## How many people fit on a bleacher?

Generally, figure the average person takes up 18 inches of space on a bleacher seat. That is the industry standard. Therefore, for 4-row bleachers, consider these lengths and seating capacity. 7.5 feet – 20 seats (90 inches divided by 18 inches equals 5 seats, times 4 rows equals 20 seats).

## How is bleacher capacity calculated?

To find the gross seating capacity of a bleacher, take the length of the unit divided by 18” and then multiply by the number of rows in the unit. Net seating is the gross seating, minus the seating lost due to aisles and handicap space requirements.

## How do you calculate stadium capacity?

The formula to be used in calculating capacity is:

- Rows x Length x Inches / Personal Space = Seating Capacity.
- R x L x I / P = C.
- 20 x 30 x 12 / 24 = 300.
- 20 x 30 x 12 / 18 = 400.

Typical bleacher sections consist of from 2 to 15 rows with row lengths ranging from 7.5 feet to 30 feet for small popular models. Planks may be spliced together to form longer systems in most any length and therefore the seating capacity of bleachers can range from 10-10,000 people.
