Nope. Capacity will be no less than 40k while they rebuild out.
Paramatta Stadium is becoming the 35-40k place, no?
And ANZ is supposed to reshape into Suncorp shaped arena, with around 70k capacity.

Or have I been reading the wrong articles.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

No, that's right. Parra is being demolished and rebuilt. ANZ is being re configured. It's staying open during the reconfiguration with the capacity not going below 40k during that time.

2 rubbish teams.
Both flogged the week before.
Terrible time slot.

I'm surprised they managed to get that many people. Well done.
So the club has provided us with one of the crapiest squads playing out of the crapiest venue, resulting in bugger all people wanting to go to games and you congratulate them.
Yeah, well done to the club.

Ok, well bring one over here for once. We'll provide 20,000 plus. I'm sick of only ever seeing Rabbits, Roosters, Warriors and Storm jerseys about the place. There's plenty of upside to having a game over here you know.

Yep, Perth love their sport. Can't wait to see that new stadium in action.
Dunno why NRL still refuse to give Perth a bone?
Look at their BBL figures. Each season it's hard to get tickets to a Scorchers game. Pretty sure they sold every game out in the season gone by.

Western Force crowds are sparse, but that's cause their team are absolute trash.

The new stadium wont be for league. The union and soccer teams have a great stadium now which league also uses when required. It'll be on show again in two weeks when the Rabbits once again bring a game here vs the Titans.

We've all got an opinion of Russell Crowe, but he's no fool when it comes to spreading the word about his club. He's managed to build quite a following over here through bringing games across for a number of years now.

It seems everyone goes for the bunnies. (makes me want to throw up)

But if it wasn't for him, we'd never see a game.

Lol Same Tigermama. Ratings will never stop me saying what I want especially from this person whom has openly said it before that he won't travel to Campbelltown. Each to there own.

Would like to see a game taken to Perth and make the trip over as well for a bit of a break.

More important than the actual crowd figure, i'd like to know how much money the club lost on the weekend?

Its been reported in the past that to hold a match at Campbelltown costs the club around $70,000-$80,000.00 per match (could be more these days).

Add to that the extra costs of the Family Day, Equipment Hire, Security, etc. and i'm thinking it would have been hard for the club to see a single dollar once the bean counters had finished up on Saturday night.

We should be holding as many games at ANZ as they will let us, a token game at LO and CSS, with the remainder of matches shopped around to the highest bidder... Central Coast, New Zealand, Interstate, Regional Centres.. whoever is willing to cough up the dough.

Does anyone know the real cost to play at CSS or LO they play NSW cup at these grounds all the time.

No wonder they need NRL funding :roll:
