    I dunno mate, you’ve had an awesome year. Wouldn’t you want more of your brethren to see your team in action?

    Are we more likely to win playing at home or in the soulless ANZ? Same for Canberra you do whatever increases chances for the win

    Agreed but don’t think ANZ would’ve been soulless with a big Penrith crowd, though.

    ANZ is always souless. Horrid stadium for NRL. The new renovations may have helped a bit...well it couldn't be worse lol

    If you have learnt a home final it deserves to be played there!

    Lions game sold out. About 27k I think, so Storm would need to draw more than that. Unlikely, but would be brilliant and more than they would have got in Melbourne.

    So they are only charging too much and restricting tickets to 10k for the other games not featuring the lions? if so then yeah your right - strange way to grow the game

    AFL finals tickets same pricing as last year. First week starting at $35. Most tickets are $60 - $100. No discounts even for non Lions games @ Gabba, which is strange. Under 10k won’t be a good look in a 40k stadium. GF starting at $300. They will either look very silly or make a lot of money - depending on which teams are playing.
    Are many NSW/Qld people reluctant to attend due to COVID? Surely the NRL could wait to see who is playing in the GF before selling tickets for tickets today for $50. Unlikely I know but imagine it is Souths v Parra, surely they could sell 40k easily at $300.

    Queenslanders aren't reluctant. The 28k to the Gabba sold in minutes, clubs like Richmond and Collingwood will draw ok in Brisbane, so I don't think they are too worried. Melbourne v Parra looks like it is going really well and about to enter level 7. I'm not sure if they have been selling the bays at 50% or 75% because the map is not interactive.

    Not sure if they held back tickets or got an approval to increase capacity but plenty of roosters fans on the fb page have reported being able to by tickets for tomorrow's game int he last hour or so.

    That is the most frustrating thing with ticketek. Always holds tickets back

    Wow 17k Souths fans turned up when 40k could have. The NRL should remember that for next time their club thinks they deserve a home final. They should have had it at Newcastle.
