Go Lightning

I really expected more 'hype' about the fantastic effort Chris Lucas and this team have done.
There seems to be much more interest in which Men’s teams will actually make the finals and who will get the ROY
Hopefully we will see some promotion of the 2nd GF match soon and get more than 1000 people turning up to support

write up in todays advertiser - should get some more momentum as it gets closer.

I'll be there - hopefully Lightning marketing gets out there to clubs and radio stations / FB pages / Instagram / has ticket offers / family packages / competitions for tickets / some give aways via radio / tv etc.

I reckon 2,500 on Wednesday

With all their financial problems how could they capitalise on making the GF. They should be non stop talking to TV and radio stations, getting out and about in the mall etc. Even getting clubs on board and giving free tickets for juniors and packing the place out.

Your issue is the wider general public do not give a shit about Women's Basketball and the WNBL. It’s why the league will more than likely fold in the off-season.

WNBL made ABC breakfast tv news.

Perhaps a Lightning Management could host sponsor prospects as a sweetener to try to get them over the line for next season.

Tickets for Juniors. How about 2 free kids with 1 paying adult, or flip it and 1 free parent with each paying child ticket?

Rachael Sporn was hosting potential sponsors before their home semi-final.

They have also offered free entry to games at times and have still had abysmal crowds.

Actually the programming of games has a significant influence on the number people attending. The double headers were always well support and historically these do draw greater crowds, I am old enough to remember the 80's-early 00s when most games were played on the same day. Individual Thursday/Friday night games draw considerably less crowds even includes NBL games, as the majority of juniors either will not go due to late finish time or are playing on the same night.

Could the Lightning play home games at suburban stadia, timing it for after that club's junior practices? Share the games around too. It used to happen, when Adelaide had 3 WNBL teams.

Suburban Stadia would be lucky to hold 300 - 400 people. The lightning have no money. Playing at Wayville etc isn't going to make them any money.

I'd rather sell 300-400 tickets for cash at a smaller, cheaper venue than no tickets at a more expensive venue. Something needs to be done though.

Country venues?

Lightning played a couple of seasons at Wayville about 10+ years ago. I like Titanium as there can be double headers - but stand alone games if they wanted to use another smaller venues no probs - I think the portable grand stand was the biggest cost offset. Then there is TV power requirements - don't know much about that but I'd imagine a decent power plug would be needed and food + drink.

"Playing at Wayville etc isn't going to make them any money."
Im pretty sure that when they were playing there they were making a profit.
Lower running costs, and the same amount of people into the stadium as the Arena.
Even better, there was atmosphere, not echos!!!!

Lightning have publicly given a figure of $500k is required. Playing half a dozen home games at Wayville is not going to generate that coin.

I think I can see one possible reason why they aren't attracting sponsors...

The Adelaide Lightning have never made a profit in their entire existence.

First is was BASA that paid the bill, then Vince and every owner since has lost money.
