Wouldn’t that end up before ICAC now - you can‘t be seen to bribe the police (McDonald’s no longer give them free burgers)

If we don't include magic round as individual games, and instead as whole day total, we are currently sitting at 3,958,860 fans through the gates including the first two weeks of finals. The average right now is 18,851 per game.
Brisbane vs Wahs - 51,000 (unsure if all corporate has sold / will show)
Total after this game - 4,009,860 (avg. 19,004)

This means that we will crack 4 mil for the first time in history. Great moment for the sport.

Panthers vs Storm- 35k (going off of that news article posted a few pages back for their expected crowd, may be lower, maybe not much higher).
Total after this game - 4,044,860 (avg. 19,079)

If we assume the GF draws 82,415 like last year, our end of season total is:
4,127,275 (numbers will fluctuate) avg. 19,376 per game. We needed AT least 4,260,000 to reach the average of 20,000 per game. So since a lot of people count magic round as whole days, we won't reach the illustrious 4 mil+ season with a 20k+ average. But that is nothing to be sad about. What a record breaking season this has been for attendances!

BUT If we include magic round as individual games (and going off the numbers provided above and assumptions):
Current total - 4,166,078
Broncos vs Wahs - 51,000
Panthers vs Storm - 35,000
GF - 82,415
End of season total - 4,334,493 avg. 20,349 per game

Either way, what a season for crowds. I really hope this is the beginning of crowds staying at the 4 mil range for years to come, and hopefully we can one day reach 5 mill for a season

Add to this Cronulla’s ground had a diminished capacity all year and we lost crowds due to venue changes caused by the WWC and there is no reason we wouldn’t have hit 4.5 million this year.

100% agreed. The sharks have only missed finals twice since 2012 (2014 and 2021) and have been more consistent than a lot of teams. I truly believe if Shark park was at it's original capacity, AND if we had Suncorp & Allianz available during the WWC month, we'd have hit 4.5 million.

Same same but different

Nice to see the Premiers Sporting Challenge back offering Rugby League tickets... for a while it was only GWS stuff they were giving away...
