  1. When they feature in the special marquee events it’s easy to have over inflated crowd numbers – if Kangaroos were involved in ANZAC day or Dream Time at The G their numbers would be up too! It’s no surprise that the top 3 feature in those two big calendar events

  2. So port have the 5th highest home attendance even though we have not been that good for the last year and a half and people STILL use the tarp jokes?

  3. And Adelaide don’t get any so called “Blockbuster” games like Anzac Day, the game between the drug cheating bottom side and a downward sliding and has been since Mand see who wins.ick went lot. Take out the top attendance figure for each side

  4. Collingwood play at the MCG most of the time that’s why they top the list. If our stadium held the same amount of spectators, we’d be up there too. Go Eagles!❤️❤️🏉🏉

    • Ben Oconnor well I go to all our home games (Subiaco) and they have all been pretty much sold out and there is a waiting list for seated membership of around 3-4 thousand ….it would probably be more but you are on that list for many years (I know as I was on it for 6 years, plus you have to pay to be on it) which makes it hard for families. Also Collingwood make membership available at a much cheaper rate than the Eagles, in fact that is how they originally built up their club, by making it available to the average working man/woman at a very reasonable rate.

    • There are two teams in W.A and you’d be lucky to sellout a 40k seat stadium…. The fact that there are ten teams in Melbourne and the pies are in the bottom half of the ladder, then it’s a fair effort.

    • Michael C Reader that shithole stadium Subiaco is regularly sold out of public tickets it’s just the members who don’t rock up. Melbourne has 9 teams too mate, Geelong has 1 so Victoria has 10 😜

    • Hobart only holds 17,888 and we have played there twice, the Queensland sides are woeful and we have played both of them up there, the average of those 4 games would be less than 17,000

  5. West Coast fans saying if they had bigger stadium their crowds would be bigger…….so they should be, a team playing well and there’s only 2 bloody teams in the state lol
