Attendance - a poll

Reading the 'Attendance' thread I was surprised at how many planned to attend few ,or no, games this season. So, I thought it would be interesting to see where the Shedweb community nets out.

I was a season ticket holder from the time I stopped playing, up until I moved to Spain.
I have no plans to visit plague island in the foreseeable future as it would be an unnecessary health risk, so, unfortunately I will not be attending any matches this season.
Prior to the pandemic, I would normally come over for a couple of matches each season.

Too far away to be a season ticket holder (I appreciate that others travel an awful lot further).
Went to the Tigers and Sharks games (largely because I'd missed the matchday vibe over the last 18 months or so) and frankly wasn't bowled over by the experience/prices.
Suspect I'll do one more home game this season - but I think the club needs to have a think about its pricing policy, general communications and customer service.
I'm going through an 'I love the club, but the club doesn't really love me' phase at the moment. 'Squad of thousands' feels a bit one-sided.

STH but until Covid risks IMO are less prevalent will stay away. Understand the club is commercially driven BUT really can't abide seeing a 1/3rd empty stadium and think there must be a solution of free/very cheap tickets to local schools/clubs for youngsters until numbers pick up. What are PRC and European games going to look like ?? Surely the at-ground sales bring in bottom-line revenue ??
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

If you stay away, guess what - you don’t get a full stadium !
If you stay away, guess what - the Club doesn’t generate the revenue needed to see the improvements you want !

There are all sorts of reasons why people can’t attend - distance, family, playing, health etc - all justifiable reasons.

But you don’t attend “just because” you aren’t helping Gloucester Rugby recover and or improve.

The good lady wife and I live in deepest, darkest North Yorkshire and neither of us is a keen driver. When I had family in The Forest we would come down a couple of times in the season and make a weekend of it and relish a match. However, since I have been an orphan it seems too far and for that reason alone we rarely attend even though we love the experience.

I reckon majority of Serial Moaners never go to Kingsholm anyway.

Like Chris in Spain, we've no immediate plans to leave Europe for Plague Island at the moment either ...

A more cautious approach to dealing with the pandemic is being taken here in Ireland, thankfully.

Maybe if the health situation in the UK improves in the New Year we may do so, and if that happens I will try to ensure that our visit coincides with a home match.

Not a season ticket holder but generally get to a handful of games each season. Hoping to make it a few more this year.

Friday's aren't good for me, but since lockdown other things including local rugby seem to fill the void on a Saturday. Been to Northampton and will get down to London this weekend which just goes to show if the product is right and priced sensibly....
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....
