    People, spectators, a crowd of xxxx, etc.

    I never use fans, but don't go overboard when others do.

    An announced crowd of XXXX. :) You don't know if the announced figures are reliable, and in fact, you often know they do not reflect the situation in the stands.

    I didn't see anything from the first post about "fans" that the context was in listing the announced crowd. It seemed to be about any reference to people at the game, but I could be wrong.

    I've never used "fans" when listing the announced crowd.

    Great. I'm saying ...

    ... should be preceded by announced. Or some other appropriate grain of salt should be given.
