But did they know there was a game on before you walked in. I would suggest it was quite a small sample of the wakey public, small pub too if you managed to get feedback from just about "everyone".
No, the club / game needs to do more.



The point is there were two of us and at least a dozen people in that pub knew there was a game on and wanted to know hoe WE played.


I am sure the same could be repeated all over and around the City. Lets just say if two of those attended from that pub and the same was repeated all over then your 4000 gate becomes 8000.


One other thing, don't forget Leeds UTd are doing well this season and they had a big game on Sky last night, that always has has a knock on effect to our games.

I wonder if the all ticket system naturally impacts on numbers.

Regarding awareness of the club.
“Welcome to Wakefield - the home of Wakefield Trinty RLFC”
Could sponsors be found to fund signs like this on the main roads in to the city, the bus station and Westgate/Kirkgate stations?


I like that and it would instantly lift the clubs profile. :D

Poor excuse if so, you can buy online or pay on the day, the ticket office/portacabin rarely has a queue outside it.

Ultimately the club need to market themselves and the players heavily but that cost money, money the club doesn't have and Michael Carter does not seem the type to speculate to accumulate.

Yes it would, often thought a mural on all the railway bridges as people travel into the city would look great.

The really out there idea I've had if money were no object would be to 'wrap' the large tower blocks in the centre of Wakefield with images of the more high profile players for the city to see from far and wide.

It would help of there were official road signs directing people to the ground .
Has anyone else noticed there are none ? Yet there are to Castleford's ground.

The most obvious way to increase Belle Vue attendances is to produce a consistent "winning team". Sounds obvious I know, but by that I mean a team that we can expect to go out each week and win a game. The inconsistency of Trinity's performances does not attract the floating spectator. The Wigans, Leeds(until this season), St Helens, Castleford and Warrington fans know that when they go to watch a match they've a good idea that their team will win. Trinity fans have had a negativity factor instilled into their brains since 1979, and crowds won't improve until the results are consistently good.

While success does bring fans...it's not the only route and in reality we're never going to be a Wigan/St Helens etc so we need to find another way to attract fans.

I think we should look at football clubs like Dulwich Hamlet and Palmers FC. They've both created cult like followings by becoming the cool thing to do...appealing to the hipsters.

I think there's huge potential for us to tap into the trendy craft beer and beard scene the north is starting to see. We need to be different, how often does Johnny Vegas talk about St Helens on TV? Could we work with The Cribs...maybe just a gig at the stadium or partner with them etc.

Also, new GDPR regulations will make it harder to create an all encompassing mailing list, not impossible though.

Interesting to see Connor Grace got clubman of the year for his media duties...obviously within the club there's the view we're doing some good stuff.

We would struggle to be a Wigan,Leeds, Hull as they are the only genuine big clubs in RL. St Helens/Warrington in my opinion we could be, what size clubs would they be if they had the last 50 years we’ve had. We’ve more potential than most RL clubs we’re doing ok get stadium sorted some advertising keep it going on the pitch and we’ll be fine.
