Equals about $62,000,000 in extra revenue if each fan spends about $100 per game.
I'm ready for the $120,000,000 payroll...as long as it's spent wisely, not just spent for the sake of spending.
It's not 20 bucks, that's an imaginary number.
But so is the 100 you're accounting for, the real number is likely closer to 30 - 50, and keep in mind that's not all pure profit.
They're making money though, you can rest assured of that, probably a lot.
Television ratings are up too.
Rogers own complete television rights which broadcasts all over Canada. I imagine the amount of profit they make is unbelievably high.
500 levels are $16. Beers are $9.50. There's no way the average person spends close to $100. Most of the good seat are even sub $50.
Average person in attendance is probably closer to $50 in total contribution and that still may be high. Plus, they aren't making 100% margin on each visitor. The math isn't so simple and even still, youre way off
"Average person in attendance is probably closer to $50 in total contribution and that still may be high."
That's probably low. Keep in mind average ticket price numbers add up every seat in the house, sold or not sold, in reality the lower/expensive seats sell more than the nose bleeds. However only the Jays would know where the extra sales are coming from this year.
"Most of the good seat are even sub $50."
Not really, not for decent series/weekend series at least.
Tickets in the 100 level bowl section for tomorrows game will go for 52 to 79 bucks.
100 level OF seats go for 38 to 41 bucks.
200 level seats = 32.50 to 81 dollars, and you're not paying less than 52 until you get into the OF.
I'd say all/very nearly almost all the good seats are above 50 bucks most of the time.
The pricing is reasonable, but they're definitely making a fair bit of change off of those that show up.
I pay 64$ for flex.pack seats in section 118. Regular price is 71$ plus service charges of 6.25.
It's getting scary at the concession counter when you have to pay 10$ plus for a meal for kids etc..
I think Rogers has a deal with Aramark, so they get a percentage of sales.
gate revenue for the Jays was $36 million USD 2 years ago.
<Ya, and attendance is up 40% since then, but I honestly would NOT trust the Forbes numbers for stuff like that.
You'd think it'd be a reputable source but the amateurishness of those baseball pages should give you pause.
I mean they use a logo from 10 years ago, they use player expenses from 2011 but gate and operating income data from 2010... really sloppy stuff, might be right, could be ass backwards though.
