Ticket Prices



  • I attended the game at Leichhardt and had tickets bought for me we decided to get seated tickets to which i didnt know the price, our tickets were on the grandstand terrace inbetween the 10m and tryline…they cost $50 each…no wonder crowds are down at these prices ridiculous

    Agree - I always stand on the grandstand concourse between the 30-40 metre lines. Have a great view, no big heads in front of you, sure you have to stand but at half the cost.

    I tried to get those tickets all sold out so I did not go I only go to the games with friends when we can get seating so next time I will buy early so the 8 of us can go

    For walk up tickets at Suncorp Stadium for Broncos games they charge $97 for halfway $68 for 20m lines and $47 for goal-line, behind the posts …the most expensive I have been…

    Sydney Club prices for a reserved seat between $50 and $60 is pretty stock standard…

    It shows the value of becoming a season ticket holder…I think our 12 game GA entry worked out at about $12.50 per game…

    Also if you are planning to go to a game or 2 check out Flexi Memberships of 1, 2 or 3 games most Clubs offer…



  • The difference is Sydney doesn’t have the right to charge exorbitant prices, because we can’t fill our stadiums, Brisbane does. There’s no demand and yet they think they can charge ridiculous ticket prices, not to mention the price of food and drinks when you’re there (even at suburban grounds).

    There just isn’t enough value in making the effort to go… TV coverage is too good, and when the atmosphere and lack of “event” at NRL games is all it competes with then the lounge chair wins every time lol. I hope they find a solution fast.

    All these seats along either touchline from dead ball line - halfway - dead ball line were once all GA…first in best dressed, that was until we went to ANZ (Telstra )

    If you get in early enough you can choose where you sit, we were between 30m - 40m hill side and Row A on the fence, there were two spare seats beside us…paid the same as your tix

    Try buying a premium seating ticket to any American sporting event and you will change your view… I attended a Basketball game in San Francisco in March tickets cost $us330 each

    Agree Sco77y, it is a game started by blue collar Rugby players and was successful based on its working class traits, NRL and clubs have gotten greedy if you charge $35 grandstand $25 Terrace and $15 general admiss you’d get bigger crowds

    Why would i change my view ? This isnt America with 10 x our population. Comparing US sports to us is ridiculous, for starters the demand for Golden State Warriors games is massive you have the bay area with a huge population wanting to go to a 20k seat arena, there were 10k at the game at Leichhardt not much demand there.

    The nrl really need to rethink ticketing. You can charge a premium when it is an event and people want to go but they aren’t at that stage. Reduce prices and get people into that habit of going and you can start to charge more.

    The game is also affected by the fact it is easy to watch and follow on TV. Tight camera angles and you can see everything going on.

    Clubs set ticket prices for regular season games…not the NRL…

    NRL set prices for Origin and Final series games…

    There was an offer for $15 tickets to any game at Allianz this weekend…still Crowds were very poor…you can lead a pony to water but the Clubs that played this weekend their supporters couldn’t be stuffed to get off their bums…

    In 2010 our Epic Semi against the Rorters had 30K in attendance…no cheapies that day…

    So the clubs have absolute discretion over ticket prices for regular season games? With that being the case it makes you wonder why say for a WT home game against Parramatta at ANZ Stadium our club wouldn’t offer $5 GA tickets and perhaps get a crowd of 40000 or thereabouts if the weather was favourable? Probably a bad example using one of our larger-drawing rivals like Parra or Dragons, Souths etc.
    Do clubs get any percentage of food/drink sales at ANZ or Allianz do you know? What about from games at their suburban home grounds?

    Your last paragraph hit the nail on the head. AFL kills NRL when it comes to crowds because of the simple fact that it is a much easier game to watch live because the ball is in full view for the most part, most times attending NRL live you sit there thinking “sheesh I should’ve just saved my money and watched it on telly”, especially at grounds like ANZ where you are lightyears away from the action and spend the whole match watching the big screen to see what the hell is going on.

    Yep and that’s why NRL always beats AFL in TV ratings. One game is better live the other is better on TV. In saying that I prefer to watch the game live go to most games that tigers play. I can see why people like to watch on TV especially if they don’t have a deep understanding of the game.

    The other way of thinking is also correct. Even if the tickets were 25 bucks they would only get an extra 5000 to show up.

    2515000= 375,000
    50
    10000= 500,000

    Add to that the extra expense per extra person (security, waitstaff, extra trains etc) you can see the reason the price it like they do. If they thought they could sell the place out at 25 dollars a ticket they would but when they trial the cheaper tickets at sporadic times it just doesn’t make a big enough difference.
