26. Or the ticket price ($400+) kept people away...

Remember 15 years ago, or so, when rain forced them to play on the third weekend of Wimbledon? Since they usually don't play on that weekend, the insanely overpriced tickets didn't go to the sponsors, corporations, and wealthy patrons. So they sold normal priced tickets - first come, first served. The energy and enthusiasm was off the charts, with the fans doing 'The Wave' for ten or fifteen minutes at a time.

It seems they would do the same thing for events that don't sell out. Even if they were forced to donate them to the underprivileged, it would create an amazing atmosphere.
