At the rate we're going we should be averaging close to a sellout in the new arena.

I see quite a bit of negativity about the seating capacity of the new arena from people on social media and I just don't get it. Having a smaller, more intimate arena is going to be great for this program and we will still have the option of using the Vines Center. It seems like such a no brainier to go this route to me and people are still upset about it. I'd rather have an arena for of 4,000 passionate fans than 8,000 in the Vines with half of them acting like they don't even want to be there.Consider the source.

Duke could of course get way more 4500 or whatever it is cameron holds.Cameron Indoor Stadium has a capacity of 9,314. For comparison, Vines Center is basically the same size with a basketball capacity of 9,457.
Personally i dont think the 4k is off much but its obvious thats the number they came up with that will sell out all but the christmas break non d1 types. As long as were winning of course.

We had 6,000 in attendance tonight, which means we would have TURNED AWAY 2,000 fans in the new Liberty Arena.I suspect overflow seating in the Vines will be provided for games next year when they expect it would be utilized. Do NOT expect any games to be moved there in the foreseeable future, regardless of demand.

Anyone who is dismayed by turning people away are still in the mindset that tickets should be give away. Which increases the perception that LU isn’t a “real” school. I mean you get what you pay for, right?Cider Jim wrote: ↑January 18th, 2020, 10:58 pm Will we have overflow seating in the Vines Center next year?

I'm a bit disappointed at how much outraged there seems to be at the idea of "turning away" people to games, but I'm not surprised. It's something that hasn't happened at Liberty for at least 30 years, so it's going to take some getting used to. The places that have this "problem" have some of the best home game environments in the NCAA and with it some of the best home records.
