Mind you, the 57% of stadium capacity wasn’t achieved until the afternoon
According to The Nation News, 15,511 people attended Kensington Oval for Ireland and Bangladesh, of which 5,844 were “free admissions” after the first 90 minutes of play. (Two Nation News stories – here and here)
15,511 people out of a stadium capacity of 27,000 equals 57%
Another Way Of Looking At The Attendance Stats
Without opening the gates for free admissions after 90 minutes of play, only 9,667 ticket holders would have attended for a capacity of 36% of Kensington Oval.
Now The Big Question…
Of the 9,667 ticket holders who were not “free admissions after the first 90 minutes of play” – how many thousands had received their tickets for free at their workplace or school earlier in the week?
Somebody knows the answer, but we’ll never hear officially. As a guess, let’s say 2,000 of the 9,667 ticket holders on Sunday received their tickets for free at their workplace.
What do you think folks? Are we guessing too high or too low?
