How do you fix the ULL attendance problem?
Last night the attendance was 14,200. That’s pitiful. A 9-2 team taking on their rival to end the season and this is how the Cajun fans come out to support?

ULL is averaging 18k for the season. It’s not just this week. That’s a far cry from earlier days in the decade, when the Cajuns led the league in attendance — averaged 29,171 in 2011.

Why do you think fans aren’t showing up? Tix are basically free and concessions are CHEAP. Does the success of big brother LSU down the road have something to do with it?

They’re to busy watching the LSU game pretending to hate us.

Attendance is probably down across the country with all the streaming services. Much worse for programs without established success. Add diminished tailgating scene from what I've heard and LSU's success and voila

It’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, most students are likely at home and other people out of town or have relatives in town. I would imagine attendance is down for games this weekend were down everywhere.

I was there last week. Similar empty stadium.

Allow fans to leave at half and go to the parking lot to "refuel" before coming back for the second half like we did circa 2008.

And a ton of students live in Lafayette so that doesn’t fly either.

I have no idea why they aren’t drawing better.

Head to head with LSU hurts but come on man

Yep. ULL is averaging 18k for the season. It’s not just this week.

re: How do you fix the ULL attendance problem?
Another year or two of this and attendance will be fine. It takes a lot longer to accumulate crowds than it does to lose them. Having gone to the midweek ULL game this year against App St, it was a fun experience. The parking was a breeze, concessions were cheap and tasty, beer was served, and the stadium atmosphere was fun despite not being near full. The only things I think they need to change:

1. They’ve got to do something about the concessions lines. The prices are awesome, and I want to buy more stuff, but the lines take almost an entire quarter of the game to get through. Shorter lines would have me buying 2 more rounds of drinks and snacks easily.
2. I wish there were fewer games conflicting with LSU home games. I wanted to go back to see more games, but there wasn’t another one that year that wasn’t during an LSU home game. I know they don’t have much control over that, but I’d love to hit up some ULL games more often when LSU is on bye or on the road.

Not necessary as beer is sold and prices are very reasonable. The issue is the lines are too long and slow.

Some of the issues seem very similar to those at LSU with the monetization of tailgating but the cheap concessions should help.

Couldn’t make a game this year so can’t speak to lines.

LSU is still top dog, although the Cajun fans will swear they’re not interested in LSU

That doesn’t sound too low, what’s the capacity of Cajun Field?

Is this really a thing? Because I have a handful of friends from the Laffy area that are Bama fans
