Regarding the VFC supporters' section, I wonder if Valour might narrow their available sections by one at each end and move the supporter's section to 101. They've had a few "sellouts" of their regular allotment but not often enough that it makes sense to isolate the Trench so far into the corner.
I would have no problem buying a season ticket to EFC. EFC season tickets are dirt cheap and INCLUDE a jersey. Right now a 5 game pack for $80 AND a free jersey, (which retails for $110) ! The drinks at Clarke are half the price and twice the quality over IG Field (Newcastle for $6 !). And the concessions are also half the price and twice the quality.
VFC are playing on a CFL field and the supporters section starts at the back corner of an end zone. Much further than EFC fans located anywhere at Clarke. Generally speaking, you are much closer to the field at Clarke than anywhere at IGF.
Clarke's concessions may not be huge, but when you are averaging 3000, it is absolutely fine. I had a quality dog and Newcastle in my hand in 2 minutes. IGF doesn't sell quality like Newcastle, only crap beer for twice the price.
I would say EFC fans are getting far better value for their money than Valour fans. The game day experience at Clarke was absolutely fine. It has to be a lack of marketing, because at the prices EFC charge, they are basically giving tickets away.
