    Yes, by the sounds of it, they never really thought this idea through. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    Thanks for the quick response Larissa - you're doing a fantastic job :)

    I still think the NRL should have made this clear before tickets went on sale as some parents have probably already purchased family tickets or children tickets in one of the supporter bays.
    My guess is the NRL have finally realised that the stadium will be half empty on Saturday night - thus allowing juniors passes and next Gen members in for free to boost the numbers.

    Agree they are trying to fill a vacant area of the ground. Bays 1 to 6 is all the Southern End of the ground. Anyway can’t knock the NRL trying something (you will get some people who had no intention going to the game now coming to the game).

    Manly should promote this in the Manly Daily/Manly’s website/facebook page or others by posting on their face book.

    “Manly Next Generation or NRL Junior Pass - free entry to SFS Semi Final this Saturday – Manly v’s Cowboys 8.30pm

    Junior supporters presenting either an 'NRL Junior Pass' or a 'Manly Next Generation' membership card will be granted free at the Sydney Football Stadium with access via Gate i (the southern end of the ground) and seating in Bays 1-6 (which is a general admission seating area - southern terraces).

    Adults general admission is only $20 to purchase at the ground or at ticketek in advance.”

    You'd be spot on there....personally I think it's a great initiative filling seats that would have been empty anyway with "some" paying.

    As far as people who had already bought tickets I see the Cat 1 Family passes were like $140, and the adult seat component of that was $110 so it wasn't a whole lot for a family to take their kids along as extras anyway (if they wanted the better seats).

    But let's say Mum and Dad and 2 next gen members go and pay $40 (even sitting behind the goal posts) that's a bargain night of entertainment....although with it starting at 8.30pm it's doubtful a whole lot of really young ones will be there anyway.

    Great move by the club. It's gotta be 25k plus on Saturday.

    I think perhaps the NRL should be offering discounted tickets for parents to sit with their kids in that area. Good idea in principle but poorly thought out.

    Thank you for following this up Larissa

    The general admission (cat 3) tickets are only $20 Adults & $15 concession for the semi’s and cheaper than regular general admission prices at Brookie, so price should not be an issue if taking it up the free kids tickets as well.
