With ongoing construction on the West End Zone Project, Sanford Stadium’s capacity for G-Day was going to be 10-15,000 less than its usual 92,746.
However, Georgia fans still showed up in droves to Athens, filling up just about every available seat in the stadium.
The officially announced attendance: 82,184.

The next-closest SEC spring game crowd is Florida, at 53,015 people in The Swamp in Gainesville.
Smart and the Georgia program challenged fans with “What’s important now?” all winter and spring, encouraging them to come and and support the new Bulldogs team after last season’s SEC Championship and Rose Bowl victory, despite falling short in the title game in Atlanta.
2018 is now Georgia’s second-most attended G-Day ever, trailing just 93K Day in 2016, Kirby Smart’s first spring game.
