that is the beauty of suburban grounds I guess. You can have a small crowd in them and still get a great atmosphere. Large grounds like ANZ wit a small crowd not only look empty but sound it too. Perhaps a computer generated crowd for tv might fix the visual effects and it will be a few years before we get a new ANZ or SFS.I voted for the new ANZ Stadium.
I have never been to a game there as I am a Kiwi but I understand the lack of atmosphere at smaller games. However, it's where we've been for a number of years now and it just wouldn't feel right to move imo.
Hopefully the new stadium will be built in such a way that spectators are closer to the action and the atmosphere has more potential to be better. I also like the changes ANZ has made for this season with their prices, this along with our (hopeful) return to forum should mean more fans flock to home games and it is more filled up like previous years.
