Taipans total increased 2%


Very interesting that, not much incentive to put a winning team on the floor up in Cairns.

Not surprised Brisbane has increased, IMO the new venue is heaps better than Boondall was (can't compare to the Convention Centre). I literally sat on the backwall at Nissan Arena and I could see everything. Also IMO it's a lot better location, although the car parking is a bit of a nightmare.

To add on to the above, it probably helps Brisbane played better this season too.

Perhaps they close to sell out anyway? That would make it hard to increase, it would essentially come down to whether members show up or not i'd imagine?

Kings averaged just under 10,000 per game. Despite them having a winning season so far, that is really impressive

I was thinking the same thing about Cairns, but actually looking at their numbers this season there is still some fluctuation and plenty of games that got ~ 4000 people into a 5300 stadium

Luuuc that's interesting - this really is the type of season where they should be getting close to 4.8-5k if that's the capacity

Back of the envelope calcs on wildcats attendance assuming approx 40$ tickets (probably quite a low assumption) nets them $7.2m in ticket sales alone.

There are 150,000 people in the Cairns area. A 4,000 crowd is like 3% of the population. By that metric, the people of Perth really need to up their game

Perth don't have any seats left to fill. Near capacity every week.

I don't know about other clubs, but it looks to me like United include all members in the attendance figures, whether or not they turn up. There were quite a few sold-out games which did not have 10,300 people in attendance (which is the capacity), even though that’s the attendance that was recorded.

I would expect "attendance" is another way of saying ticket sales. Sure, some members may technically not attend but if they got the $$ for it then its a positive regardless.

You d expect a good crowd in Perth.

Between neck tattoos, working the mines, going to a dentist and buying a ute, there is alot of time to fill.

Good numbers, Nissan arena is a nice basketball venue but the bus system needs some work.
It's time for a second team in Perth.

I see that the Cairns Convention Centre is having a major makover starting soon. Wonder if that means a bigger venue in the future with the possibility of it holding 6000. Lets hope so.

The question we should be asking is did the owners/clubs return a profit?

Cairns - Might break even just with finals
Brisbane - Loss money
Sydney - Will break even with playoffs
Perth - Make Money
Adelaide - Nope
SEM - lost million plus
NZ - Lost a few million
MU - might break even with playoffs but at present losing money
Hawks - Loosing money hand over fist!

Um you obviously haven't been to a kings game Curtley, there is two good sports bars with in 200 meters. You can drink and eat there before and after games. The kings normally send a few players up there after every game, the bar over the summer moths is called the kings bar. Kids eat free with every adult meal.

Not certain about other states but nsw has flogged all its stadiums to private companies. Both the WEC and Qudos cost an arm and leg to hire, both Illawarra and Sydney begin behind the eight ball straight up.

Sydney - Will break even with playoffs <<<<- Would absolutely shock me if true. Spent way more on their roster than other clubs, and with luxury tax implications and additional players on the roster/practice squad all year, their spend must be through the roof.

What a load of crap. You looked at the Melbourne and Perth rosters. Give it a break and come back when you got some facts.

Stadium rental is what kills Sydney and Illawarra but there isn't anywhere else.

CCC expansion will have no effect at all on basketball seating. it's all about adding additional capacity and facilities for conventions.

Cairns is doing it very tough right now. tourism has dropped off a cliff and most other industries are being affected in some way. in this context those numbers are fantastic.

Pretty sure moving to perth arena now rac was not cheap. I remember 10k members been thrown around as the goal to make it viable. Sydney carrys on like it's the moat expensive place to live (it can be) but perths floor is higher. Pretty sure perth has the highest per game ticket costs too.

I happen to know what they were paying on a per-game basis their first year at Perth Arena, and it's nowhere near the figures thrown around on here for other venues.

Obviously prices will have gone up, and those other numbers could be unreliable, so pinch of salt and all that.

I remember 10k members been thrown around as the goal to make it viable.
10k was just their goal because it was a nice round number. It took them four years to get there and they were massively profitable in the first two years. The 10k was a PR thing, not a viability thing.

Same with Adelaide. Both had a 19% increase. A lot didn't like the move from Titanium to the Entertainment Centre, but some of the crowds they got such as the record 9,034 would not have been possible otherwise.

Did anyone notice that the Breakers attendances increased by 37%??? That's almost twice as much as the next best in Adelaide and Brisbane.
