College football attendance down again in 2019. What's the problem?

FBS attendance decreased again in 2019, continuing a now six-year trend. The top division of college football experienced its lowest ticket sales since 1996, according to CBS Sports.

It’s the eighth time in nine years that fan attendance has dropped.

In the past decade, the sports media landscape has evolved at a breakneck pace. High-definition highlights are posted on social media mere seconds after each play’s conclusion. Top tier collegiate athletic conferences now have their own television networks available their regional cable packages.

TV ratings for college football broadcasts are increasing.
