At the moment Hamlet are the bigger club in terms of fan base, match day revenue etc by far. Broncos are potentially far far larger in fan base, revenues etc. They were far bigger in both when Hamlet commenced revitalisation.

The basic principles of fan attraction cross sports - see Peter Deakin's achievements at Saracens using a blueprint developed in RL. Hamlet have won two major national awards for this sort of stuff. They certainly aren't the only information source the club could approach however they are strong candidates to pick their brains, especially as they were offering their knowledge for free.



And if Broncos management want to see how it’s done it’s only a relatively short drive round the South Circular to Dulwich….

Depends which site the club is based at.
Currently postal address is a managed regus office in Richmond....so the partnership with the dons doesn't appear to include a desk :?
It's all pi55 and wind now anyway.....Hughes has either decided or been convinced that 5k in 3 years is possible.....I await his statement blaming fans or anyone else but himself for this latest farce falling on it's Arris.

It is a shame that the club have started offering discounted tickets to other sports clubs yet the real fans are expected to pay the full price. I know is is getting new potential supporters in but speaking to someone who was involved in Afc Wimbledon once those cheap tickets disappear not many of their fans will come back.


Unfortunately Broncos are now in a position where they need bums on seats and substantial numbers of newbies are unlikely to pay £22. The vast majority of £1 tickets won't stick around. The trick is to make sure the same people can't repeatedly get in cheap. Get enough in and X% stick around. Dulwich don't discount now. Enough people stuck around and told their friends so they now sell out Saturday games

The cheapo offer that got me through the Broncos door for the first time led to 20 season tickets.

In an ideal world you certainly wouldn't sell tickets at £1 to anyone but Broncos are now in a big hole and expecting thousands of newbies to stump up £22 is unrealistic.

Wherever Broncos have moved to they have been good at getting out to the schools and setting up RL training and teams, the problem is this has not really encouraged parents to bring the school children along to games.


I've made a few phone calls. The football club mentioned has nearly 900 junior players. Let's assume they average at 1.5 parents. By my dodgy maths , that's 1350 parents + 900 kids do potentially over 2000 free admissions. It's typically 20 or so at first team matches.. And apparently Broncos are good at putting on lessons which may pop up once or twice and wonder why no parents turn up.

Google fan engagement, it's really not rocket science.

Also you have to look at what you are paying for. Its not super league, its not even a full time team. The key part of the match day experience is the match (maybe not for the kids under 10 perhaps). If the performance on the pitch is dire with limited skills why pay £22.

Broncos had a decent product when you brought your first season ticket.

Advantage to the broncos now is most newbies wouldn't know that what they are watching is 1 step away from park rugby.
It's the match day experience that the club will be pushing hard....although at £22.00 a pop and a fiver a kid, there are better and cheaper ways to pass 90 minutes whilst blowing less than £50!
