That figure includes all season ticket holders and a lot didn't show on such a awful night it looked about 4000 to me never seen the Kop so empty.

The plus side of poor results is less queues to get in and less to get out sad smiley

ahh, so it's season tickets + plus tickets sold, and cash on gate if anybody still does that.
Not bums on seats

It has to be bums on seats. Otherwise how do they account for long distance season ticket holders whose tickets are valid for 75% of games. I would be accounted as 0.75 of a supporter per game - I dont see 5026.75 as the attendance for Tuesday night but 5026.

Health & safety rules as well.

I'm pretty sure it's bums on seats for us, not sales.
I say that because I recall a game last season where they announced ticket sales in the run-up to the game like they usually do (which does include ST holders), but the actual attendance came in afterwards as lower than the ticket sales figure they'd previously announced.

The Tottenham game last season is case in point. A sell out and yet only 12000 of those who had tickets went through the turnstiles.

I know some prem sides announce tickets sold. Old Trafford and the Emirates do.
Season ticket holders are tied into some cup games so they buy the ticket but don't go. 1000s in some cases

So why do they always include ALL season tickets in the pre sales numbers( that includes long distance season ticket holders) but don't in the official attendance the figure on Tuesday night included all season tickets if they went or not and a lot stayed away on Tuesday for obvious reasons. Also don't know what Health and Safety has to do with it but i have been going to PP for a very long time and i have a good idea of crowd sizes and i repeat the crowd on Tuesday was nothing like 5026.

Hi - Lads - I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the official capacity is of prenton park. I know in all the official club records it says 16,400 but when we played Tottenham hotspur last year it was classed as a sell out and the crowd was 12000 and when we played Manchester united again it was classed as a sell out but the crowd was only 13700.

It's irritating checking the paper next day to find the attendance with no joy. Every other match has the figures, why not us?

as of the Spurs game we had 15,573 seats in the stadium.
I think this has now been further reduced due to the TV gantry in the JK stand.
I'm sure it's currently 14,800

It doesn’t act as 0.75 and it is included.

It permits me to attend 17 out of 23 games, so its actually 0.73913043

I did not see 5026.73913043 given in the attendance figure for Tuesday nights game.

In reality I did not attend (watched on ifollow) so as I didnt click the turnstile my attendance was not registered.
This means the attendance registered is bums on seats.

You didn’t see that figure you’ve said because that isn’t what the official attendance was.

Ring the ticket office and find out for yourself.
