    Strangely enough, that game was the first time in ages I had seen Glory posters anywhere for them. All of the ones I saw feature Keisuke Honda. They were in most of the cafe strips and shopping areas I frequented over the last few weeks.

    I think there is some king of rivalry with Melbourne Victory I believe if that was the game.

    Hit the nail on the head.

    Also first game in 3 weeks due to FIFA international breaks (i think) so I’d imagine a lot of the Glory fans had the date in their diary - I did.

    nope, their crowds crowds have been consistent at 7200-10800 all season and they have been top of the ladder all season.
    then suddenly they get 18k.
    something must have happened to get that crowd out of the blue

    Lets hope the tickets are selling well for this game. Its hard to tell because I now realise how deceiving it is looking at the Ticketmaster site and wont use that to try and judge ticket sales again.

    With the kids come free promotion when you buy atleast 1 adult ticket it should be a huge incentive to drag whatever kids you have or even know who show a passing interest in the sport to come, kids mates from school etc. If you are thinking of coming to a gane this season then this game is it. It will be hugely dissapointing to have a sub 10k crowd again, and it will have dire consequences for the sport if we end up with another sub 8k crowd. I know im dragging my other half and youngest one to the game no matter what.. hopefully I can pursuade some more people to come between now and Friday.

    It should be a cracking game most of the AP Dragon players are Otago born and bred and there are a few kiwis strengthening the squad too so expect a good tight tussle. You wont know unless you get there and see it live. GO FORCE!

    if you are a glory fan, surely every game is in the diary?
    the question was, what made the attendance double.
    i was more interested to hear if there was a shitload of marketing involved or what.
    despite their best season ever in the A-league, crowds have stayed almost static, until this game.
    due to breaks and 3 consecutive away games, this was the first home game for 6 weeks, but i don't see how this would affect crowd figures this much.

    Havign looked at the attendances for last year, the 1st home game against Melbourne Victory was also the best attendance during that season. Is there some special emnity between the Glory and Melbourne Victory, which might bring out additional spectators?

    Otherwise, not having a game for a 6 weeks, and then a Saturday afternoon game with good weather and the only other sporting competition being a late Saturday Eagles game (is there much cross-over between soccer and AFL fans?).

    I'm a Glory member as well as a Force member. There was a metric truckload of marketing, plus Victory is a high profile team and champions last year. And who doesn't like seeing Kevin Muscat's head explode when a decision goes against his team (albeit that didn't happen this time)?

    arf. would pay good money to see that.
    would that be a no brainer?
    it was especially nice to beat them when that cheating twat berisha was playing with them as well.

    anyway, onwards and upwards for both teams i hope.
    i'll be on the JB's omnibus tonight, go the force

    Tomorrow that pRAvda will have transmogrified that into 15,000

    It will be a tad more difficult to explain away the 24-34 scoreline (at 77mins)

    Rabble were destined for three in a row. Deadset.
