Albany-- Although they lost, Saturday night's Wildcats game was a big success with attendance.

Management says that South Georgia fans turned out in record numbers for the last game of the season against the Green Bay Blizzard. All tickets were sold out for the game and over 8,000 fans turned out. Leaders say despite the number of losses this season, fans helped to make this first season of arena football a big win.

"Next year we're going to be here and if you didn't get to see any of the games this season, you have next year to come see it. We're going to do a lot of off-season stuff, already making preparations to do things now for sponsorships," says Sales Manager Tony Natoli.

A good portion of Saturday night's attendance came from some area businesses and sponsors who were given tickets as a "thank you" for a season of support. Leaders feel this season is a starting point for a bigger and better season next April.
