Crocs launch exciting new membership, seating set up

The Townsville Crocodiles are focusing on providing a better all-round game night experience at an affordable price for the 2016/17 NBL season as the club embarks on an exciting new era.

The Crocs had an encouraging 2015/16 season where the group under coach Shawn Dennis emerged and now with his re-signing and the announcements on the roster for 2016/17 to begin in the coming weeks, the club is focusing on further improving things off the court.

Things took tremendous strides forward during 2015/16 and that was helped with crowd numbers and membership figures increasing, but the Crocodiles need the continued support of the Townsville community to be able to compete with the powerhouses of the NBL.

Focusing on game night for 2016/17, the Crocs have worked with the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre on lowering the prices of 69 per cent of adult seats from last season to the concession price. That will see lower tier and upper tier seating become the same price.

Seats at The Swamp that will be right on top of the action begin from $252 for the season so that will mean you can watch all 14 Crocs home games for 2016/17 for just $18 a match.

The seating set up will undergo a change for the upcoming season necessitating the new pricing structure, but that is with the aim of improving the game-night presentation both for the fans in attendance and for those watching live on Fox Sports.

“The new layout will aid the TV broadcast and atmosphere for the players whilst providing spectators the closest opportunity to support the team,” Crocodiles General Manager Robert Honan said.

“The club acknowledges that the new ticket pricing system has merged different price sections. The new system promotes supporters sitting closer to the action from a more affordable price.”

The Crocs have focused on ensuring that memberships and seating prices for the 2016/17 are both affordable and attractive to help the people of Townsville get behind the club’s surge to be part of NBL Finals action again.

“Affordability has been central to the new pricing structure. The new structure allows our loyal supporters affordable options to sit in the lower tier,” Honan said.

“The club is offering existing season ticket holders the opportunity to purchase up to an additional four tickets prior to the general release of tickets. This is a direct result of the club listening to the feedback of the existing season ticket holders.”

The Crocs are entering an exciting new era and Honan is looking forward to the people of Townsville being a big part of that.

“Supporters are encouraged to purchase a season ticket from $252 and to ‘Bring the Noise’ as the Crocs embark on the 2016/17 NBL season.”

Existing season ticket holders from the 2015/16 season will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase four additional seats in their action.
