Gaelic football /hurling. Both "amateur" sports, deals with Irish TV companies and SKY.

Generate enough income to allow village teams to have excellent pitches /clubhouses.

Yes but Rugby Union (Leinster - 3 years pro 14 winners and champions cup powerhouses) and football both have good participation.

SKY deemed that a sport in countries (North & South) with population of 5m was worth challenging the mainstream TV stations to get involved.

It will be 1,000 corporate in groups of six :D
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

I have just been offered tickets plus parking with hospitality in the Presidents suite. Before people start shouting I have been supporting Rhinos for 50 years and have had tickets previously in the legends suite, and now I have a number of tickets in the President suite, but I have not been given my full entitlement of tickets.

Mmmmmm, the wording in the email would suggest this is the case,

“ Whilst the pilot will be dealt with separately by the club and local authorities as a one off event, the club are planning for the potential next phase when more members can return to Emerald Headingley with spectators.”

I just hope the “1000” that attend are all die hard fans desperate to experience a return to some live action and not just there for the obligatory corporate freebie.
