PostSubject: Has there ever been a better time?   Sat Apr 16, 2011 9:41 pm

We are TOP OF THE LEAGUE, we are playing some great rugby and we have every chance of winning some silverware this season.

Yet despite this our crowds are disappointing compared with many other super league clubs. We must tell everyone and anyone what a great club we are and what they are missing. Although so should the marketing arm of the club. If we are ever going to get the attendances our players deserve then NOW is the time. The club and the fans need to push this club into the limelight and get great crowds for the next few home games. We should be pushing 10k+ the other top teams seem to find this easy so we should be able to with a bit of work.

advertise... give free tickets out to the wendy ball season ticket holders...proof would be needed at gate for this to work so fans didnt just give them to the usual giants fans and thus lose the club money...do this and more whilst we are going great

Probably just returned to where they started out now there is a sniff of some possible silverware, if Weeds and Dulls keep playing as bad as they are we may need to build a new stand Smile

you say our crowds are bad.. only 2 games reached 10,000 this weekend and one of them was 10.002 lol
the whole sport is badly watched for what it is, i remember before super league the ashes tours at wembley, old trafford and elland road and all 3 games had massive crowds. nowadays we carnt sell out the galpharm or jjb for an intl

I don't mean bad, compared to a our recent past they are good, but despite our improvement on the pitch the crowds seem to have stagnated. We need to be shouting from the roof tops encouraging people to come down to watch us, both the fans and the club. I do find though that as soon as people ask me how much it costs to watch us they become much more frosty about the idea.

if you could guarantee 20,000 every week you coud charge say a tenner, as we only get 7-9000 then like most clubs we have to charge a larger amount

But at the moment you can get cheap tickets through mates who are season ticket holders for Town and Fartown or through local teams or the university and probably other ways. This basically means those who want to put the effort in can get tickets at a discount and of course those who put the effort in are probably already fans but decided not to get a season ticket because the knew they would miss games and can get discounted tickets anyway. This means any potential newbies who just fancy walking up are facing a very expensive day.

Out of interest does anyone know how many HOME fans pay FULL walk up price?
