Football codes that have a 3 hour game seem to get big crowds.
About 12000 at Campbelltown?
24,000 / 2 = 12,000 + 3,424 = over half full
Still didn't look over half full!
But in reality, there wasn’t over 1 in every 2nd seat taken. They lie about their crowds more than any other sporting team I’ve ever seen!
Pissed down about an hour before kick off at Cambo, still going. Prob lucky to be 12k
10 of them were my sister’s family including a 5 week old baby. My brother in law, the ex-Jesuit, once told me that his family had supported Essendon since 1896. He got really upset when I burst out laughing and said my family had supported Annandale since 1908.
10+ of them make the trek from Maitland to Sydney twice a year and 1 trip to Melbourne
It’s not so much the league avg, though at a very static 14-15k for over a decade it’s a concern it isn’t improving at all, rather the number of games that draw under 15k. Far too many games draw bog avg 10-15k crowds. It’s a good job we have Brisbane, Newcastle and Melbourne boosting overall avg. Sydney is supposed to be our strength with so many teams in a massive population, it needs to deliver more. Hopefully more teams move to WSS and this sees an improvement.
Suburban grounds delivering again.
Parramatta will be number 2 this year in average crowds.. and id say will hold the second position to Brisbane, for next few years
Wet weather a big factor this weekend in Sydney!
And if they were in modern stadiums where they could sit undercover then wet weather wouldn't be as big of a turn off
Yes it would.
Other teams fans wanting to get a look at the new stadium?
Absolutely! In fact I'm off to the World nines in October for that very reason. Would have preferred to be watching the Lions playing the Kangaroos at that stadium but that isn't happening!
Pretty unlucky with some awful weather in the first 2 rounds. That rain last night at the Manly game was nuts.
Most people do sit on the camera side of the ground at the showgrounds, but yeah I don't think was 15k there.
I don't know why people are having a cry about a crowd which was over 20K...
Reality is Bulldog fans had enough since 2017 and nothing has changed since.
I was disappointed in the amount of Parramatta fans yesterday...
