Look forward to seeing you guys on here more!
Yes enjoy Pitt fans. Don't dirty the place up too much.
The best thing is that it's finally looking like we have a team to be proud of this season.
Evans looks like he has done a great job putting together a good defensive squad. Offense always seems to take awhile to come around but you're sure to get results this year.
Man I wish you guys didnt have Evans or Kutney or Rolko. It almost didnt feel right wanting you gys to loose when you played us.
The Hounds should do very well in the new set up. Now to see who there going to wipe their backsides on....
how does pittsburgh riverhounds attendance do? I saw Pitt university is building a new stadium. good place to go from the normal crappy high school with football lines on it? The seating is kinda small. I think it was a little bit below 1,000 seats. BUT its only a grandstand so maybe add some more blechers around to crank up the capacity a bit. also. location? will the fans go there? is it on the other side of the city for the team?
I've been told, in no uncertain terms, that Pitt's new stadium is not a possibility. It's too small. The Hounds average 1k-1.5k per game. I think they are still holding out hope that they will be able to build their own stadium.
I think fans are MORE likely to go to Pitt however than CV. CV is about 30 mins south of the city. You're basically eliminating all of your potential fans in the North Hills since Pittsburghers simply refuse to cross more than one river to go anywhere.
One thing is certain, CV is an awful place to watch football and I believe it keeps fans away.
1,000 between 1,500 is pretty good attendance. the pitt stadium sits 735 people. they could another grandstand with the same capacity and maybe have a stand with smaller capacity for the "steel army" at one of the ends of the stadium. A specific stadium for the riverhounds sounds ok but do they have enough money after they build it to keep the club stable?
That's the 5 million dollar question...literally.
Indeed, it does. My wife's from Ross Twp. and rabid soccer fans in the North Hills seem not to know the Hounds exist.
Chartiers bites both in terms of the venue itself and the distance from so many soccer fans from the North Hills. You won't "unleash...the Hounds" there, ever.
A soccer-specific-stadium somewhere by Station Square would be friggin awesome. Crowds of soccer fans parading down Carson Street might be too far-fetched a dream, but who knows...?
Yeah it's a shame there's not a field there at the bottom of the South Side near Station Square of Carson Street. It would be a perfect spot for all the high school teams to play and we could use it on Saturday evenings. That would be the ideal solution.
Yes, that's an ideal spot. I love Brewskie's and would love tumbling across the street pre and post match!
It'll never happen. Hounds have already said as much. I am done until they move out of CV. It blows. The school blows. The administration their blows.
