I got curious about Cobresal, so I looked them up here. They play in a 20,000 seat stadium, which is strange, because the town they play in (El Salvador, in the Atacama desert) only has 7,000 people. Green Bay and Saskatchewan have nothing on these guys.

Indeed, it is. This stadium was built in 1980 by the Chilean state copper company Codelco; then in 1985 the stadium was expanded to 20,000 because Cobresal qualified for the Copa Libertadores 1986 (this is the minimum capacity required for Stadiums in this tournament). The stadium is located in the town of El Salvador, a mining camp built by Codelco in the Atacama Desert. Currently has about 5,000 inhabitants.


Aerial view of El Salvador and the Estadio El Cobre, home of Cobresal, in the Atacama Desert, Chile.

Because the stadium capacity quadruples the population of the village of El Salvador is popularly known as "the world's largest stadium "

Impressive considering neither of those schools is anywhere near Dallas. That's a sellout for Toyota Stadium, yes?

North Dakota State fans bought 15,000 of those tickets. They have better fan following than many FBS schools. It also helps that they've been so dominant(4th straight national championship). Their fan support is a big reason why North Dakota State has hosted an ESPN College GameDay in each of the last two seasons.

Given that the 6 Nations is starting tonight, it's maybe a good time to reflect on this season's rugby union attendances. Here are all the TOP 14 attendances so far:

On the vertical colums you have each club in alphabetical order and their attendance each matchday.

They didn't calculate the averages per club so here they are, rounded down (in the same order):

Bayonne: 13543

Bordeaux: 21354

Brive: 11498

Castres: 8503

Clermont: 16921

Grenoble: 13846

Part one

NCAA FBS football attendance for 2014. Attendance was down overall by 4%

NCAA FBS attendance drops by 4%

Quote:
Football Bowl Subdivision crowds for home games averaged 43,483 fans per game, down 4 percent from 2013 and the lowest since 42,631 in 2000, according to a CBSSports.com analysis of NCAA attendance data. This marked the sixth straight season crowds were below 46,000 since they peaked at 46,456 in 2008.
However..

Quote:
The good news: 72 percent of the top 25 attendance leaders experienced increases or remained the same (all of the top 25 were from Power Five conferences or Notre Dame). The bad news: Only 48 percent of the remaining Power Five schools maintained or increased their crowd average, and many schools in smaller conferences continued to decline.

Ohio State, which averaged 106,296 fans, ended Michigan's 16-year run atop the attendance leaders. Michigan dropped to third at 104,909 behind No. 2 Texas A&M (105,123).

The biggest increases among Power Five schools: Texas A&M (21 percent), Maryland (14 percent), LSU (11 percent), Mississippi State (10 percent), Rutgers (9 percent), Florida State (9 percent) and UCLA (nine percent). Texas A&M, LSU and Mississippi State expanded their stadiums this season. Maryland and Rutgers were new Big Ten members.
and more not so good news..

Quote:
The biggest decreases in the Power Five: Purdue (28 percent), Pittsburgh (17 percent), Virginia (15 percent), Kansas (10 percent), Arizona State (9 percent) and Oklahoma State (8 percent).

It's to be expected. For now there's the novelty for several schools as the latest realignments kick in, but in time that will wear off and we'll be back to the norm: The upper caste of programs will prosper and draw and the rest will settle in knowing the system is quite rigged. Sure, there will be a few anomalies now and again but it's tougher and tougher to break into the top tier without some undue major investment.

-6%

Thankfully, people who were responsible for this mess are all gone, from athletic director to head coach. Now that we got Harbaugh, Michigan will be back on top next year.

CBS sports lists the overall average for FBS as 42,631, but that includes neutral site games and is weighted by the number of home games are played, meaning it's boosted by the fact larger programs usually host more home games. If you did a straight average of the average attendance for home games played the figure is 42,256. Not much difference but still interesting.

Here's how that breaks down per conference.

Conf._Avg.___Median
SEC__78,704__83,608
B1G__66,311__59,072
BXII__58,006__53,734
PAC__52,705__49,286
ACC__49,748__50,519

So basically half of the PAC, BXII and ACC have averages under the 51,000-ish mark, illustrating that the difference makers in those averages lie at the extremes. The BXII has no real drags (only KU below 44k) at the bottom versus the ACC with 6 and PAC at 3 all below that mark. The PAC also has no giants, with only UCLA surpassing the 76k mark.

Interesting to compare the B1G and SEC, as well, this way. B1G having a significantly lower median than average indicates the comparably lagging appeal of the bottom half of the conference. (Shocker, I know)

Later I'll have to examine the relationships between attendance figures and avg. # of home games.

Good job popeye!

So 43 (NCAA) + 32 (NFL) = 75 football teams in the US averaging more than 50,000/game.
