Approx 6100 at 4 games to open the season. According to The West. Terrible

The comp must aim at 3000 per game for 12000 a round

Can it be done?

Victorians still laugh at West Aussies because of the way we bailed out the vfl and then allowed it to be called it the AFL!

I can tell you that there was probably 2000+ at centrelink stadium and from what I saw, more were wearing dockers gear than Peel's.

Simple question is no it can't. Extremely hard to get 3000 to one game, let alone all four per round.

Terrible turn out at Freo today, I tipped 1800, well it was about 1500, virtually no WP people at all, arrived in the SF member 20 mins before bounce down and was really worried, but it filled at bounce down, even so piss weak turnout, bugger all promo, regardless up against nothing, very very concerning , traditionally the opening round was a bumper crowd with it falling off as the season went on, does not augur well.

3000 is basically unattainable now on a normal fixture, i think we need to aim for 2000 , lets face it with embarrasing wafl gf crowds 2 yrs running, we need a rethink.

has to be a goal and is attainable. We all have to get 5 friend interested. Can be done.

In tough economic times rank and file people aren't going to pay $15 to enter, they should drop it to $10 and anyone under 18 is free, or offer a drink and hotdog etc with the $15, there needs to be an incentive

Not being confrontational or nasty but to get more to Freo oval maybe your club could be more welcoming to opposition supporters. IE we are not allowed anywhere near the bar to watch the game. Only behind a closed window.. Plus the grand stand is 25 meters from the ground. Nice heritage though. Not being clever
