Mets attendance: will they get to 2.6?

The Mets paid attendance last night was 24,384.

First some perspective from Paul:

Before anybody even thinks about griping about the Mets attendance tonight:

12,061 in Cincinnati
18,647 in Atlanta

Now some opinion from Walt the @formerdirtdart

Some time during the last road-trip, and the end of the first game of this home-stand, Mets/MLB adjusted the Mets attendance numbers.

The June 10th second game (Gm2 of Day-Night Doubleheader/split ticket dates) attendance was reduced from 28,072 to 14,733 (-13,339). This was a make-up game for the rain-out of the June 9th game. It was also Niese’s One-Hitter.

I only discovered the adjustment because I verify my total attendance numbers off of ESPN.com’s season attendance numbers, and after the Phillies game Friday my numbers weren’t matching. Whis surprised me since my numbers matched ESPN’s total attendance numbers when I sent you the original email of this reply at the end of August.

So, with this modification, and the recent games of this home-stand (including the massive 24K that showed for the first Pirates game) the season total attendance projection have dropped over 26,000.

Given this drop, I do not believe it is possible that the Mets will break 2.6 Million for the season.

Not surprising that Mets attendance is way down. I gave up my season tickets after 30 years! I have had enough! I could not resell the tickets to games I could not go to or I had to sell at a big loss. Stubhub is a major ripoff, allowing teams to get part of the second sale and is too expensive virtually assuring the ticketholder of a loss. Mets are not fan friendly and obviously have been putting a bad team on the field for years. Why buy tickets in advance, if I want to go I'll wait until I get the weather report, see if the team is worth watching. All major league teams are at risk with the ease of buying on the internet and not needing to buy well in advance

Mets attendance will be down from about 4 million in the last year at Shea to about 2.6 two years later in a new stadium. Bad ownership, bad team management, and a much too expensive stadium boils down to departing customers......at a fast rate.

Just so you know, it is physically impossible for the Mets to draw 4 million at Citi Field. Citi has roughly 27% less capacity than Shea
