ESPN did a story on how many people are needed

For an English pro soccer match even if there are no fans. Teams, medical staff, paramedics, security, ballboys, officials, video replay crew, technical support. Their estimate is 300 people or more. But that’s soccer, where the active roster for each game is 18 players. The SEC’s travel roster limit for football is 70 players (Big Ten is 74, and the home team can dress out as many as it wants), managers, trainers, much larger staff, more referees, etc. I could see 600, 700, maybe more.

Matt, that might be something to ask Yurachek or one if his underlings about. What would it take at UA even with no fans?
