Quakes attendance numbers have been highly questionable for the last decade or so, but this year, under new ownership, they should become less so.
I interviewed new Quakes president Brent Miles this week (for a story to come out likely next week) and he indicated that they are going to be accurate about attendance, even if it means the Quakes don’t win the league attendance title for the first time. They will stick to the formula of tickets sold+comp tickets redeemed=attendance.
My feeling: attendance will go down, but if you go to the games, it probably won’t seem like there are any fewer fans there than in previous years. At least the figures will be accurate.
