Depends on the year. Last year the AAC Champ was a chump.

Here's an update of all the bowls this season. They also have numbers for the previous season as well.

Looking at this, 20k - 25k is the average. Some more and some less. I'm not sure if these numbers are attendance (actual butts in seats) or tickets sold.

After watching a few games this season, I will say it is depressing viewing a game in an empty stadium.

I think it is tickets sold, not butts in seats. I'd say butts in seats would be 50%-75% of that number.

If that is the case, many of these bowls stadiums seating capacity only need to be 15 - 18k. Would love to see Savannah and Georgia Southern do something jointly with Armstrong Atlantic fields in the near future.

City of Savannah would be a great destination for fans. Unfortunately, it's most likely just a pipe dream.

You would see Charleston get a bowl game way before Savannah. Sorry, but Savannah can't hold a candle to Charleston as a destination city. Also, Charleston has more of a head start in trying to get a bowl and it almost happened a couple years ago before they put a stop to bowl expansion.

A lot of these bowl venues hold 30K+, I think the smallest is one of the SBC's.
