Makes sense. Moreover, if we want to increase the capacity of the Park we needn't incur the cost of a new stand, we can just encourage our supporters to eat less! ;-)It's explained in the Club statement - to keep walkways free and so people feel less crushed. I think the Green Guide also recognised that people are on average bigger than they were a generation ago.
Less, as advance tickets are cheaper than PotD. Also you have to take off the VAT and its well less than £12 a head. Also you can charge more for seats. Less of an issue with all seated stadiums, so it hits ECFC harder than most, though lower numbers if it was all seated. I for one would not lose the BB for a few pennies in net revenue.That seems quite a lot of revenue to lose 396 on BB ,say at about
£14 a time 5.5k .
Tend to agree. You wouldn't say the capacity of a lift was 40 if accommodating that number of people meant they'd all likely suffocate. Surely, the capacity of something, especially a stadium, is the number of people who can be safely accommodated?!In that case I’d say the capacity isn’t 8,700 then.
