Affliction Day of Reckoning Gate

January 27, 2009

Kevin Iole over at Yahoo/MMAJunkie has the numbers on the gate for Affliction Day of Reckoning. The paid attendance was 8,946 for a gate of $1,512,750. Rear Naked News contrasts Banned with Day of Reckoning:

Of the 13,228 who attended “Day of Reckoning”, only 8,946 paid (4,282 free seats). This means 32% of the audience did not pay. While it is typical to give away tickets, 32% is a huge number. At Affliction “Banned” in July, they sold 11,242 tickets and only gave away 24%(3,590). Adding to their problems, the live gate made $1.5 million. “Banned” made $2.1 million.

Any chance that the card reaches solvency will be based on their PPV performance. MMAPayout.com has been made aware of rumors/reports from those within Affliction of strong pre-buy numbers that project a higher than generally expected final number, but all figures are way too preliminary at this point have any validity.
