    In 2008 which was there first year at Skilled Park they had an average crowd of 21,785 fans per game. Four of there home games drew more then 25,000 fans.

    In 2009 they averaged 19,345 fans per game. A decrease of 2,440 fans per game. Which works out to a 11 percent frop in numbers. Only one of there home games drew more then 25,000.

    For this season, well it is very much early days and they have played only 2 games at home. At the moment they average 13,816 per game. With a high crowd of 16,112 and a low of 11,521 for last nights game. By the way that crowd last night, 11,521 is there lowest ever crowd at Skilled Park.

    As I said its early days for this season. But the Titans and the NRL have to be a little concerned with the crowd figures. Next season the new AFL team comes in to play and I bet you they are sitting back taking note of the crowd figures for the Titans.

    Crowd looks like it could almost be an all time low at Suncorp.

    I'd say 25-28k at Suncorp.

    holy cow,

    just looked at the prices for the MCG for the AFL this yr

    Gate Sales: General Admission
    Category Price
    Adult $21.30
    Child (6-14 years) $2.50
    Child (five and under) Free

    Concession $13.30
    Family $42.60


    This is how you get kids and families to the game. A family ticket to the MCG is about half the price of a family ticket on the GC. reserved tickets tell the same story

    I didn't realise Skilled was so expensive.

    Going to the fumbleball in Melbourne is cheaper than Lara Bingle.

    Always has been.

    but you get people into the habit of going.

    taking 2 kids to the MCG costs a max of $26.30.

    same as having jnr players, you have a whole generation of people for who going to the footy is part of their existence. give up a little bit of money now, for a lifetime of income.

    they have 100,000 seats, why charge an average of 30 bucks a seat????

    if suncorp had 100k seats, they would be cheaper.

    today at the game I thought there could be no more than 25-30k there - thinking 28 as my guess - but 5 minutes into the game I looked up at the corners of the second tier and they had filled a fair way. Still, I was surprised when they announced 32k and a bit. Never thought warriors would draw that many

    If we get worse I doubt our crowds will stay up so high....such a crowd may well become sub 30.

    ANZ Stadium games need to have reduced prices, especially for kids up to 15.

    19,738 if you want the exact figure.

    And 32,338 at Brisbane.

    TBH the Sydney crowds haven't been that bad - the 15-20k are what you'd expect. We've just lacked a 30k+ to bring the average up. IMO we should really be aiming to get at least 1 crowd around that mark every round in Sydney.

    looks like you guys need more kiwis going to games down there.

    of the 30k in brisbane, I would think about 10-15k were kiwi supporters.

    we have seats in the centerline premium section on the 40m....but the amount of kiwis who were there (or aussies who gave their member cards to kiwi mates) was amazing. at one stage the kiwis chanted and it might as well have been a stadium in aukland.

    sydney should try and get some 30s.

    Well the only way Sydney is going to get 30k games is by playing them at ANZ or SFS.

    Sydney needs some incentives put in place for season ticket holders to attend another teams game at a reduced rate, especially at SFS and ANZ.

    I am a Saints ticket holder, and would have gone to the Penrith game Saturday night and the Dogs game today if I could do it for a fair price.

    At suburban grounds, you should only be able to get tickets at the gate, and only sell a limited number (so if it's close to a sell out, they don't offer the reduced price on game day).

    At ANZ & SFS, should be $5 or $10 for all games, and only GA tickets. Would give the crowds a small boost with no effort and extra revenue in gate sales and food & bev

    And that is a good deal, but what harm would it be if it was opened up for you to all games at ANZ in the regular season?

    Make it $5 for all season ticket holders of other clubs to all ANZ games, and get people in the habbit of getting back out to the footy, especially at a ground that not many like.

    Something can be done, and until the ground reguarly holds 50k+ it should be in place for everyone to get out to the footy more often.

    It's only been a talking point for about 12 months now...
    If both teams are cruising the game should fair-dinkum crack 40k
