Not only did the St. Louis fans break the XFL’s attendance record with a 29,554 strong home opener, they’ve also been pumping up numbers around the country. 4 out of 5 of the XFL’s most in-demand games featured the BattleHawks, and the team’s tickets are also valued highest, at $86 on average per VividSeats.

We’ve already seen how energized St. Louis is to have a football team again. After losing the NFL Cardinals to Arizona in the late 80s, and the Rams to LA in 2016 their fans are pouring out in droves to support their new team because St. Louis is a football kind of town.
There have been calls for the Dome to open up more seating as ticket demand has skyrocketed, and they might be forced to start populating the upper decks. Even if they just opened it up to arena seating, they could fit 40,000 fans. That could easily be filled and they have the ability to open the stands up to 67,000 at maximum capacity.
St. Louis Fans are hungry for football, and our very own Marcus Hampton was in the crowd.
Battlehawks fans have drank all the beer at the Budweiser tailgate. I’m not kidding. All of the beer is gone an hour before kickoff.— Marcus Hampton (@TheHalfAfrican) February 23, 2020
Apparently they’re hungry for beer too.
