If you think this blog (and its readers) don’t make an impact, think again.
Here’s some new ticket information announced by USC athletic director Mike Bohn: “We’ve sold 4,177 new season tickets for 2021. Of those sales, 2,527 were purchased by former season ticket holders who dropped their tickets and decided to return this season, while 1,650 reflect first-time season ticket sales.”
Now all ticket numbers are unverified because we have to take USC’s word for it. But at least they have announced some figures.
So let’s say we believe the above statement: It still shows the paltry interest in USC football.
The marquee program west of the Mississippi River coming off a Pac-12 South title with a Heisman Trophy candidate at QB barely sold 4,000 new tickets?
Also, does the 2,527 who dropped their tickets include people who asked for refunds last season and merely renewed as expected this season?
The fact is there are a lot of people who simply dropped and did not renew the past 2 seasons. That’s the biggest number.
- Meanwhile, some media are mocking that USC is giving the basketball team rings for making the Elite Eight.
I’m old enough to remember USC gave rings to its 2001 team for making the Elite Eight.https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
