Based off the numbers, there was no significant difference in the average number of attendance for 2011 and 2012. There were more in numbers in 2012 because of 5 home games being played.

The games at Hale Stadium did provide for a better game atmosphere for TSU supporters. The OVC home games still had similar attendance for both seasons.

Further information will be obtained once the revenue figures are presented for the 2012 season. We know when we use LP Field, that their is a fee of 130K for use of the stadium and also a 30K cleaning fee for each game. When we use LP field, we do get the revenues from the gate, concessions, and parking.

Those revenue options are unfortunately limited at Hale Stadium. We did receive revenue from ticket sales. There was a limited area for charge parking spaces, and Aramark sold the food for concessions.
