The BBL Might’ve ‘Cooked The Golden Goose’, Says Mark Bickley

Jan 24, 2020


Adelaide Strikers home crowds are down on previous seasons despite still having the highest average attendance in the league, says Mark Bickley.

Bicks told the FIVEaa sports show:

“It is interesting though -- it’s a little bit like cooking the golden goose. They’ve scheduled more games in the last couple of years. Think back to BBL 2, 3, 4 -- you were flat out getting into the Adelaide Oval.

“There was 40,000 every game. Now we’re saying 26,000 is a cracking crowd… there’s no reason why a couple of years ago that wouldn’t have been overflowing. Yet there it is -- half full.”
