What a marketing faux pas.

Biggest club game for years at an iconic stadium and our marketing staff can't get this a plug on our national TV.

Hang your heads in shame.

If it had been Yawnion the Beeb would have been all over it.

Robert Elstone needs to pay a big salary to bring in a marketing man with some serious clout.

it's not a big deal, it's not on the BBC, why should they care?

FA cup final today, MUCH bigger story than a gimmick in Spain.

It's just a French rugby league team playing a home game in Spain. Hardly 'earth shattering' sports news. :CHEERS:

Indeed, but the persecution complex of some RL fans is laughable.

You miss the point missed spectacularly.
The powers that be, in charge of our game and SL, in particular, should be getting this story all over the press and TV.
Yes, it does clash with the FA Cup final but, it's likely to be one of the biggest crowds in the SL era for a regular league game and its the reigning SL Champions vs the Challenge Cup holders, England v France (well, Catalonia) in the home of Barcelona and if RL cant gain some coverage for events like this, it's time to give up.

My family live in Barcelona and it’s been all over the news there for days

I’m a Barcelona fc member. We got offered discounts for the game so it seems the Spanish are doing a decent job of promoting it
