It was $20 a ticket for last nights Double Header and $10 a ticket for tonight’s single game.
I don’t know how many more people would turn up if it was free.

Edit: I just realised the initials for double header is gets filtered to FAKE

Huh

Fake

lol.

The segregating and sexist language in your quote almost sounds like it came from Vlandys himself, though is a long way from what would be a successful marketing campaign.

That's a little precious. It was a reference to V'Landys comments on AFL in QLD last year and a Lord of the Rings meme lol.

99c instead of $1 is still a successful marketing technique. People will turn up for free lunch.

It's probably hard to do that, given that you don't know what will happen by the start of the first game.
It is pretty easy for refunds to be put through, pretty much just a few buttons being clicked from the ticketek/ticketmaster end. They should be organised and have the games on sale

Should just make every ticket $10 and $5 for kids. Then if it gets cancelled people are likely not to ask for money back. 10,000 at $10 and reasonable looking stadium is a better outcome for the game than 3,000 at $30-40.

Ah sorry, I didn’t pick up the references

Ticket sales in Brisbane today are garbage. Looks like 15k.

I was expecting more. Neutrals (unfortunately) are probably at the lions. the 20k-ish ticketed Broncos members would be refusing to put more $$$ into painful viewing. Mask mandate won't help with drawing in punters.

There is a chance that Melbourne Penrith next week will draw more.

Why the restricted seating arrangements at Suncorp?

No covid cases in Brisbane last time I looked.

Was just looking at the costs for Manly v Cronulla at Redcliffe. $39 for half way. $35 for B reserve. $19 for GA. Given the crowds so far. You think they would go easier. Say $29 for halfway. $20 for B reserve. $10 bucks as they do for QLD cup games for GA.

Looking as I'd like to see Dogs v Tigers next week at Redcliffe.

I paid $100 yesterday for a lower eastern seat on the 25m line for NQ v Bris (and obvs the Tigers V Warriors prior)

f**king ridiculous.

The NRL should just sell Brisbane COVID memberships to the Brisbane public that cover all NRL games during this period or maybe sell the memberships per stadium.

I suspect ticketing is still in the hands of the "home" club.
Yes I would imagine so. Here is yet another opportunity for the NRL to take control and apply a bit of strategy in a region that they are supposedly wanting to expand in and they are not really making the most of it. As you quite often say though, the NRL and strategy don't really go hand-in-hand.
