I attend tons of basketball games every year in person, but this post is not about me. It is however about showing respect for basketball fans.
You want more fans.? Turn the dam music down.
Administrators, ADs and coaches come up to me all time wringing there hands saying, “where are the fans”?
Well, I can say for sure it is not the only reason , but it is a reason , the music is just too loud.
Not everyone, but some game management people tell me, “ the players like loud music”. They also like playing before more than a handful of fans.
Well yes they do, but players also like good coaching, good playing conditions, good food and nice uniforms.
A great fan experience will bring fans and bring them back. Turn down the music, at least so you don’t have to shout to the person next to you, who is one foot away.
This is a certainty, keep turning up the music and there will not be plenty of good seats available, there will be PLENTY OF GOOD SECTIONS AVAILABLE.
