I've pinched John's useful post above from another thread as it probably warrants its own space.St James Park Capacity - News - Exeter City FC
"This reduces our capacity to 8219 before segregation and any unused away capacity"
The realistic maximum is therefore 1,300 away (350 + 950) and 6,800 or so home, say just over 8,000 in total. The unused away capacity is not generally available for home fans for logistical reasons.
It was 7,816 for the Bristol Rovers game (where they also sold all their allocation and after over 60 no-shows, 1,232 away) and 6,514 home.
If we sell out the home seats and all but 600 on the BB and Posh only bring 400 that indicates a realistic attendance of around 6,500, less any no-shows where we get the money anyway (ST holders are counted whether they attend or not).
If we are regularly attracting 6k home fans to SJP and the limit is 6.8k, do we really need to start considering realistic options of increasing the capacity at SJP? We are riding a wave in terms of home attendances so we need to consolidate and push further. If we want to continue to progress and and increase income then this seems like the next logical step.
What options do we have?
