Great. So a competition that already sees a 60-70% drop in crowd figures when compared to regular H&A games will hamper any chance of us getting even a half decent crowd in by compromising our loudest and proudest fans
Even a small group in the shed makes a bloody decent noise. They sound amazing no matter where you sit
Wonder what would happen if we opted to use Dorrien Gardnes for the AFC games? Would the whole grass section be out of limits? Or will be required to put seating in? Asking for a friend
Who has said this? There doesn't seem to be anything like that in the Stadia regulations for the ACL (although I could only find the 2012 one). The only mention of seating etc is:
Chapter 6: Spectator-related areas 29. Stands and spectator facilities:
a) Each stand within the Stadia must be capable of being divided into separate sectors.
b) Seats for spectators must be individual, fixed (eg. to the floor), separated from one another, shaped, numbered, made of an unbreakable and non-flammable material and have a backrest of a minimum height of 30cm when measured from the seat.
c) The use of temporary stands is prohibited.
Yeah that’s true. I mean we’ve never had ACL here before and depends on opponent too. The marketing from Glory needs to be on the improve though to get people in, perhaps discounted tickets too initially, instead of posters in coffee shops.
Yeah they divide the draw into East and West zones.
Given the numbers Aus teams are pretty odds on the be drawn against a Chinese, Korean and Japanese team (in Fact, given no teams from the same country can be drawn together I think Australian teams are certainties to play teams from those countries).
