They will be quite happy if they got that many,I don't see it getting more than last year.It will be a small crowd.
Maybe 8k or so. Bad timeslot and plastic opponent.
Ponting Stand closer to wing a good place. (yes higher than GA but the hill can get pretty awful for not much less).
I suppose the folks of Tassie should get off their arses and show some interest in AFL footy.Its a bad look for Hobart though,if it was a twilight game I would of come down with 2 of my Friends.
They do show up in decent numbers when Gws doesn't play,no where in Australia can get a good crowd to this fixture.
The only games that are getting less the 10000 are against Gws,they don't have a supporter base anywhere apart from a small supporter base in Sydney.The point is though there doesn't appear to be any 'banging the door down' by Taswegians to see North Melbourne played in Hobart on a regular basis.
If they want a 'fuller season' - ie 4 games in Hobart - they need to show interest and enthusiasm. At this stage it appears they are picking and choosing the games/teams that suit them in order to show up. That doesn't inspire confidence that there is a sustainable long term market down there for us.
It may also suggest that Tassie will only support their own side - not a fly in fly out arrangement like we have.
From North's perspective it appears all we are doing at the moment is being a little bit pregnant in both markets - no home games in Melbourne for the months of June and July is just disastrous and a key factor why we are not achieving growth in the local market. Getting less than 10k to games in Hobart shows there is no immediate alternative market there either.
I am not saying we abandon Hobart - but the move to 4 home games there seems to be one of many poor decisions the club made in the 2017-early 2019 era.
Hopefully the review of Operations under way now concludes that 2-3 games per year is the best outcome for us in Hobart.
Tassy doesn't deserve us.North Melbourne are reducing ticket prices to next Sundays game in Hobart against gws and a lot of free tickets also about.Considering this game is a unpopular twilight time I believe it could be lower than the 7300 that attended the same game last last year,I'm tipping a crowd of 4-5 thousand. Why have the afl rostered this game in Hobart for a third year in row,when they know this game can't get a decent crowd in a small market like Hobart.
