Cue Gardens is currently up for sale

Cue Gardens, Stadium Mills, Station Road, Bradford, BD6 1BJ
http://www.rightmove.co.uk/commercial-p ... 02336.html

Now, if i was running the club, I'd look at buying the place, I'm sure the initial outlay could be made back over a season
To be the man.... I forget how the rest of that goes

One mill price tag ,742000 turnover. How do you work that out.

Their figures suggest it would take many years to get a return...

Don't forget the 15k crowds are long gone

The club already owns a much bigger facility in Southbank and with unlimited (by pub standards) parking. If the owner(s) have seven digit sums available I could easily think of better ways of spending it. spending their time running a seven day a week sideline wouldn't be best use of time either, imo.

I wonder if the drop in crowds has contributed towards this?

It may have done to a very small extent, I suppose, though the hours of twelve to six on 15 or so Sunday afternoons are only a very small part of their business hours to be fair, and the pub would only hold a couple of hundred or so, at most, so I'd think low matchday crowds would only be a minor part of their problems. It's pretty hard to imagine a business rated at £1m would be so dependent on our crowds.

We only play once a fortnight for part of the year so no. No doubt Sundays were a better day when Bulls were playing but only for a couple of hours, then everybody went to the game.
