I think there will be 8,800 at Saints on Thursday. I know a few people who would go but because of work commitments and it being a Thursday night they have to give it a miss. 
the other gates

(Cas v Salford 7,400) (HKR v Wigan 7,900)
(Leeds v Wire 12,300)  (Toulouse v Huddersfield 4,500) (Wakey v Hull 5,300). 

 

 

May be a bit higher at Saints as Home Bargains are giving away a lot of East Stand tickets to staff as part of their sponsorship deal.

I'd hope for a 10,000+ crowd.

These are pretty conservative estimates for the first games of the season. Historically these are high crowds for clubs as there is a lot of optimism about (before Hull fans start tearing their season passes up).

Saints v Catalans 11,500, Cas v Salford 9,000, Hull KR v Wigan 8700, Leeds v Wire 13,800, Toulouse v Huddersfield 5,700, Wakefield v Hull 6,500

Saints is a GF rematch plus a strong promotion from the club. Definitely a solid five figure crowd

Saints v Catalans 11,500

Fingers crossed but I'd be pleasantly surprised if it's that high. The last Thursday night game vs Catalans got 9100 and season ticket numbers are a little down on pre-covid restrictions. With the extra 'event' stuff going on and, like you say, it's the first game of the season I reckon 10-11k would be pretty reasonable. Less than 9k would be very disappointing and quite worrying tbh.

Widnes had some tough years . First normal season since relegation and if they can stay competitive could be on road to recovery.  1500 for York is respectable but maybe a touch disappointing.  

Longer playoff hunt is open should mean longer interest is maintained.  

Not so long ago we were only getting 500 attending .

Do you know how much down on pre-covid sales?  Sounds odd but I wonder if Saints winning it comfortably for the last three years has switched some people off a bit.

Bit late to this, but Bulls vs Sheffield was 3547

Those who skipped it didn't miss much

17160 across the 7 championship clubs, slightly higher than the opening week. Not bad to average not far off 2500 after each club has had one home game, only Newcastle below the 1000 mark.

Yeah 638 must have been disappointing for Newcastle, especially with Newcastle Utd not playing last weekend and the Union team being away. Not sure how they can hope to sustain a full time team with attendances like that, hopefully they’ll pick up.

Not sure. McManus mentioned during the week that season tickets were slightly down but didn't say by how much. Corporates are back to pre-covid restrictions though so hopefully it's just a case of a few still being unsure about the situation and half-season tickets do well later in the year.

Fair point. Also fans buying season tickets for 2 years and not being full value for money - mostly due to Covid of course.

That would be excellent Chris, hopefully the bars will make a bit of cash.

True, I do know a few who have had to think a lot harder about renewing this year than they would normally. Seeing a number of clubs making a push on the off-field side of things is a positive sign that they've recognising they're going to need to work a bit harder to get everyone back - I just hope they stick with it and they might find they attract a few new faces long-term too.

It’d be great to see those gates at the matches, i was thinking a Thursday night could put a few spectators off. But there is nothing better than being at the ground watching live RL.

Batley had more fans there I’d say too 

a lot of batley fans went as we’ve had a decent start again

Toulouse Union’s game is on Sunday evening, hopefully it won’t impact on Olympique’s crowd too much, I think 4k would be considered a success. 

I think after that after their last attendance was about 9000, to get less than half of that for their first ever SL game would be a huge disappointment, don't you? I expect much higher than 4k

I don’t no, that was a final, if you look at their championship regular season attendances going back years a 4K crowd would be more than doubling them so a good step forward.

Yeah I praise Newcastle and pre pandemic were growing but thats a shame.  If they can be competitive and in playoff hunt hopefully more pop along.   

Got 12 more chances, inc Sat 3pm kick off on 19th Fev. Would hope they can average over 1000 again this season.

I think Castleford will sell out. Even though there’s a ticket offer on, to sell out against (no disrespect) Salford on is impressive. 9000 tickets sold already and the capacity for the game is 10000, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a few walk ups disappointed.
 

York vs Dewsbury - I was disappointed with the crowd of 1562, on the positive side it’s a 15% increase on our last crowd against Dewsbury which was played in the middle of summer compared to last Sunday’s game in the freezing cold.
 

With York I don’t want to keep saying ‘only 5 years ago we were getting 500 a match.’ I don’t think there’s any one major thing that’s the reason, just lots of little things which all individually knock a few off the attendance and when added together have an impact - things like stadium location, ease of parking, ticket situation, style of play, success. To a York fan those things don’t matter but it’s no longer the committed York fan we are trying to attract, it’s the floating fans, newbies and people who used to watch the club.

Cas also refer to the event experience. Good stuff, would appear to be a bit of recognition that an effort is required, which is exactly what I was hoping after a bit of a stuttering season last year.

Leeds don't mention anything in their Fan Info pags about anything other than logistics.

Yes it's great to see the effort:

COME AND CHECKOUT OUR NEW FAN ZONE!

Heading up our brand new matchday experience, the Club can reveal we have created an exciting new Fan Zone behind the Main Stand which will feature:

The ‘Molson Coors Stage’ where entertainment will perform both before and after the game

A new resident DJ will get fans ready for the game and host a post-match disco and karaoke

The ‘Doom Bar Real Ale Bar’ – our real ale bar has been doubled in size in the off-season and will feature a number of guest beers

A brand-new gin, wine, and prosecco bar

Plus, new street food vendors as part of a ‘Street Kitchen’ alongside other exciting food options!

Superb (other than Coors and Doombar, as it’s the TRL forum I feel obliged to say something negative about an otherwise excellent initiative).

Looking at the Broncos ticket site only looks like 500 or so tickets sold right now, so does not look like a lot of the fans who came for Widnes game are coming back, but lets hope they can double that in next 3-4 days.

Still have home fans paying more than away fans in the same section which is madness
