Alabama A-Day: Spring Game Attendance More Than Highest NFL Average

Cred: John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

In another example that college football is big business, here’s a side-by-side comparison of Alabama’s A-Day spring game attendance (since Nick Saban’s arrival) with the Washington Redskins’ average home attendance for a season.

Lost Lettermen, who created the graphic, chose to compare Alabama to the Redskins because Washington owns the NFL’s highest average attendance between 2007 and 2013.

In four of the seven years, Alabama had a higher total than Washington’s season average. In the other three years, the Tide was slightly lower than the Redskins. For an overall average during the last seven years, Alabama has welcomed just over 2,000 more fans through the gates for A-Day than Washington has for each home game.

Remember, this is not regular-season attendance for Alabama. This is a glorified scrimmage.

Football and football, that’s what Alabama does.
