    That would certainly insure that not many would leave early until after the traditional jersey swapping at FT

        Chelsea FC Women vs Arsenal Women for example had an attendance of 2,020 which if you compare to Non League games nearly 1000 more than most
        Not great though is it? I mean that is a high profile game in the capital, and in case we forget the women's game has been around for decades. The real problem though is that such events are disproportionately covered by the BBC, partly due to the fact they've been priced out of top line events. There is no question that the BBC are hyping minority sports for that reason.

        I'll give you an example. MotoGP is a world championship sharing some of the same venues as F1, routinely getting bigger crowds. The BBC no longer have any media rights. At four MotoGP rounds this year including two in Europe, involving Brit competitors, one of whom was in the race to be world champion, crowds exceeded 100k . BBC coverage was abysmal compared to minority sports and women's sports. This is why people get cynical about the women's coverage: it's being disproportionately hyped.
