RG, there is a discount for season ticket holders. We also get priority to renew before the public buy their tickets.
Obviously arent thinking of the fans.
Achtung Baby - pffft! Aren't thinking of the fans? The guys losing money on a team for years, trying to put together a winning formula and keeping the brand going for the rest of us to follow whether we pay to spectate or watch on TV or follow online?
I've posted before about how the finals are one chance the battling (well, many of them) NBL clubs get to try and improve their financial position. The NBL clips $5 from each finals ticket sold and I'd guess Proticket are taking more than usual too.
It's expensive and it's certainly a bit different to the season ticket experience of buying once and then just showing up with your membership cards, but this is the time we suffered through the lean years for and we all want to secure the financial position of our clubs.
We have one home grand final. Hundreds of people stayed away from the semis either saving their money or biding their time. Now's the chance to be part of the amazing atmosphere.
For me, both of the home semis I've paid for this season have been exceptionally entertaining. Easily worth the expense.
