Well I’m led to believe Magic Weekend has been signed off for New York next year.

The response form UK fans will interesting if it’s true. No confirmation from the RFL yet.

Of course there isn’t, they’ll release it the month before.

Good luck trying to get fans to pay for Magic Weekend tickets, a trip to New York and all that comes with, Wembley Tickets, Grand Final tickets, international tickets, club season tickets. And that's just rugby league related. A much more affordable and beneficial overseas venture would be to hold it in France.

But what about the times we play in Australia loads of supporters go from all clubs so if and it’s a big if they announced it early they would get people to go from all clubs

NYC is a bit more expensive than NSW, bad idea.

Isn't the idea of having the Magic Weekend in NYC to expose the game to new fans, rather than asking UK based fans to travel?

Well, a big part of what makes the Magic Weekend successfull is the fact that fans of all clubs can mingle together in one stadium. Do you think each club would take the same amount of support over to NY that they do to Manchester/Newcastle etc?

International friendlies like Denver are probably the best for American ventures, you wouldn't therefore inconvenience a lot of clubs and supporters. The World Cup Series also would be better served over there than Magic Weekend.

Agree about linternationals being better, maybe hold a 4 nations over there.
Would also take the WCC over there. Especially the current 3 game system. Hold it in 3 cities close together.

But we all know these things are about how much money can be got out of these even'ts and not about promoting the sport.
Hull KR the pride of East Hull.

I’m all for expansion but I don’t get why they need to deviate from Newcastle because it’s always a great weekend. I’ve met some quality people over the years from other clubs and I don’t think we will get the same in New York

And why would the New York public want to watch 6 matches back to back, of a game they have never seen before? I'm all for taking rugby league to New York, but 1 game will be enough for now!

This attitude, mainly from Leigh fans, could be one of the reasons some take a disliking to Leigh.

Just so you know, Paul Rowley is highly thought of here in Toronto.
