SUNS and Pies fans to fill Metricon for Saturday clash

SUNS fans are showing their support for the in-form AFL side, with Saturday’s clash against Collingwood close to standing room only.

Over the past month Metricon Stadium has enjoyed large crowds for the Gold Coast home games and this weekend’s hit-out against the popular Melbourne side has only single reserved seats, standing room tickets and The Lounge corporate area remaining.

The SUNS’ website reports, the club released a limited number of standing room tickets yesterday.


GC SUNS GM – Marketing, Community and Fan Development, Kelly Ryan, said fans should get in quickly to snap up what’s left.

“Ticket sales spiked after our extraordinary win against Geelong last time we played at home, and as a result reserved seat tickets are close to being exhausted,” Ryan said.

Gold Coast SUNS CEO, Travis Auld, said the game against the Pies will hold massive interest across the country with a large number of Collingwood fans heading from interstate for the clash.

“The Magpies always have a huge travelling contingent following them when they play on the Gold Coast, and at this stage we are expecting between four and five thousand fans to come from interstate for the game,” Auld said.

“I think it shows how much our on-field performance has improved this season that we can be talking about breaking a crowd record that has stood since our first season in the AFL.”

GC SUNS members are urged not to leave their seat empty on Saturday and come out to Metricon Stadium and support the team in what will be a game for the record books.
