Congratulations to them and good for the town of Huddersfield as well.

“But part of our DNA, the Huddersfield Town DNA, is to try it. To have passion, desire, spirit ... how big you are doesn’t count for everything.”

A bit different to the Giants DNA!

Serious question.

Football clubs have a habit once they are in the top flight to get a bit snooty about sharing.

If Town were to give you 10% of that 200 million ie 20 million to fix up then to bugger off back to Fartown (or similar), would you?

A nice redevelopment for say a 12k - 14k stadium. All yours.

I would, as I reckon it would be the making of you. You will never fill the JSS, few RL clubs would. But a 12k stadium that was generally 75% full most games - I'd bite their hands off.

Yes, absolutely, but it is not going to happen. I think the key is to be self sustaining not fixated on a particular capacity. Think 10k is about right for clubs like ours and yours, big enough to get in everyone who really cares but create a bit of demand through being full a few times a year. Scarcity or perceived scarcity of tickets can help sales, nobody has ever worried about not getting in to a Giants game at the JSS.

It would be very helpful to move to a more appropriately sized stadium. But it would not be sufficient - the current management of the club would not know how to exploit it.

10k in the JS means staring at 15,000 empty seats

10k in a 12k stadium would lift the roof off the place

The atmosphere at the JS is very strongly linked to attendance size. If you fill it, the air crackles with excitement.

With 25,000 on, it is an incredible stadium - I’ve not been to one better. With 6,000 on its like sitting on a shaded park bench with lots of space to spread out.

We pay based on our attendance.it isedvyo be £5 per person- it may have changed.
10k In the 25k stadium would cost us £50.000
5k in the 25k stadium would cost us £25,000

There wouldn’t be much difference between 1000 or 10,000 in terms of cost in a 12k stadium. A little different in terms of numbers of stewards required. And we’d have to pay all the costs of running and maintaining it.

Think we have a good deal.

Why all the fuss over Town. It`s over the top, they finished 5th from bottom and only missed relegation by a whisker. When we played in the middle 8s and survived to play SL the following year, there were no celebrations then. :evil: :evil:

It wasn’t worth 200 million to stay in SL....
