The first division target is probably the most difficult, but we could have a very competitive league this season and with play-offs most clubs should have an interest right up to the end.

    Shame the seats on the half-stand side in Dalymount can't be opened by Bohs or Dublin City Council, as it many years yet before the ground is developed.
    As said, Premier Division is pretty much there already. Would be surprised if the average in the Premier this season drops much below the 2,000 mark all the way through.

    First Division has a bit to go though. Meaning no disrespect, but the likes of UCD, Wexford, Cabinteely, Cobh and Athlone won't get crowds over 500 this year, at least not regularly.

    For the First Division to average out 1,000, you'd be relying on Drogheda, Harps, Galway, Longford and Shelbourne to all be getting near 2,000 crowds, which, let's face it, won't happen. Getting the FD average over 500 for a start would be a positive, and I don't even see that happening this season.


    Now, I know Harps, Drogheda and Galways attendances will drop and Waterfords may rise, but if you substitute Waterfords attendances and Galway/Harps/Drogheda from last season into each division they're in this season, the Premier average would sit at 2,099 and First 598. Replicating something like that this season would be positive for each division.

    Overall, getting the attendances closer to the half a million mark would be a more worthwhile objective.

    football is the same as any cash business I'd imagine seems like big crowds are often undereported in the league.

    Factor in free tickets handed out and sponsors tickets. They can sometimes account for a couple hundred in fairness, and they generally go unaccounted for. Waterford replied a tweet Friday after announcing the attendance and said that the announced attendance was only paying fans - https://twitter.com/waterfordfcie/st...15122319806465

    Limerick seem to have a sensible pricing structure:

    http://www.limerickfc.ie/club-shop/match-prices

    Matchday Prices will see games categorised into A and B.

    Category A (4):*Dundalk, Cork City, Shamrock Rovers, Waterford.

    Category B (5):*Derry City, Bohemians, Saint Patrick’s Athletic, Sligo Rovers, Bray Wanderers.
    A Championship: 4 years - 8 first teams - 0 financially ruined. First Division '14: 7 first teams.
    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    For home fans perhaps, but why should away fans be charged more because Limerick have deemed them category A or B?

    Equally, you could ask why should away fans pay less in some cases.

    Online advance purchase Adult Terrace tickets at €12 (Cat A) and €10 (Cat B) is among the lowest available in the Premier Division

    It's a fantastic offer and great scheme for Limerick supporters. Supporters have to pay the going rate.

    Rovers tweeted that figure too. I’ve seen pics of the stands in Tallaght tonight, looked a lot more full than that total.

    I always wonder is it a ticket scanning/counting issue.

    You're either delightfully innocent.

    Or an undercover police person!
