now, ;). Seemed like the stands were pretty full at the waverly and gallia game last night, which with Ironton and Burg both having home games and Trojans traveling as well, I think the attendance was pretty good really.

I drove to Ridgewood last night and there side was packed. Portsmouth side looked pretty full for a 165 mile drive. 9 bucks surprised me too.

I was at New York section 6 championship ticket price 10 dollars on Sat gets you 3 games. Parking free with the games being held at New Era Stadium home of the Buffalo Bills. Ohio and Kentucky can learn from New York.

Talk to a few fellows in New York and they said at high school stadiums they usually pay 5 bucks for playoff tickets and parking is always free.

Went to Paint Valley on Friday- knew tickets were $9 but did not plan on paying $5 to park- so it was $14 to attend the Paint Valley/Grandview Hts game.

$5.00 to park at a High School? Waverly is a steal at $2.00. Do they charge $5.00 for regular season games?
I think $9.00 for a first round playoff game is ridiculous especially when the host school gets NONE of it. Are most fans going to pay it, yes. Does that make it right, NO.

WOW, I thought they were only allowed to charge for parking if they charged during the regular season. I went to a game at PV this year so I could see the new facilities and was NOT charged a parking fee.

Went to a game there this year to see the place and no there wasn't a charge for parking.

I was told by a coach that the OHSAA pays no attention to the parking rule, so schools do as they please.

Kind of figured that, as there's no way someone from OHSAA is going to go around checking all of that. To busy marking up the ticket prices :lol:

The OHSAA is all about making money. Though Jerry Snodgrass responded to me on twitter and said that the schools make their own prices for regualr season ticket prices and parking.

I got to thinking after paying the $5- did the Paint Valley fans not have a problem paying $5 to park? And now I hear they do not pay to park during the regular season? OHSAA should not be upset that attendance if dropping.

Under Section 4, Game Administration Outline

16. Concessions and Parking
All concessions and parking will be operated under the direction of the game manager. Income from those sources
will not be considered as game receipts. Sites may charge up to $5.00 for parking. The OHSAA Football Administrator must approve higher parking charges.

Probably charging $5 to park since there’s no cut from ticket sales now.

How do first round hosts cover the cost of having a game? Is there an allowance from OHSAA?

Every school should charge 5 bucks to park. Good money for the athletic department

Golly, I'm really surprised that someone has not gotten on here and said what a good deal they got by only having to pay 3 dollars at the Jackson playoff game.

It pays to have connections. No parking fee (front row) or ticket fee for me last week down there but they got my money back at the concession stand. Veal not bad and a few hot chocolates 8-)
