(Richmond, IN)--The exact state ranking of Richmond’s Tiernan Center in terms of basketball seating capacity has been in dispute recently. One count had it 6th with a capacity of 8100. Another had it 4th at 7786. But, one thing is for sure…the Tiernan Center will no longer be anywhere in the top ten for seating after new bleachers were approved this week by the Richmond Community School Board. The new seating capacity of 5700 would rank the Tiernan Center roughly 16th in Indiana and make it smaller than the Spartan Bowl. In recent years, the Tiernan Center has not been even half full for most regular-season games.
