Your logic doesn't work, how are they not overselling when claiming attendance of 20-21k in an 18.5k seat stadium?

Great list, but there's one small mistake, it is spelled Utrecht, not Utretch

I was reacting to your particular terminology wherein I suspect there's confusion about the term General Admission.

If they're overselling then it's by adding Standing Room Only (SRO) tickets allowing access to public spaces but not seating areas. GA seating, on the other hand, means you sell the same number of seats as exists in the venue but people can sit wherever. Usually those are done on a section by section basis. In the case of Atlanta United while at Bobby Dodd stadium than means the folks in those sections have stubs reading GA117 or GA116. (As someone with an assigned front row seat one section over we've had to habitually tell folks our section isn't GA.) So someone like SKC might be overselling but that would be via SRO tickets whereby patrons have to linger in breezeways, access ramps, etc. Or like the Dallas Cowboys where you can enter the venue and visit special lounges but may never actually see the field and certainly don't get a spot in the stands.
