Great Advert For Scottish Football and a Local Derby
Sadly Scottish football attendances are in free fall, (even the mighty jags) however i think yesterdays attendance was quite good for a mid table SPL side playing the team at the bottom of the first division.
Over the last five years (maybe more) crowds of this size and even lower are the norm for cup semi finals, even for semis involving one half of the old firm, in fact today's tie between Celtic and Falkirk will probably only attract a similar number.
Whether this is only happening in Scotland, i don't know, maybe someone can produce attendance figures for European countries of a similar size, at this stage of their national cup competitions.
