25th in the league in total attendence (http://espn.go.com/nfl/attendance/_/year/2009). Cincy had better home attendence...

This is disappointing..

why do some holier than thou people make it a constant point to repetitively call out all other steelerfans?

the stadium isnt the largest. but on the flipside, the steelers dont constantly jack up the prices on their fans either.

i see cleveland is 15th. has anyone ever seen a pgh stadium half empty like in cleveland the night they finally won their second game of the season vs the steelers?

*flush*

Bahahaha, that is the most worthless pile of crap numbers I have ever seen:
Seating capacity for Heinz Field = 65,050; Avg Attendance = 63,485; Equals 98% filled every game.
Paul Brown Stadium (Bungles Home) Capacity = 65,515; Avg Attendance = 64,004; Equals 98% filled every game (although we know during Steelers games there was probably an equal number of each teams fans which never happens in the Burgh)
Cleveland capacity = 73200; 68888 Avg Attendance = 94% attendance . . .Hmmm, they are above the Steelers though at #15, oh yeah, they ahve more seating available!
Now the kicker:
Dallas' new megadome capacity = 80,000; Avg Attendance = 89,756?? So they seat almost 10k more people than there are seats? Hmmm, number don't seem to add up there . . .

Even if they were 100% capacity (which is pretty impossible) they would still be top of the chart just due to the fact they can seat 20k more people per game. Those numbers are screwy without the fact that they obviously bias larger stadiums. Should be a percentage attended instead of total seating capacity.

Exactly. These attendance rankings are pretty much BS because they don't take into account the fact that some stadiums seat more than others. You have to look at the percentages.

For example...the Steelers have a higher attendance percentage than the #2 Redskins.

you can't go by those bs numbers like stated above you have to go by percentages.

When was the last time a player or local business had to buy up tickets (and then give them away) in order to sell out a Steelers game? Every week, Krogers or other local business bailed out the Bengals.


The locals here in Cinci and northern Ky. have no probelm with buying tickets or season tickets to UC, UK, Xavier or Ohio State games.

Guys, if you click on the % header, the list will be sorted differently, but we're still #17 in terms of % of attendance vs. capacity.

Dallas Stadium has over 100,000 seats to 64,450 for the Steelers, so how could they have possibly had a better ranking? Stupid number.

Looks like Heinz Field was filled at 97% for our 8 home games compared to >100% for Dallas, Indy and a few others;.
I don't understand how there could be more spectators than seats in any stadium though.
Anyway, Heinz Field wasn't full when the Packers visited us and there was much more than 3% empty seats, even taking into account the people standing in the rotundas.

Most watched Super Bowl ever. Take over every stadium we play in. Have to stop our fans from buying tickets to games.

Yeah, I'll take those stats.

Bullshit numbers. Its all about capacity not number of total showed up. Funny story but dont the Steelers have a long number of game sellouts and have never been blacked out in their own market?

They take into account standing-room only tickets - that's how you can have more people in the building than seating capacity.

And it is pretty well-known that even though the Steelers sell out every game, there are numerous no-shows at almost every game. There were a lot of empty seats when I went to the Cleveland game back in October.

The fans should have been fired along with Arians, right? :chuckle:

As far as the Dallas stadium goes...it may have like 80,000 seats...but they have a ton of standing room only that they sell tickets too. So they can easily have 100,000 people like they did earlier this year.

Most of the no-shows are probably old-time yinzers who b*tch about traffic, parking, and how sh*tty the team is now compared to the '70s teams. If they don't want to be there, then they can either relinquish their season tickets, or sell them to people who do want to be there (and there's plenty of them).

You do realize that % is also inaccurate in that list, right? There are 6 teams with over 100% attendance, so they either let in a lot of counterfeit ticket holders or the capacity those stadiums list don't include a lot of people like 25,000 standing room in Dallas.

Check the previous answers on the subject.
Bottom line is there are more people than seats showing up in these stadiums, which is not the case for Heinz Field.

Huh? This is all garbage right out of the shoot. The Browns have 94% attendance? No. Way. The Steelers game in December was at LEAST 15,000 shy of full, and they failed to sell out 2 more of their home games.
