Cats home capacity announced

By Luke Voogt

Extra tickets will go on sale for the Cats’ pre-season match against the Bombers tomorrow night, following a state government approval.

The AFL this morning welcomed state government’s endorsement of a 50 per cent capacity at GMHBA Stadium.

This means 18,546 Geelong Cats fans will be able to watch their side compete in each home game beginning tomorrow night.

The new capacity limit will commence at the Community Series pre-season match between Geelong and Essendon tomorrow night.

The match had been sold out, but with an increased capacity limit new tickets will be released today at 12pm via Ticketmaster.

There will be no sales at the venue on game night.

Due to the increased capacity fans will occupy seats directly behind and in front of each other at the match.

Gates open at 6pm and fans must enter by the gate on their ticket, the AFL has advised.

The 2021 Community Series began last night at Marvel Stadium as St Kilda defeated Carlton in front of 10,228 fans.
