Watching MOTD and the empty seats at West Ham and Arsenal look terrible

Rather sell out every week at 52k than have a load of spaces around the ground
And then there is the atmosphere it will generate if it is full. The longer this thread goes the more I think they are right .

Simple economics here people. Make the stadium big enough to increase capacity substantially. 13 000 extra people is 33% increase already. If you keep people wanting to get in, you can raise the price of a ticket. Supply and demand in full force.

Now letís do the math. Say a ticket costs £40 currently. 39000 people in Goodison thatís ticket revenue of £1.56M.

To fill a 55 000 stadium consistently they likely wonít be able to raise ticket prices much. And thus ticket revenue at £40 per seat would be £2.2M per match.

If they made a stadium at 50000 seats and could charge £5 per seat more than current as they demand will be greater and seat availaibilty more limited they will increase match day ticket revenue to £2.25M per game.

With 52000 seats that match day revenue is 2.35M. So getting that sweet number that allows increase demand to outweigh the  increased supply means increased revenue at much lower capital outlay.
Main driver in all this is actually executive boxes. GP is desperately short of these. Increasing this number will increase match day revenue much more than just looking at seat numbers. They can now add enough boxes to meet demand (and some). Regular seats are a relatively minor matter income-wise.

Not a fan of the armchair maths.

There are so many factors we are not privy to and have no idea of that anything we come up with would be basic in the extreme and no real indicator of what will happen.

I think we can fairly safely say that it should increase revenue - but beyond that, we really have no idea of figures or even percentages. It's far more complex than people on here seem to think.

Not a dig at you @Confucius

(or rather - not a dig at JUST you ;)  hehe!)

I'm only here for the cladding/Bramley Moore Dock updates

So will the footprint allow for a 52k and the additional 10k would simply be bolted in the top of a stand?

Probs makes sense considering the limited space to build on.

in 2008, Keith Harris was given the job of finding a new buyer for Newcastle United after Mike Ashley decided he wanted to sell

someone once described him - our Deputy Chairman - as someone who "couldn't sell a boat to a drowning man"

Don't forget 20% of a ticket price is VAT -  :eh:
