Yep, the visitor side is small because over the years they weren't seeing more than 200 people show up. Therefore when the stadium was upgraded, money was spent on smaller stands.Thanks for the history lesson. Centerville's soccer only stadium is awesome! I love that no track surrounds the field which is very rare in high school.
The issue last night is Seton was the visiting team and brought 1000+ people. The visitors section has seating for maybe 500? Thus the entire student body (7 busloads) was forced to stand along the fence to watch the game. It made for a great atmosphere but you charge each girl $8+ per ticket but don't provide them a seat?
Not sure what the answer is other than recognizing the pre-sale tickets sold and allowing seats for each person. If a specific venue has a drastic difference between home and away, the team bringing all the fans should be on the larger side.
Either way, what a remarkable run Seton has been on pulling upsets over Milford and MND and then beating a VERY skilled Olentangy team in double overtime!
Even during the end of season rivalry between the boys Centerville vs Alter match, hardly any visitors showed up which is a far cry from when I was in school.
Agree, perhaps Home/Visitor seating should be based on ticket sales. Perhaps a few people should write the OHSAA and make them aware. Otherwise, good luck at the State Finals; hope your team wins it all!
