Revenue

Well based on that texas has the most revenue potential in basketball revenue and they zero nattys in bball.

I bet they don’t fill it all the time. Also if they wanted to get more revenue they just increase price. Like it was stated before Duke does pretty well.

UT new arena is downsizing to around 11k I think.

Edit: It will hold 10k for Basketball. Schd to open 2022 Season

Can our arena expand? Going to 10k would be fine. Zero reason to do anything more than that.

Cameron Indoor doesn’t even hold 10k.

I think another 1500 or so would be ideal. Put it around 8600. It’s ok if size is little smaller footprint than most. It’s a great venue.

Just hike the price. Quality over quantity.

That’s where I would ultimately land. 10k would be the absolute max.

We aren’t expanding. We didn’t build it to do so.

whats the F-Center cap? close to 8,500? I think thats plenty.

we need a few seasons of actual sellout games before we start talking expansion. I mean actual butts in seats sellouts, not just tickets sold. even then, we can cram 9,000 in there standing room only and it will be ROWDY!

Right now?

Fyi… FC holds 7,100 at capacity. That’s the only downside. Had to give up seats w the whole raise the ceiling etc. I’m not an Engineer, I just know that came into play n reduced cap of arena. Have t9 do for now.

right now, what?

sneaky edit…

yes my google foo wasnt that good, looks like it was the hoff that held 8,500.

Seating capacity

Correct. Lot of people get fooled w that. I love #s so the capacity sticks w me. The Hoff was originally little over 10k when built, then last of few redo’s it went down to around 8500.

UT never opens the upper deck unless they are playing Kansas.

That seems correct to me. The Fertitta Center will not be expanded. Sitting up in Indiana’s old fieldhouse during this year’s NCAA tournament, the view was TERRIBLE. Bigger is NOT better.
