Here is the full NCAA report. Unfortunately right now the FCS "Team by Team" section is still listing 2016 figures.

Good to see that they are recovering from those dark days of drawing 2,000 to the Bowl on a perfectly nice afternoon.

More than half the season's total attendance at the "Bowl" comes from the Harvard-Yale game when its in New Haven, as it was in 2017.

At least Yale can use its own stadium to accommodate The Game. Harvard needs to use other's facilities.

"At least Yale can use its own stadium to accommodate The Game" he says.... well that is unless they need to use the restroom ... then Yale can't really "accommodate" them, can it, Eli?

The NCAA finally fixed the report to get the FCS Team by Team Section right. Here are the Ivy rankings:


Games. Total. Avg.

1) Yale. 5. 94,699. 18,940
2). Harvard. 5. 52,055. 10,411
3). Princeton. 5. 36,831. 7,366
4). Cornell. 5. 33,967. 6,793
5). Columbia. 5. 33,362. 6,672
6). Dartmouth. 5. 27,559. 5,512
7). Penn. 5. 26,374. 5,275
8). Brown. 4. 11,997. 2,999

The Brown average does night include the game at Fenway as the NCAA considers that neutral. That doesn't bode well for Harvard's attendance figures next year.

Yale's average attendance ranked more than 25 FBS programs and just short of UConn's average of 20,335.

Collectively, we need to find a way to increase attendance and interest.
Some of these figures are dangerously close to high school attendance levels (and less in many states).

It is all about marketing. I go back to minor league baseball teams that use hokey promotions, giveaways and other marketing gimmicks to fill their stadiums and they do. Playing a well known FBS team would sure help, but absent that, we’ll have to promote the old fashioned way...through community organizations. League leadership needs to see that.

Bottom line is there seems to be no driving desire among the athletics departments, alumni or school administrators to generate excitement in the student body or local communities.

If we cannot do that, then football becomes an irrelevant happening, which perpetuates further irreversible program challenges. Those of us on this board represent a decent % of the attendance at some schools, especially when added to player parents and family. Unfortunately we are not getting any younger and will show diminished interest in attending games at some point. The younger community population (families with younger children) need to grow up watching our teams and the students that attend school at our institutions, in order to save the League from disappearing from the public radar.

Must be too much time on hands this winter.

Statistics are wonderful.

Move The Game to Cambridge--- Deduct 45,000 (less than Yale's fake news announced number )

Add 30,000 in Cambridge.

Yale 4 49,699 12,425
Harvard 6 82,055 13,675.

Yawn.
