Query: Attendances at a glance?

In order to get a quick overview of football results in the UK in general and in Scotland in particular I used the sportinglife website as my basic source. Their results page was good old-fashioned, providing results, goalscorers AND attendances at a glance. Unfortunately their new website no longer...

I've expanded it with coverage of women's football plus player / squad lists for Highland League / Lowland League and Junior clubs.

I'll post on here when they go on sale.
Great, many thanks!

Re: Scottish League Grounds: Updated Record Crowds (6/11/05)

Just one Jags amendment: The December 2002 game was indeed on the 22th. However, both Rothmans and the Scottish Football League Review give 8,022. As in many cases, the even difference (of 2,000 in this case) seems to be a little bit suspicious. Hence, the 9,909 Cup crowd looks to be the largest rec...

Re: Scottish League Grounds: Updated Record Crowds (6/11/05)

"Partick – 13,141 / 10,022 v Rangers (Premier), 21 Dec 2002" "Partick Thistle Firhill Stadium 10,102 9,045 Celtic/League 23 Aug 2003" ^ Surely the 2002 crowd figure still stands or am I missing the point of what you're trying to do? I might have been a bit tired when I reviewed the list, but I thin...

Another amazing figure:

From a FOI standpoint the games at Celtic Park seem to attract a standard 26,083, this time for the Hibs game on 14th December :P

Re: Bare-faced lies

In the same context: Being aware of the controversy concerning FOI requests, it nonetheless is amazing, what the difference for Celtic's game on 1 Jan is: Official "attendance": 52,670 FOI figure: 26,083 (less than 50%...) https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/191413/response/468949/attach/3/14%200...

Re: FC Barcelona - Real Sociedad Wed 09/25/2013: Tickets?

Hi David, thank you very much. It seem as if I ruined your evening.... Nevertheless, your info confirms my gut feeling in terms of where to look out for and purchase tickets. Moreover, the apparently negligible things like taking along the ID etc. are very helpful to know. Should we travel down, I w...

FC Barcelona - Real Sociedad Wed 09/25/2013: Tickets?

David, or any other expert for that matter, I am sure you can provide me with handy hints: I might be in Barcelona when the League game v Real Sociedad takes place this September. As I might of course be tempted to go to Camp Nou, my main concern is whether there are realistic chances to get 4 ticke...

Scotland v Belgium, 6 Sep 2013: Public sale?

Will be over with 5 more guys and pretty anxious to get decent seats (North or South Stand, if possible; no hospitality packages required). Does anyone have any idea if and when a public ticket sale might start? Tickets for SSC members should have been available until 5pm today. However, the SFA's w...
