Hi Pete.I am becoming a bit bemused by our reported attendances at games. Yesterday the attendance was given as 6,541, with 365 Cobblers. I assume that the visiting fans are included in the total and are not additional.
Now, the last media team news on the available spaces yesterday quoted 80 in the Oprtimising IT stand, 50, specifially in Block K, of the Nevada stand and 450 on the big bank. The 'available' spaces, when added to the quoted attendance figure, comes to 7,121.
In April 2022, the club website stated categorically that the maximum capacity of SJP is 8,720. Now, I believe that this has since been reduced further as a result of ground safety guidance. I am not sure of the new figure, but surely not just over 7,000?
The attendance at the match on Tuesday v Luton was given as 7360 with 708 Luton, yet that match was oft quoted as 'sold out'.
What am I missing, or not understanding??
