In Topic: So what is a good crowd?

15 February 2015 - 05:52 AM

The "hey day" was 1946 to around 1960.I think the record year was 1947 or 8 with an all game average of over 12,000 and 6million in total through the turnstiles. Top clubs in SL back to levels of the early 60s.The big changes of the SL era have been the big drop off in lower level gates and the collapse in Cup gates (which were usually bigger than regular league gates)

Cyclical with the general health of the game and how well we doing.there was a general increase in crowds in the late 80s n early 90s n together with a strong GB side rubbed off on the crowds v Aus.
From the mid 60s till the mid70s even periods of stong GB teams couldn't offset the secular decline in gates- lots of 10k n smaller gates v Aus
