Football: Friday night notes

By Jonathan Okanes
Friday, September 16th, 2011 at 9:15 pm in Football, upcoming game.

***UPDATED (Thanks, David)***

 

Here is Presbyterian’s weekly game notes.

The Bears had their usual Friday walk-through this evening at AT&T Park. According to latest figures, only 32,500 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s game.

The football game is actually the nightcap of a double header. At 1 p.m., Cal’s men’s water polo alumni will take on members of the Olympic Club in McCovey Cove. It’s an exhibition game and free to the public. Now that is unique.

As usual, I’ll be blogging from AT&T Park tomorrow and you can follow me on Twitter (@OkanesonCal).

    32,500???? That’s putrid! They had far more season tickets than that at Memorial, no?

  • calgrizzlybear

    whats the max seating at AT&T 40 -46k?

  • SDBear

    ATO made it almost impossible for season ticket holders to continue to sit together. It was a mess, THAT is why more tix were not sold.

    sometimes being an invalid is tougher than other times. This would have been a great day to get my kid to AT&T. Water polo in McCovey Cove? How cool is that?!?!

    BEAT PRESBY TO A PULP! SEND A MESSAGE TO THE HUSKIES, THE QUACKS & THE University of Suspended Cheaters (USC) NEXT WEEK AND BEYOND THAT WE ARE IN THIS DIVISION TO WIN THE NORTH AND THE PAC 12 CHAMPIONSHIP! GO BEARS!

    I believe 42K is the max. And who cares who really wants to buy a ticket for a game that’s over by the 2nd qtr and 3rd and 4th stringers playing the 2nd half. Only in the SEC do those morons do that. Go Bears!

    Kyle raises an interesting point. In today’s down economy, people are choosing their discretionary spending carefully, and perhaps the Cal marketing people might have given some consideration to lowering prices to attract more of a crowd to a game in which the visiting team will likely have a very small number of fans. I hope the AD did not do a serious miscalculation as to the impact that a lot of CMS season ticket holders opting out of AT&T would have on overall ticket sales and the revenue picture generally.
