This was a fun thread a couple years ago, but of course last year with the COVID restrictions there was really no point.

Now that we're somewhat back to normal, thought it'd be fun to compare the UIL State Championship attendance vs the NCAA Bowl Game attendance.

I love these small school games where the game attendance is higher than the combined total of the two towns playing.  :rofl:

What’s the split for schools, UIL and Jerry?

Don’t quote me on this…….

But it seems like I recall reading that tickets are split between the UIL and the schools.   No cut for Jerry in tickets. 

But Jerry gets 100% of parking and concessions. 

But Im not 100% on that.

I believe that is correct.

 

The main thing Jerry gets out of it is PR. How many of these kids and family want to go attend a game or event at the place they played a championship game?  Answer,,,,, most of them!

I know the gate receipts always go to the UIL and the participating schools get a per cent of that gate. I'm sure the UIL has to pay the Cowboys a flat rate for the use of AT&T for 4 days but I have no idea how much. Yes, Jerry and the "Boys get 100% of all concessions and parking.

So the 4A D2 game drew almost double what the 5A D1 game did? That’s interesting. 

Gilmer/China Springs both closer than College Station/Katy Paetow was. Not to mention, both CS and KP are pretty new schools (Paetow literally like 4 years old).

I wonder if Highland Park has ever had to pay when the have made it to the SC game?
