Some schools list attendance by tickets sold, others by turnstile count of actual bodies in the house.

Looking at Denver's listed attendance for the two exhibition games this last weekend was 5K and 4K, but the actual number of fans who showed ip appeared to be about 1/2 of what was reported, meaning a lot of sold tickets went unused.

How many people actually showed up for your team's exhibition game (s)?

Gopher AD has always listed tickets sold. The tickets are scanned so they know how many showed up, but they ain't telling. ;)

Over 8K listed for last night, I'd guess no more than 6K there.

WMU counts tickets sold for attendance and our exhibition game was free. So official attendance was 0, but reality was about 1,200.

I didn't really try to count but Lowell probably had maybe 500 fans yesterday. It was free admission and it was against the St. Francis Xavier thugs.

Reported as 1,800, which seems about right. 3 o'clock on a Sunday during the Browns Bengals game did wonders for student attendance.

According to the box score, it was 980.

Its hard to judge (most of the attendance was behind me and not across the ice) but there were not many less than 1,500. It was down right quite at times.

BU announced 4400 vs Toronto Saturday night. I am guessing that was paid and not actual body count.. Strong student sections. The rest weak. Guessing 3000 actual.

OSU: 47
(but we played [with] ourselves, which is never good to do in front of a lot of people...) :D

National Hockey Center seemed about half full and the student section was loud and definitely into the game.

Cripes! I should have gone North for the game. I could have had a good chance at a third Game Worn raffle jersey. :D

Notre Dame vs. U of Guelph was listed at about 2100. Regular admission was about 2/3 full and the student section was maybe 1/4 full.
