    personally i find it fairly cheap. I was in the US in December and January, and went to a few Lakers game, and a Clippers game. To sit 3 rows from the back for a Lakers game, i paid $120 each for myself and the missus.

    that's just my opinion though.

    In terms of brookie, fans would be mad not to at least get a 3 game membership, and save a bit. I'm talking true supporters obviously.

    Eels Introduce New Ticket Pricing System
    JAN. 23, 2015


    In 2015, the Dyldam Parramatta Eels are introducing a new fan-friendly ticketing structure for home games that will see family tickets starting at $30 and junior tickets as low $5 for selected home games.

    Under the new plan, all home games during the season have been designated as three-star, two-star and one-star fixtures, with prices specifically designed for each category of game.

    Pre-purchased tickets for one-star games start from just $10 for an adult general admission ticket with adult reserved seating starting at just $20. For families, taking 2 adults and 2 juniors to a game will set you back just $20 (GA).

    General admission tickets for two-star games start from just $20, with families paying as little as $40 to attend games such like our Easter Monday Blockbuster game against the West Tigers at ANZ stadium.

    To let you lock in your plans for the season, tickets for all scheduled home games at Pirtek Stadium will be available for purchase via Ticketmaster before the season kicks off.

    (Tickets for matches at ANZ Stadium will be available in the coming weeks, and tickets to matches from Round 21-26 will be available onces these fixtures have been scheduled by the NRL).

    And once games have been categorised, Eels Members and fans can relax knowing that the star-rating a game has been given will not be changed during the season.

    As always, there are added discounts on tickets for all Eels Members – whatever category game, and whatever ticket you purchase, Members save 10% off the purchase price.

    Of course, the most cost-effective way to see a game is to purchase a ticketed Eels Membership – a ticketed Membership includes 11 Sydney home games, plus entry to three reciprocal away games at ANZ Stadium, and the opportunity to redeem a general admission ticket to see the Eels play in Darwin!

    For Members who attend our 11 home games in Sydney, that brings your ticket price down to just $13.60 per game with an adult general admission Membership, or $4.50 per person per game with a family GA Membership (family Membership includes 2 adults and 4 juniors). Click through to sign up today!

    Tickets go on sale next week for every Eels’ home game at Pirtek Stadium up to Round 19, with Members having an exclusive pre-sale window to purchase any additional tickets they need!

    Pirtek Stadium home games:

    Member-only ticket presale:Begins 12pm Wednesday, January 28

    Tickets on sale to the general public: 12pm Thursday, January 29

    Tickets to the Eels’ 2015 home games at ANZ Stadium will be available in the coming weeks.

    Just imagine for a family, 4 tickets (average size family), travel to and from the game (maybe parking), then the ridiculous prices for food and beverage and its no wonder the average family man just gets Foxtel instead.

    When my wife and I go to see the Eagles at Suncorp its about $45 each (there goes $90) for the budget tickets (free transport on the train and as we live only 2 stops from Suncorp that's easy).

    Its always a Friday night, so we go to the Caxton beforehand ( another $60 gone), then get a budget feed (and there's some good healthy options at Suncorp these days), so say another $30, and I like a few beers at the game ($9 each for mid strength), and Rosemary will have a couple of wines (also $9 for a little plastic cup of cask wine) so say another $60, and if we win its back to the Caxton for a couple of celebratory drinks (so say another $40) before going home.

    Almost THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS for a night out......now I admit, we could just arrive, take our seat after having an early dinner at home, and walk straight out at the end and its cost $90 BUT if you are looking at that in purely an entertainment sense that's a bloody expensive night out.

    Here's some other things I could do with $300 in Brisbane.

    *20 Tickets to the movies (Cinema just up the road so we can walk there), I don't eat popcorn so we simply arrive, take our seat, watch and go home.

    *2 x Yearly passes (for Queenslanders) to Movie World, Sea World, Wet & Wild.

    *6 Tickets to shows at QPAC (roughly $49 each)...so we'd get to go 3 times.

    *3-4 nights out at one of our local cheap eateries (all BYO), average cost is about $35 pp and bring your own wine allow $20.

    Sorry a bit long winded BUT you get the idea.

    I can afford it (rolling in dough....cough cough LOL), but your average family can't......I think every code, AFL, Union and A League have the same issues.

    AND, as soon as there's any sign of rain why would you bother.

    Nice warm comfortable couch and big screen TV, beers at $2 each, no hassles getting to and from.

    BUT you do miss out on the atmosphere, and I reckon its worth paying they money at times for that.

    To be 100% fair, you can become a member and get much cheaper seats than that, they are only stinging us because we are away supporters.

    You could also squirrel away the $300 because you will probably need it for the outrageous insurance premium increases for Qlders, due to ongoing floods, hail, cyclones etc

    I just saw on the new that the MCG had significantly dropped the prices on its food, some examples from memory.

    Chips from $5.60 to $4.00
    Water from $5.00 to $3.00
    Hot Dogs from $6.50 to $4.00

    Wonder if the other stadiums will take note?

    Yep, saw that too.

    Be interesting to see if they start to tighten up what you can and can't bring in, there has be a trade off somewhere.
    We get stories of overzealous security at Brookie with what isn't allowed as opposed to what the T & C's are on the ticket.
    Call me a nark but I'm sure there'll be more fine print.

    Just as an aside, wasn't it $25 for a GA ticket at Brookie last year?

    Yep 25 last year. I did a survey that asked would I be prepared to have tiered ticketing, cheaper tix for hack clubs or Monday nights, and higher prices for big clashes. I said yes. Silly me I figured they'd leave it at 25 for big games, cheaper for games v Canberra etc. of course now the **** games will be 25 and good games 35.

    As a member I'm not really affected however.

    Apart from supporting the club, ticket prices helps making renewing for membership a no brainer. Much cheaper to be a member. Three kids are members as well. Couldn't justify the money if i had to take my family

    I paid €80 to sit 3 rows back at Amsterdam ArenA for an Ajax champions league game, but that was worth it
