I am fully aware of the other threads relating to ongoing ground issues, but this is just a simple question - having purchased my season ticket and one or two other things from the shop for next season where will I be travelling to for the home games? Is this still being explored or is the venue known. Just like to know.

Nothing has been released yet, but from past discussions, if you're unhappy with the location (should it not be Belle Vue) when it's released, then you will be entitled to your season ticket money back.

I honestly have no idea where we'll be though, I'd rather be out of Belle Vue tbh, but i know that's not the opinion shared by many. I think the alternatives mentioned have included; Dewsbury, Featherstone, Barnsley, and Doncaster. A couple of years at any of these wouldn't surprise me. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best!
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

If it's not Featherstone, I am struggling to see how Dewsbury will work. This then leaves Barnsley or Doncaster. I live in Beverley so it makes no odds tome, I travel anyway. Of course this is bad for the club but I wonder if it has to be so bad. Transport offers built in with ticket prices, especially season ticket prices. I saw the club post on our grass roots work in Barnsley; Exploiting the links we may have made may help? The Court battle may go on for years. A question that springs to my mind is would I rather we stayed Wakefield Trinity and end up with no home in Wakefield for years, playing at a small ground like Dewsbury and relegated, or could we rename to Wakefield & ?? Trinity and accept things the way they are and remain in SL. I don't know if this would work, with or without a rename,,, maybe not, but we need to think outside the box and outside the City as our Council clearly could not care less about the well being of the club. I read some say that a club outside the City will be the end for them. I would ask why? Why really? Is a car, bus or train ride extra really so bad? Can we not foster support local to a new area? With a heavy heart I think we need to accept the world as it is and move out, at least for now

Supported Trinity for 57 years and will also be there wherever they play however I do feel that moving out of the city will be a mistake and have no faith in the judiciary coming to our rescue. This uncertainty must be damaging season ticket sales. My choice would be Featherstone its a ground where we could create a brilliant atmosphere to get behind an exciting team.
If I was short sighted I could become a referee!

Wasn't that just leverage to push Box's hand? I'd suggest that ship has sailed, things are far more serious now, I for one would be happier at Featherstone rather than Dewsbury but that's just personal preference.

As Jinjer said that was then. Things have moved on. No harm in changing your mind when circumstances change. Featherstone now looking the best option if staying at Belle Vue is a non starter.

It may have been the main thing but I also suspect no one wanted to hear whispers of merger talks again. Saying that if 88m isn't playing ball at all, we could go up there till Newmarket hits its trigger point. :roll:

I probably agree though with what a few people have said, it's closer to SL standard than Dewsbury's (no disrespect to their ground in that) with a capacity just short of 10k so would do us fine in that way. From what I remember reading last year, they were happy to have us there as well. Don't know if that's changed since though. In the mess that we suddenly find ourselves, it probably makes the most logical choice.

Quick one do we know that the Dewsbury stadium does not meet the standards and for what reasons.
