There is no way to make everyone stay except lock the gates.
I've always wondered why they had tv commercial breaks at the actual game. Why can't they just delay the action for folks on the tv, and let the games continue on at the stadium. I'm sure you can keep fans in their seats for 2 hours of almost non stop action, compared to almost 4 hours with a bunch of breaks in between the game.
