DU students show lack of support at athletic events.

  1. 1. •  The    Magness  Arena,  located  within  the  Ritchie  Center  holds  7,200  people;  however,  there  are  only  150  seats  in  the  basketball  student  secBon.  The  student  secBon  accounts  for  2%  of  the  total  occupancy  of  the  Ritchie  Center.  
  2. 2. The  designated  seaBng  area  for  students  is  insignificant,  in  comparison,  to  the  total  the  occupancy  of  the  arena.  
  3. 3. “I  think  a  lot  of  people  don’t     want  to  go  the  games  because   there  really  isn’t  anywhere  to                                               cheer,”-­‐  Freshman  basketball     fan  Chris  Gang.  
  4. 4. •  The  total  aOendance   at  this  home   basketball  game  vs.   Middle  Tennessee   State  University  on   Feb.  4  was  181.    
  5. 5. This  enBre  porBon  of  the  student  secBon  remained  empty  for  the  Women’s  Basketball  game  vs.  Middle  Tennessee  State  on  Feb.  4.    
  6. 6. “Hopefully,  our  move  to  the  more  presBgious  (Western  AthleBc  Conference)  will  inspire  more  students  to  come  to  games  next  year.  It’s  sad  to  see  such  small  crowds,  especially  at  a  school  with  a  thriving  athleBc  program,”  -­‐Cindi  Nagai,  Director  of  Student  Athlete  Support  Services.    
  7. 7. Many  of  the  sporBng  events  in  Magness  Arena  draw  the  support  of  a  few  hundred  students,  opposed  to  thousands  of  outside  fans.  Friends  and  family  occupy  the  remaining  seats.    
  8. 8. Even  with  the  support  of  friends  and  family,  many  seats  remain  vacant  during  men’s  and  women’s  games.  
  9. 9. Parents  and  siblings  filled  the  seats  of  the  student  secBon  during  this  basketball  game  in  Magness  Arena.    
  10. 10. “When  I  was  younger,  my  dad  and  I  went  to  a  lot  of  basketball  games  at  DU.  Now  that  I  am  a  student  here,    I  rarely  aOend  games,”  –  Freshman  Sam  Garry.    
  11. 11. Special  occurrences,  such  as  naBonal  network  broadcasts  on  networks  such  as  ESPN,  seem  to  be  the  only  method  to  occasionally  spike  the  aOendance  rates  among  students.  
  12. 12. On  days  where  both  the  men  and  women  play,  however,  students  flood  to  the  aisles  to  leave  before  the  start  of  the  women’s  game.  
  13. 13. “UnBl  we  get  more  fans  to  come  and  actually  stay  for  games,  games  are  not  going  to  be  as  fun,”  –Freshman  Sam  Bibbey.
