Toronto already has twice as many fans as Salford. Toulouse, if promoted to Super League, will attract thousands more fans than Salford can.

The sooner that Salford and Widnes are replaced by Toronto and Toulouse, the sooner the British media, corporate sponsors, and the British public will start to take Super League seriously.


Bet you St Helens, Warrington and Wigan can’t wait to play in front of empty stands of 0 supporters, 3 times a season.

Staying off topic. Salford don't play in Salford, they play their home games in Eccles (Trafford), 6 miles away. If Toronto do get into SL, the fans will soon drop off, as they will lose a lot more than they win. Have you seen any of their games ? Most of them stroll around like it's a theme park, they're not even watching he game. And when have Toulouse ever had a crowd of over 2K...What drugs are you on Chorley Boy, local magic mushrooms, washed down with some cider ? :D

One can also note that Catalans, before they entered Super League, never had more than 1500 fans at their games. Now they can get over 9,000 even against witless Widnes.

Expect Toulouse's fan base to emulate Catalans' fan base and rise exponentially once the team is admitted into Super League.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2019!

Avignon for Championship in 2020, Super League in 2021!

There were about 650 people at the Toulouse fev game last month. With a healthy contingent from Fev. Neither myself or my uncle paid to get in either as they were dishing out freebies in the queue.

Let me get this right, people were queuing up to pay to get in, when someone comes along offering free tickets?

Anyhow, regarding the match, I love watching Widnes when Houston plays, the gift that keeps on giving.
Fudge-it.

Correct. Officials of Toulouse.

You two must have been at a different stadium.

They were dishing out free beer too, did the same at the Batley game (and others ) too :D
