Despite a packed house, it seems that almost half of the fans in attendance at the World Series of Fighting 4 had gotten “comped” tickets.
MMAjunkie.com requested and received the live gate figures, which revealed that the event had 1,589 paid attendees and 1,186 comps, for a live gate total of $79,148.85. This number represents an average of $49.81 per ticket sold, and $28.52 per ticket issued.
According to the CSAC, the total fighter payout for the event was $225,000, so hopefully WSOF made enough on its NBC Sports Network deal to make up the difference.
This is a small step down from their last event, which brought in just over $100,000 on 1,107 tickets sold.
