2012 Marks Fifth Consecutive Season Of Attendance Declines For Penn State Football

Penn State Football

Ever since 2007, the Penn State football program has seen a drop in attendance at Beaver Stadium.

In 2012, the Nittany Lions averaged close to 97,000 fans per game whereas five seasons ago, the home attendance averaged 108, 917.

But the surprising part of that Penn State football statistic?

The lack of ticket sales might not solely be a function of the sexual abuse scandal involving former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, and the inactions by the Penn State University administration along with the late, Joe Paterno.

According to ESPN’s Sports Business Reporter, Darren Rovell, donation requirements that were established prior to the 2011 season weren’t really well-received by Penn State football fans. This season, the athletic department announced it wouldn’t increase season ticket prices or donation levels for the 2013 season.

Despite the continual drops in attendance, Penn State football will finish fifth in the country in average attendance.

    Epson has declared their “Claria” ink to be quite long lasting and you will see, on some of the third-party web sites, an acknowledgment of the OEM formula and their statement of their ink fading quicker than the OEM.
    There are numerous counterfeited brands and off-brands which have
    been produced that can fit into these ink jet printers but not deliver exactly the same high quality
    that Canon ink cartridges do. In order to get better result from your printing device, form a habit of cleaning the interior of your device at least once per
    month with a soft cloth.
