how many could they get to GF series ?

Hypothetical here -

If there was unlimited seating for GF series - what do you think the crowd numbers would be ?

Adelaide's home final will sell out in no time. Capacity around ? 8,000.

Good time for NBL finals to be scheduled as no other live sports peaking and competing for media too much.

Melbourne will sell out particularly if it goes to game 3.

So if they had venues like the USA (temporary court in the middle of a playing field)I would guess -

Adelaide could easily get 15,000 and Melbourne 25,000 and if if was looking like a great game 3 schedules at the right time - they could get 35,000.

This promises to be an interesting series and I am expecting a lot of media over the next week.

Not sure but on the Fox broadcast last night, they said that 10,000 seats had been sold in Melbourne for game 1.

Can anyone confirm this? (I find that a bit hard to believe)

Yep, i'm excited.

I was going for Perth last night, only because I don't want this thing to stop plus game 3 in Adelaide would have been a cracker...damn!!

of course if it is an even series with good games - a marketing dream ! games 4 and 5 will get a lot of interest

10,000 Seats across the 2 games (5000 each)

The United games won't sell out. Cheapest tickets went from $30 to $51 (adult) .. factor that in with VJBL and AFL starting Friday nights are horrible for United.

Also, game 5 will fall on Easter weekend, alot of people will be away

Melbourne sold 10k tickets for G1 already apparently. They opened ticket purchases while the other semi series was still being played.

Why is it hard to believe that United cant get 10000? They averaged 8000+ during the regular season and had 10300 on a number of occasions. They will sellout all their games.

Yeah I don't see that United number as unrealistic at all (not sarcasm)

It is realistic. I went to every home game with the exception of the two Friday night games, due to VJBL. It is easy to see when it is legit and when it is not.

Well game 2 is already sold out.

I'd imaging they'll be expecting sellouts regardless but interestingly they chose not to fit Game3 in before AFL starts (Thu 22nd). Also Game3 in Melbourne goes up against the Crows game played in Melbourne at the same time. Certainly makes it out of the question for any Adelaide fans wanting to come across for both.
