With the member on sale done, does anyone know how many tickets are available to the general public?
Yep, same. It's a shame
Likewise, its usually a mad scramble for a plane ticket that doesn't cost a kidney for me! Oh well more to spend on the beer and pizza this year
They're not including it in the weekly TV ratings. You get sporadic PTV numbers but not FTA or Telstra.
No FTA Sat night and poor Sydney audiences cost us the regular season rating war.
and getting next to nothing out of QLD too
A ‘few thousand left’ should be snapped up tomorrow.
Will be interesting to see if the AFL GF also sells out. Tickets are super expensive, and less than 20k sold so far (30k max).
Both codes will make sure it does
Well I was wrong! AFL sold out in 15 mins this morning. That is $12mill of revenue (average ticket price around $400).
NRL selling ok - cheaper sections have only limited availability. Storm section sold out but still tickets left in Panthers section. Should be sold out by end of the day. Still, only around $5mill revenue at an average ticket price of $130.
NRL needs to do something to change their ticketing model.
Thats surprising and doesnt seem right, didnt think we had much of a following in Syd
The AFL sold a total of about 18k tickets to competing club members and general public with cheapests seats at $185. The rest are corporates.
Panthers obviously don’t have a following in the same mould as Eels or Souths
Yep. I got that wrong. Still seats left in all categories.
It is the way ticketek does it. Depending how many tickets you are trying to buy then different areas will come up as sold out
why has this grand final not officially sold out yet ?
are NRL fans in Sydney kidding?
its just 40K , half of recent years that sold out in those years ... days ago
I know for a fact , Raiders fans have put their tickets up for sale & as of this morning they still haven't been sold
and yes , I know those raiders tickets are still .... sold , but my concern is fans , certainly of penrith aren't hunting down spare tickets like their lives depended on it
probably because one teams fanbase are in lockdown and the others mustn't be big enough to fill it alone? but still, you'd think sydney would be able to gather more than 40k panthers fans/interested neutrals (im sure it will sell out before kickoff too)
I did call this last week. Closed borders locking out one teams fans. Was never going to sell out
They always fill the seats somehow. Just like Storm v Roosters in 2018 and vs Cowboys in 2017.
They could potentially be selling more than 40k considering people with freebies won’t turn up in the rain
Both those examples had the borders open to let interstate fans in and had the Public holiday the day after. Also didn't come onsale 3 weeks out from the event
oh please , you think that anymore then 5000 melbournians have ever travelled to an NRL grand final ?
Id doubt it
its astounding that Sydneysiders can't fill it all by themselves
Penriths fans & every other teams fans wanting to see the storm beat
You think those from Qld don't come? What about those from regional areas that come and stay the night when it has a public holiday the next day?
Then those who won't go in big crowds with Covid.
Fact is there are plenty of reasons why people aren't going to games this year
