    How many are they expecting for tomorrows game?

    My guess is around 18000?

    My guess is that Spooky World will see a bigger crowd than Gillette Stadium tomorrow. Hate to sound cynical, but I think that's going to be the case. I'd say we'll be lucky to see something in the neighborhood of 13,000.

    I agree with the lower estimate and these are the reasons.

    3) BC is playing Notre Dame at noon--not a lot of time to make it from Chestnut Hill to Foxboro.

    2) The Pats are playing on Sunday so I think some casual fans are less likely to go to the same stadium twice in successive days.

    1) Those in the know realize that there will be a more meaningful (playoff) match-up between these same two teams in one or two weeks from now depending on the result.

    0) The 4 PM start will preclude a lot of folks with kids playing soccer in the afternoon from attending.

    Agreed, in fact - there have been posts in another thread which once again speak to conflicts with the early start time (4:00PM) and any number of area youth soccer matches.

    Weather looks to be partly sunny and in the low 50's at game-time.

    We'll just have to wait and see, but I'm not expecting a large turn-out.

    Sad to say, but I'd be surprised if there were more than 12,000 actual people in the stands (not tickets sold).

    I just hope that with the playoff ticket being included in the season ticket package, we'll get numbers comparable to the regular season. And since we've clinched a playoff berth with so much time to spare, it has given the front office much more time to get the word out, unlike in past years.

    The numbers go down as the team goes up

    2003 - 12,492

    12,492 - announced.
    How many were actually at the match?

    Gee, I wonder if the Krafts can see a trend in these numbers?

    The team gets better, the record is the best ever and the attendance is the lowest ever.
    But some people don't even want to admit that there is a problem here.

    Re: The numbers go down as the team goes up

    I'd say the announced number is legit, unlike the previous home game when about half of the 12,000 actually showed up.

    Lufty,
    I thought the exact same thing. I still feel like there might be some mistake. My friends and I can usually spread out a bit from the people who have seats around us, but our section (105) was pretty packed, and it looked like that was the case almost everywhere.
