Not really sure where to put this..
Clubs playing home games at Etihad Stadium this season will be rewarded with attendance bonuses in a new supporter incentive system introduced by the AFL.
In a move applauded by the clubs as a good will gesture, Essendon, St Kilda, the Western Bulldogs, North Melbourne and Carlton stand to reap in total six-figure bonuses this season for their efforts in lifting attendances at specified games.
The Bombers, who are expected to remain the stadium's anchor tenant under a new deal, have been offered the special incentive for their first Etihad home game against Melbourne next month.
The Bombers will also be rewarded should they reach new attendance triggers against Brisbane and Adelaide later this season. The AFL has told the clubs they will set two triggers at most games. For example the Bombers will be rewarded against Melbourne should they attract 40,000 fans to the game with a further bonus should the crowd figure reach, for example, 45,000.
