Irrespective of what numbers they need to break even, I actually thought a sales target of 18500 was very conservative. They should beat it easily.

Early summer, after Saputo opened, there were a number of weakly attended games(17k, 12k, 14k, 12k, 15k and lastly 15k on July 18th) but after they added the ticket packs and Di Vaio and Nesta came in, plus natural momentum, we pretty much sold out every game.

After July 18th its 19.4k, 18.5k, 19.4k, 20k, 20.5k, 20k

All the Bolded games are sellouts, since the stadium's north end stands were not complete till september.

Official seated capacity is 20,341

Given the numbers they need to turn a profit, I wonder how fast ticket prices will rise? They are already some of the highest in the league.
