I believe that we are planning/provisioning the 3 games for attendance around 10K per game = total 30k attendance over 3 games.

Given from memory (help anybody) League SANFL games average attendance is about 2.7K then these 3 games represent the equivalent of 11 League SANFL games approximately.

All goes well is a huge potential Financial boost to the Club.

Must look at signs next time I drive through to see what they say hmmm wonder if Club has requested Department to change --- now I am retired the Club will have to pay for the new signs & may not get it approved Hmmm.

Editted to add --- the other local signs were provided by Council so the club must approach them for change -- my only involvement with these was to act as negitiator for club with council.

This means that fans (other teams or rural) trying to attend a game just cannot find a listing for "Hisense Stadium" as it is listed in the various street directories (electronic, online or hard copy) as Richmond Oval.

Quote "I would think buying the naming rights does just that for the duration of the sponsorship" you are correct as I understand it.

Hope above helps if not ask away.
Oldfella I drive home that way after work. Yes they have changed to Hisense stadium on Brooker terrace and Kingston Avenue

10K per match would be exceptional. It's our chance to shine. Let's hope we can get our act together.

Agreed Bruce -- if we meet the challenges then they will stay in future seasons and that's great.

I heard that apart from a few training sessions needing to be relocated that the Crows have very limited impact on the West Adelaide side.

Seems a real win win situation but time will tell

I noticed that the Crows Facebook page has a promotion about their game at our home ground however the call it by its traditional name "Richmond Oval"

I have asked on the Clubs Facebook site the following "Given we have a sensational Sponsor who has paid for the ground naming rights "Hisense Stadium" will the club be taking steps to get this corrected so our wonderful sponsors are appropriately recognized."

As I previously mischievously posted "If I was the relevant Board Member I would be tearing my hair out and if I was the "new oval naming rights sponsor" I would be helping him tearing his hair out as well as realigning a few ring gears --- I am sure that the Sponsors understand a long time supporters mistake but from the Press or other professional? organizations is unacceptable".

Honestly think club is in a hard place on this basically a no win situation.

Critical we try to get the TV presenters to use the correct "Hisense Stadium" name

I've copied this post from the TFSA site. Doesn't sound good.

"West Adelaide's catering efforts for AFLW matches continues to be farcical.

Yesterday, the kiosk and BBQ were opened, but the club forgot to provide tills for the outlets, resulting in the BBQ operating cash only and the kiosk to delay trading. Thankfully the AFC have provided a number of external caterers.

I hate to say this, but I hope Hisense Stadium never hosts AFLW matches in future seasons following the poor spectator experience West Adelaide have provided fans this AFLW season."

Edited as I misread original post.

Bad error by club --- not world ending but a bad unprofessional look.

Having said this the kiosk and BBQ have been cash only for as long as I can remember --- wondering if when they need to be upgraded to card payments.

There are tills and there are card facilities, is there more to this than meets the eye, I wonder, in that a volunteer BBQ shouldn't be expected to run a CC system..........!?

This is the part I miss read that there were no tills for the outlets which is a major blunder.

Did not think there was card facilities in BBQ or Kiosk but pleased if I am wrong.

Contrary to that original post I've also been told the AFC aren't involved in the catering at all and that there weren't any major issues.

Aldo, you are very correct and I may mention this to original poster on other site LOL

Since my original post I have had a few more thought too Aldo.

Given that both the BBQ & Kiosk staff open well before the bulk of the crowd arrives and I presume identified very quickly that they did not have a till then they would have chased this up with the relevant club person.

So my question is how long did this take? I was not there but does any one know how long.

While a mistake obviously, perhaps a storm in a tea cup

Does seem like a storm in a tea cup.
But little things like this seem to happen a fair bit at our club.

Another post copied from the TFSA site provides some balance I feel.

I attended the AC V CA match and arrived just after half time
It is the first AFLW game Ive attended

My observations

First thing I noticed was that the ground was in magnificent condition

I walked around the oval twice, trying to find someone I knew To my surprise not one person
That prob meant a new era of different people attending these matches. What I did notice is the amount of young kids that attended. It was certainly unusual too hear a few young girls barracking in a vociferous manner

There were kids sections with amusements

There was a wheelchair only section

There seemed to be enough vans and food outlets from what I saw

There were people lined up at the BBQ outlet. I didnt eat , but the BBQ at Richmond Oval is perhaps the best when I attend SANFL matches

It was a great atmosphere and it was announced that 7,000+ people had attended

Post match the oval was full of boys/girls/men/women having a kick. There certainly was an abundance of young girls having a dob

From what I observed, Richmond Oval is definitely an excellent venue to stage these games

Why has it taken so long for a womens national football league ?
It would have been nice to have this comp starting about 40 years ago , when I was a young single bloke ...

Roo is responding to a quote on another radio station that it would cost a million dollars to play the 4 games for the AFL. Nothing to do with westies making Money..
