Princess park full.
Best game of footy I've seen in a while.
Go the Blues!
Womens sport. The sleeping giant. Which ever code gets it right first will be huge.

I've been talking about it with my mates, it's free and there's nothing else on at the moment so it's not hard to imagine they'd get a great crowd, especially for the first game. It's not something that has the legs to go the distance I don't feel. Once the hype dies down over it or they start charging for tickets the crowds will die or they'll pull the curtain for the guys games.
The quality of the footy is what will dictate how long it lasts, if they can get to a decent standard of play then perhaps it'll stay lukewarm but it's very hard for women to break into a male dominated sport and have success.

The curtain is the way to go. T20 womens did it and it worked a treat. Someone mentioned the legends having to tow the line earlier. I recall one of them coming out late last year saying the men shouldn't be subsidising the women and he got panned. At least as the curtai you can justify that people are paying to see them.
A mix would be good. Taking the kids to a suburban field at a family friendly time also has its appeal.
