Just want to ask those that have the numbers, Jim  ;)

We only have 2 more games that are "pay dates" ... and figure the UF games are about $500K.

Now I would assume that nobody wants to have us as their OOC "easy" schedule anymore, so this discussion may be mute, but:

How much money do we "gross" with a home game with 40K fans ?

I think financially, it is better for us to have home & away games with the "middle of the pack" teams than playing against a big team on the road for a 1 game deal. Just curious so I have my "guns loaded" for this discussion.

ET - I don't really have the numbers... but you can do some simple assumptions...

With 30,000 paid tickets and 10,000 students... and an average of $27 per ticket you get $810,000 gross.

For Elon the announced attendance as around 33,000 and there were some 8,600 students ... that's around 24,000 paid tickets... for a gross tickets sales of around $650,000... if USF paid Elon $300,000 and rented RayJay for $120,000 then USF's "profit" was around $230,000 for that game.

The numbers are REALLY crude and probably missing something... but it can give you a ball park figure...

Does USF get any concessions revenue, or is that all daddy Glazer?

IF USF fans pay more than $2 million in parking and concessions, then USF gets the amount over $2M.  It's never happened.  That's an average of $30 per person at 65,000 fans.

The Bucs get the first $2 M in parking and concessions for every non-Bucs event at the stadium.

4 beers per fan should do it. :)
