Yet they still sell out the Grand Finals and SOO.

For me the location is key, once they realised they fooked up the Wembley date they should have moved the final to the Emirates or even take it to Cardiff again.

Makes no sense to suggest Emirates when its being played at Tottenham.

Same for Cardiff, its still miles away and just as expensive to get to.

Etihad is close enough to Hudds and Wigan to travel on the day, thus ensuring plenty more ticket sales.

Cardiff has a vast amount of cheap hotels in the region, and feels like a city centre atmosphere and good rail links in and out.

SPurs is in a rich area, high tourism, high cost, difficult to get to on away days and miles from Hudds and Wigan.

Also, the Etihad is only 55,000, will look much fuller with lower crowds.

The Emirates & Tottenham are less than 5 miles apart, I presume you've got mixed up with the Etihad?

Etihad.

It didn't feel like a rich area to me and that's coming from a Wiganer. Amazing stadium though and thoroughly enjoyed my experience there.

Was disappointed to read that the final has a contract at Wembley until 2027. Feels like the worst option to me. Would prefer to either stay in London at stadiums with more realistic capacities like Tottenham or go north to somewhere like the Etihad.

Final crowds have declined a bit over the last decade but maybe not as much as some people say - remember that the RFL was counting 10,000 club Wembley tickets prior to around 2017. So the crowd has been in or around the 50s or 60s for over a decade and inevitably impacted when clubs like Huddersfield or Catalans make it.

I thought it was a decent crowd considering cost of living and Huddersfield's turnout. Most importantly it looked good on TV which for me should be the priority for any games on terrestrial channels.

Lived in London 40 years, so let’s be clear. Tottenham is not in a rich area. There was serious rioting there as recently as 2011. There are certainly no tourists, and hotels may be slightly more expensive than in St Helens, but by London standards are very reasonable..Not such a bad place to watch sport in an excellent new stadium, but an area a bit short of interest for staying in.

I have already stated that I meant for visitors to the area.
