2113 from Salford tonight in the away end.

Just over 7k Wigan fans
Decent effort

What about giving season ticket holders a voucher that gives them free entry to one playoff game? Tough for fans to pay out for match tickets 3/4 weeks consecutively.

If on average each adult paid £10 less and each child £5 less then we would possibly have brought in around 80/90k less

We would need to have had nearly 18/19,000 on at those prices just to be level with what we got tonight!

Yeah, great idea! :IDEA:

TF and the wire wrote:Firstly, I was one of the 5k last night. Thursday nights are horrible for attendances, no kids due to school the next day, match on Sky etc, and games where season ticket holders have to pay for are usually poorly attended. This is the first year where we have had to pay for play off games.
But the main factor I feel is general apathy with the game, not just at our place where the rugby has been very poor for the last half of the season, but across the league. Just watching the televised games isn't as entertaining as it used to be.
Out of interest, what are they charging at your place for the game tonight. Last night, Wire were giving £5 off for season ticket holders. So for us in the south stand it was £17 for adults, £11 concessions. But non-season tickets holders aren't going to pay £22 for that. Seating prices will be even higher.

Horrible is correct mate, Cas sold 751 tickets which is magnificent the way we have been treated
We have had 3 home games switched to thursday nights this season and 6 away games. Its ridiculous to expect fans to keep coming over the pennines for these games.

So we would be around 200k down on receipts tonight.
Hows that going to work?
How does that make things better?
Hiw does that incentivise people to spend money on tickets further down the line when you've basically give them something for free and then ask them to pay £20/25 week after or 2 weeks later.

Here's a novel idea, let's get more people in paying the same amount of money.

I thought there were more than 9k on tonight. It looked like Salford had brought 2k.

Yes this always happens at play-off time. Clubs don't report the actual ticket sales as some of the cash goes to the RFL/SL. Another broken system. I reckon at least 10,500 there tonight.

Completely get your point, but at the same time - how about running tonight as a lost lead? It was a poor standard, but a good game.

It's not hard to imagine that in two weeks we might see a repeat of the match. If, and it's a big if, there's any neutrals left out there then tonight might have lured them in and we could have milked it in 2 weeks.
