The same article is saying that an average of
tickets need to be sold per game for the team to break even. Last year we were at 17000. Mr Legendre confirmed that the team's budget this year is 19 millions.
I have a hard time believing this. I know those numbers don't come from you but that would be pretty dumb by the org to bet on having a full house to not be in the red. I highly doubt that, especially considering the team is owned by a smart person.
They would never invest so much and build a big stadium/join the MLS.
One thing's for sure though, they have a big selling job to do. But if the team is successful next year, you'll see the number rise drastically. Took the Als a while before being successful in selling their product, and it took a couple of grey Cups
