    Reckon the Storm final next week should get a similar crowd.

    It is hard to tell. You would think people are hanging out for footy but even with reduced capacity games still aren't selling out.

    Hopefully the finals change that

    Bitter sweet feeling seeing crowds come back into the NRL. Being in Vic, I'm very envious! But it's great to see

    I think if the pricing is cheap it could get 25k. The Brisbane folk have been starved of good football and the likely scenario of Melbourne v Roosters is a ripper day out for a neutral. Now that the capacity has been lifted If it’s Melbourne v Parra we could see 30k.

    They should price tickets the same as a normal match. Around $25. I was watching some old finals games yesterday and you forget how much of a difference a big crowd makes. Hopefully Souths win tonight and it is Storm v Parra.
    Crowds in Brisbane for Storms two games and AFL should be interesting. AFL has most tickets priced above $60. Can’t see them cracking more than 5k - 8k for games not involving Lions.
    What is the Canberra’s capacity for the semis? If 50% - 75% they should sell out.

    Looks like another week where the NRL has out scored the awFuL by a few thousand

    Hehe. No AFL games this week so correct. Has anyone actually been keeping tabs?

    Which is actually quite ridiculous.

    There is no legitimate reason why at the every least they shouldn't be allowed 50% capacity. It should actually be 75% or more.

    Knights fans section sold out yesterday

    Limited availability for category 1

    I’m optimistic of 25-30k but the track work on the CC and Newcastle line could turn a lot of travelling fans away

    Canberra single tickets only.
    ANZ can only get eight tickets together in Cat 1. Could top 30k
    Suncorp can’t get eight seats together, limited selections if six. Hopefully 20k.
    Tickets selling very, very well.

    Interestingly, up in QLD, the AFL has gone for profits in the Saints v Bulldogs game rather than a bigger crowd, tickets are $35 - $93 and looks like only 10k available. Strange way to promote the game. Well done to NRL/Storm offering $20 tickets. Smart.

    Other three AFL finals sold out but NRL won’t be far off the AFL this week and depending on match ups could possibly beat them for the overall finals total.

    Probably a good chance Storm will outdraw the Lions then? Assuming its the same prices

    Canberra and Penrith games should have been played at ANZ

    8,000 and 9,600 rather than 40,000
