Where were the Semi crowds?

Last updated : 11 April 2004 By Firparkcorner

Saturday’s game featured Inverness and Dunfermline and a paltry 13255 spectators rattled round a national stadium which was three quarters empty.

Sunday saw Livi bring their usual small band to the party but together with ‘the greatest fans in the world’ they could only amass 26152.

'Well fans pour into Hampden last year.

Where were all the fans? Easter shopping? Watching on subscription television? Or just not interested? Motherwell fans will easily remember the sunny day last year when we played the other half of the Old Firm in the cup semi. Even then the attendance failed to beat the thirty thousand barrier.
Dundee and ICT competed in the other semi last year and almost reached fifteen thousand.

Have you any explanation for these poor figures? If so please give us your opinion on the messageboard.
