    A call to Arms... This is serious - if you call yourself a Force fan!

    Next week is the Force vs A P Dragons at HBF park (aka NIB Stadium)

    What we need to really show our support is a huge attendance from anyone who calls themselves a fan. The team needs your support more than at any other time in this teams history.

    Last week a little over 7,600 people turned out to watch the team we all fought so hard to get back, but now the support has started to subside to dangerous levels that could almost justify cutting the side.

    Regardless of the opposition we all need to be there.

    Regardless of the terrible fixture times the game is played we all need to make sure we turn up.

    This is no laughing matter if we all want the opportunity to look back in a few years and be thankful for Andrew Forrest and Mindaroo for putting his own money up to ensure we have a future we must get to HBF park and support this team.

    Bring whoever you can, if you have to buy them a ticket, you can get General Admision family passes for $30. Most here claim to be affluent city slickers cashed up to their eyeballs so instead of smashing back 2 pints buy your mate a family pass and get him to the game. They may only take 1 extra person, or maybe 2, who cares, GET THEM THERE!

    We all may not realise but the consequences are catostrophic for this team, if we lose the Force through a lack of support then im sure most of us all will deeply regret it. Some of us will even become depressed from it, we may simply cease to function.

    I am making a call to arms for every Force fan to get their asses to the game and drag whatever friend/ mate or acquaintance you can and get them there. This is deadly serious. The Forces future is at stake and we all wanted this team, yet we are seeing crowds that resemble the NRC ones to fully fledged pro games at a world class stadium. Lets prove all the doubters wrong and get there next Friday 12th April.

    GO FORCE!!!

    Good man Spartan, this is where you need to be directed. Drum up them troops with your righteous anger not getting angry over things that cannot change.

    I'll be there.

    Pretty clear that the topic is directed at getting fans to the matches. You can't disagree that the most recent crowd was very poor.

    Maybe this is a test by Mideroo.

    Results are interesting.

    Promotion saturation - 19466 (Force v Fiji) 4 May 2018

    Minimal Promotion - 7688 Force v South China Dragons 29 March 2019

    Promotion costs money - Mideroo needs to figure out the economics of promotion cost per spectator.

    Often wonder what the size of that particular crowd would have been if the stadium was bigger.

    With a capacity of over 22,000 I would suggest the answer could be hidden in this little riddle "what is heavier, a pound of feathers or a pound of concrete"

    on a similar note, how did the glory suddenly get a crowd of 18k last week, nearly double their average crowd.
    i personally didn't hear any extra promotional stuff, but that's no surprise.
    they must have done something though.
