There's absolutely no way that Falkirk crowds are remotely close to what they're announced as.  Saturday might have been a lot closer with it being the first game, but 9/10 the crowd is some wild number which everyone can see is absolute nonsense.  Probably inclusive of every season ticket sold, despite not every season ticket holder being in attendance. 

 

It's a simple observation. No need to take the huff. 

Virtually every club in the country includes all season ticket holders in attendance figures.

Just because we have a support triple the size of yours doesn't mean you have to be jealous.

Do they?

 

Why would you do that. That in itself defeats the purpose of announcing, erm, the match attendance. ..

Queens don’t probably cause we haven’t got that many season ticket holders. The club never says how many anyway.

My understanding is that some clubs do that, but most clubs don't.  I'm pretty sure Killie's attendance figures are based on the number of people who attended.

Not necessarily because you don't have that many season ticket holders, but because it's absolutely not the done thing. 

Unless ofc, you're either of Falkirk, Dunfermline or the Highland clubs. 

 

A perfect example here - crowd announced as a 4816 :lol::lol::lol:

This thread is pretty much irrelevant. Who gives a flying f**k how teams count attendance? Why do Morton fans care how Queens fans count attendance? Why does it matter to Partick fans how Falkirk fans count attendances? 

 

I know the gap between games drags a bit, but Jesus.. 

 

Just wee teams jumping up and down trying to get noticed.

Eh, your fans have also been banging on that the league Cup was meaningless and you couldn't look to deaply into it, make up yer minds min. 

 

 

Also Dunfermline, Falkirk and the Highland sides announce how many tickets have been sold for the game, it doesn't bother me much tbh. 

It was meaningless but we were still poor and then poor again on Saturday. The pre season enthusiasm has disappeared like snow aff a dyke.

Not at all.

In the top flight last season, I’m relatively confident it was a 50/50 split between “tickets sold” and actual attendance. Celtic, Aberdeen, Rangers, Hibs, Hearts and County are the ones it look like gave tickets sold, while the other 6 reported who was actually in attendance. I’ll admit I could be wrong about a couple of these, but just from the simple eye test when you’re at the game it’s usually easy enough to work it out.

Cant speak for last year’s Championship, but I know Dunfermline admitted they do it, and it seems like you’re acknowledging that Falkirk do as well.

Crowdwank is a bit over the top, but it should be celebrated that this league has supporters that prefer to support their hometown club than support one of the two  arsecheeks.

Always remember there is a bigger percentage of supporters of clubs that don't support Celtic or Rangers that go to watch and support their team.

Always remember there are thousands of supporters of Celtic or Rangers that only go to the big games or have never been to watch the club they allegedly support.

Many places in Scotland the home club is only the third most supported club in the town/city, so a very good crowd at a match in this league should be applauded.

If you want to know how many Thistle fans are ready for the #NextBigMoment just read/count the posts from the last two months of nothingness on the Club Twitter feed and round down to exclude mentions of the “quality” new signings we have.

I prefer the actual attendance figure being stated. It's not a number pulled out of the air though. We have actually got that many fans either in the ground or own a Pars season ticket.

Morton could start announcing crowds of 2000 if they added their ST holders. Come join us.

You can also add Dundee to that list above. I know for a fact they add season ticket sales to attendances.

Weren't there allegations it used to be the other way round in the past? Something to do with tax?

I'm sure Celtic used to deliberately understate the attendance for some dubious reasons in the 80s *

It didn't look like it when I was at Dens twice last season. But as I said it's more of an educated guess, so you could well be right.

I know for a fact that Thistle count actual attendance, and am almost certain that Kilmarnock, Motherwell and St Johnstone do as well.

The exception to it all is Ross County, who for as long as I can remember seem to genuinely have been pulling figures straight out of the air, though.

 

At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter. Attendances are pretty much only used for bragging between fans, or by the media to either slate a wee club or champion a bigger one who are shite. It's just a bit daft that there's no set criteria for measuring it.

If there is any comparisons it should be the same club from year to year average attendance.

If the first Dunfermline v Falkirk match of the season gets a couple hundred more on the gate than last season then well done to both sets of supporters. It has nothing to do with any other club.

I would like to see attendances on the up at every club so we can show the fucktards that knock Scottish football at every opportunity that we are behind our clubs and that there is more to Scottish football than what the popular media portrays.
