Expected Crowd



  • How many do people think we will get.

    Being a Leichardt regular but not going myself this week (3 week old baby) I was thinking about how many we would get

    Positives for Crowd

    • We are playing well
    • Still in top 8 contention

    Negatives

    • Weather - this is the big one esp at Leichardt and given its been wet all week and rain expected Sunday I’d say this will have a big negative on the crowd. People remember the Warm, Sunny SUnday afternoons when the game kicks off at 2pm.
    • Live on Channel 9 - This has hurt all crowds since brought in
    • 4pm start - Great for TV but horrible for attendance on a cold wet sunday afternoon

    Usually on a wet cold sunday afternoon esp lead up rain and cold we usually get about 7k but given we are still in finals contention then I am hopeful we get 10,000 on Sunday



  • I’m dragging a few people with me to the game. Weather is the big concern for me.

    One sort of advantage for a bigger crowd figure, is that you just don’t know what is going to happen with our split of games. Could be the second last one there.



  • Isn’t it true that the capacity is now only around 17, 000? Whatever it is, hopefully we get close to it.

    Just a word on the 4pm kickoff. I really hate it when they try and still sell it as afternoon footy. The first half is, but second half is played under lights. Not a traditional Sunday arvo at all. But at least 9 have moved out of the dark ages by not showing delayed games anymore.

    yup 17.5k

    i believe grant mayer said in a members conference or something a few years back, that the 20k+ crowds were essentially bs. the NRLs taken a harder stance on those inflations of numbers since around 2013 or 2014. i suspect they counted tickets sold, not people going through the gate

    also, OH&S has reduced the capacity somewhat



  • Seems to have been a lot more advertising for this game than I usually notice. There are a few reasons to show up for this one, as others have alluded too. Bumper crowd if the weather holds.

    Grant Mayer was essentially BS



  • honestly with the terrible weather we’ve had and the average conditions expected tomorrow i think 12-13k will be a good crowd



  • 11,500



  • I will be extremely surprised if we get a crowd of 17,000 with the predicted weather. 12,000 -13,000 would be the going rate I reckon.



  • Cambo next week will be interesting with Hayne playing.

    I expect a good turn out with this game.

    Titans vs Warriors tomorrow is basically sold out there is only scattered single seats available….so I’m told.
    Geez there is even a Hayne cam for fox viewers tomorrow 😮.

    It’s going to blow up in the Titans face, you can see it coming a mile away. Almost 2 mil a yr for someone who hasn’t played the game in two yrs, who before he left was prone to being a bludger. Don’t say i didn’t tell you so.
