Let's set bounds on the question. The smallest would be if each car only carried 3. The highest would be if each car only carried 4.

3*7 = 21
4*7 = 28

So the number of people at the game could have been any number between [21,28].
Which means it could have been either greater than or less than 25 but we don't know.
