Crows fans are in for a treat this weekend when the Crows take on Collingwood at Etihad Stadium.
The Crows will get a rare chance to celebrate Black Friday this weekend as they get a chance to enjoy their first home game of the season, as they welcome the struggling Brisbane Lions at Etampic Oval.
On Saturday, the CWS will be back on the road, and in the middle of a busy week.
The Crows are also expected to have a big game on Saturday night against Richmond.
Crows fans can catch up on all the latest news and updates on the CFL via the CBA website.
Here are some of the things to know about the CFA’s annual ‘Black Thursday’ game, as reported by the CAA on Thursday night:What is Black Thursday?
‘Black Wednesday’ is a special day on which the AFL offers free tickets to a limited number of players, and it’s traditionally held on Black Friday.
The AFL’s decision to extend the date to the first week of October was taken after discussions with clubs across the league, and AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan said on Thursday that the AFL will continue to support the game for years to come.
But how will Black Thursday compare to other Black Friday events?
There are two main ways to enjoy Black Thursday: a ‘buy-in’ or ‘buy it now’ scheme.
The first is a buy-in, whereby the AFL and clubs will be able to purchase a ticket to a particular match through a single-use code and pay for it with a single ticket purchase.’
Buy-in’, in this context, means that the player or team can pay for a ticket from the ticket’s point of purchase, rather than paying for a specific match ticket.
In this scheme, the AFL only gets a cut of ticket sales, and the ticket does not cost any money to buy.
The second is a ‘Buy-It-Now’ scheme, where the AFL sells tickets for a specified price via the ‘Buy It Now’ system.
The league has an ‘A’ rating for the ‘buy It Now’-type scheme, with a ‘C’ rating if it fails to sell tickets quickly enough to meet the required number of tickets.
The new ‘Black Monday’ rules mean that ticket prices will increase to cover the cost of the increased match ticket prices.’
Black Thursday is not a competition, it’s a day to celebrate, and we will celebrate with a lot of passion this weekend.CFA chief executive Greg Inglis said that the new rules mean the AFL has the opportunity to create an experience for fans that is unlike anything they have seen before.
He said: ”Black Thursday will be the first time that the CCL has expanded into a national sporting event.
The competition will be a unique, unique occasion, as we are also looking to develop our business to meet this new demand.”
This is the first opportunity that the competition has ever had to be in a way that the games can’t be played on the weekend, which will give a much bigger impact on the fans, the game and the league.”
We are proud to have been part of this game, and our fans will be even more so, as this will be our first time in Australia to hold a national game.”
It will be exciting to see what we can do for the CBL and for fans around the world who are looking for a unique way to celebrate their AFL season.”
