GWS could be the first club to welcome back fans to their home ground since March, with the club aiming to host 350 guests for next week’s game against North Melbourne.
The Royal Agricultural Society (RAS), operators of GIANTS Stadium, are hoping for permission to have fans flock into in-venue hospitality venues following the NSW governments announcement on Monday allowing 50 people in restaurants.
Giants CEO Dave Matthews revealed that while only a small margin of guests would attend, the club is working towards opening the gates to their corporate venues for home games.
“We are doing some work at the moment which suggests that as early as round two we might be able to make some corporate hospitality offerings,” Matthews told The Daily Telegraph.
“We’re in discussions with the AFL about that at the moment. The hospitality arrangements in NSW obviously are different to Victoria. What’s opened up a little bit here gives us an opportunity at Giants Stadium with the appropriate measures in place … so we’re just ¬ exploring that at the moment.
“If you can fit in (up to 350 people) who are essentially doing what you do in a restaurant, which is dining at an appropriate distance and following the relevant protocols, we’re very keen to explore that at the moment.”
