Leeds or Huddersfield and you think Huddersfield may or may not bring more supporters!!! It's not personal Padge, honest. You just keep posting contentious stuff.
I don't know how many either team will bring. There are however other financial considerations. Leeds last week attracted about 1.000 more for the play-off game than Huddersfield did for the league game. So at first glance you would say, financially its Leeds. The problem is you don't know the in stadium spend. Do Leeds supporters not bother with the bars etc so much, do Huddersfield supporters have a better spend per head ratio. The bean counters will have a finger on what each bar takes for each visiting team, and since the visitors mostly occupy one end and they know how many are in that end they have an idea how much they pull out of their wallets.
If its Leeds are the corporate's more likely to be filled with people watching the game than with free loaders buying extra drinks in the bar.
As the gate money is split evenly for play-offs the financial benifits of 1,000 people is far less than for a league game so you want the ones who are spending in the ground.
I don't know the figures, and my proposition is only based on reasoning it out as to why one club could be more beneficial financially than the other.
Of course there could also be another big incentive financially, getting to and winning the Grand Final is a massive financial incentive, maybe the bean counters may just look at that.
