Read a good article recently about why Los Angeles didn’t have an NFL team. Response was that there wasn’t a suitable stadium. What was there was too big!
The guts of the argument was that stadia should be built to match to forecast number of members that a club could potentially attract. If it is too big then the stadium will attract “walk in” spectators. The optimum number of seats a stadium should have should match the optimum number of paying club members.
The overall aim is to have a full stadium for each home game. Full of paying, season ticketed members. Complete with a members waiting list.
Obviously, this works in the USA because of their much larger population base. But I can understand the logic. It just means that we need a stadium of only 10,000 seat capacity.
