Now, to be fair, there were probably about 150 people in the club level and luxury boxes behind me, as well as another 30 or so milling around the concourses. But I think this image shows why sporting events always use paid attendance rather than gate attendance.
For what it’s worth, the home Diamond Jaxx got crushed, 7-1.
