Any matches on Sat 6 September?

A tourist's question: I will be over to Scotland from 3 through to 7 September (early morning). Macedonia are due to play Scotland on 6th September and thus no League games have been scheduled for the 6th; the Challenge Cup 3rd round matches will be played on Sunday, 7th September. Does anyone know ...

I am sure David will provide us with the correct record crowd... Unfortunately I do not have the two references at hand right now. According to a short history of the club a Scottish Cup replay vs Berwick attracted 1,650 (must have been in January 1996).

QOS Scottish Cup crowds?

Last season QOS played Hibs in the SC QF (24 Feb 2007). The crowd given at the time was 6,198. However, according to the Rothmans 2007-2008 the attendance was 6,400 ... Last weekend's Cup tie vs Dundee was attended by 6,278. David, I think I know your answer already. Anyhow, what do you think of the...

Matt, the SFL appear to be using different figures to calculate the averages than the ones which appear in the match reports. For example Livingston's lowest home gate according to the averages is 1,355. Yet the match against Queen of the South on Oct 27th is given as 721. Similarly when St Johnsto...

Coming back to rather strange crowd figures: According to the Sunday Herald of 23 December, the actual attendance for the Celtic vs Hibs League encounter of 22 December was far smaller than officially given (minus at least 10,000). Generally speaking, are there any reliable sources which give actual...

Dundee Utd crowd vs Barcelona

Match reports for the Barcelona friendly gave crowds of 14,000, 14,500 or other. The response from the club is as follows: "The attendance was 14,223 as the match was a complete sell out, with every ticket take. I think the Courier is just a repeat of the oft used rounded up figures - much easier fo...

As a matter of fact, I have not been aware of the exact circumstances (I have not been to Raydale because it is an even longer way to get there from Switzerland than it is to go to other Scottish grounds, poor me ;-)). Thanks for the clarification!

Re: Scottish Cup crowds?

What about it? :?: Some sources speak of a crowd of 6,400 which seems to be inaccurate. Ground capacity is 6,412, though for various reasons it was unlikely to ever be filled (some of the capacity for instance is on a terrace inaccessable to the public). There was a delay in getting an official cro...
