This is something that bothers me personally every weekI come in Peace...
This is not a Troll thread
I was wondering why there was such a low crowd number today. I know 2pm timeslot on a Sat isn't the best. From a Syd point of view Bud's out, and they're going to miss finals, but I wanted to ask what your individual reasons were for not going to the game, or you did go to the game and why your mates didn't.
I've lived in Sydney for 20 years in Lilyfield/ Leichhardt next to the Anzac bridge (no traffic I can drive to George st in the cbd in 5 min. I know the Westcox M4 tunnel means I get get from here to Giants stadium in just over 20 min. I know the train from Central to the ground...
I just couldn't understand why stands were closed and there were empty seats in every bay that was open... in a venue that has a Capacity of only 24,000.
From what I can tell Sydney has about 65,000 members and GWS 25,000.
That's 90,000 members in a hometown derby, yet stands were closed.
Now, I have reached out to a contact at Giants stadium and told them I think their pricing structure is completely out of wack and their charging for seats like they are Manchester United playing at home. I've also heard that GWS members who can get into every game until this one were told they needed to buy a reserved seat just for todays game. These things clearly affected attendance...
I've also heard alot of other stories I won't go into because I don't buy the reasons.
I would like to give a fair overview of feedback if I'm asked, as to why this derby is probably the lowest crowd ever.
(p.s - try to give me opinions not questions, i've put a similar thread on Swans board and I just want to gather evidence as to why people didn't feel like it was worth going... I dont want to debate it here, I'd rather debate it with Giants stadium.
I'd appreciate your specific reasons
Thanks in advance guys.
P.s. close win today, would have been nice to experience in person.
Can't understand it myself
I don't see the point in being a member if you don't go and support the team
