Don't think the location as to where our tickets is sold is really an issue, a club shop within a shopping centre that has been in the city for 35 years or so. Maybe if anything, when we had one in the Ridings and one in TW, given that TW is busier these days with more footfall we may have been better off staying there, but then maybe shop rentals are dearer.

I think the problem us that there is little in the way of advertising of forthcoming games, so it's only the hardcore fans that tend to know what's happening.

There has been some good ideas on this thread as to where we could try to convert new fans, or bring back old fans, which, to me is what this thread is all about, from the mobile advertising boards at the side of the road, to the poster who had sent in several ideas. None of which are ground-breaking, or rocket science, and each in turn, may only bring in a hundred or so fans, but if tried, collectively, could put another 4-500 on the gate, which could make a world of s difference to both atmosphere, and the club's budget

Also interviews with them all about the dream team and England selection on Trinity TV, I think it's free to watch those videos as well.


Aye, your right. Apologies all round :oops:

Some really good posts on this thread.

I had a season ticket at cas until 4 years ago. At the time super league signed a new deal with SKY without even exploring other options at getting to promote the brand. Which, in my opinion, for the amount of money SKY have, they do terribly.

What I found in my last year as a seasion ticket holder was that 3 games got moved at the last minute from Sundays to Thursdays, which made it impossible for me to attend.

As such, getting a season ticket was actually costing me more money than paying on the day.

The flip side of the coin is that paying on the day, especially if you're going with the Mrs and/or kids.... You're looking at an absolutel bare minimum spend of £50 for two of you. Given that only fills half a tank of petrol these days it's just not worth it to people with a passing interest.

Clubs as a whole therefore have a massive void in regard to catering for more casual fans.

The people I saw mentioned earlier don't want to commit, or can't commit to a full £280 season ticket, and neither do they wanna pay £25 to walk in.

The "mini-ticket" idea has been tried by most and we hear it isn't profitable, neither is giving freebies away..... Obviously.

But clubs desperately need to find a solution for people who, like me, are fans who can't commit to a full season ticket and find £25 walk up prices just a bit much.

I still go to half a dozen games a year but people with a little less interest than me just won't pay it.

I think we've all had a conversation along these lines in our time:

"how much is it to get in nowadays?"
"£25"
" (insert expletive) "

Football clubs get a ridiculously good deal from TV because SKY, BT Spott etc battle like mad for the rights. There's no such battle for RL/SL. They therefore get the prime slots over a weekend, so as such football clubs are absolutely raking in money even by people sat watching it in a pub

The mini season ticket is something that Leeds Rhinos have successfully brought in, in the past

I little bit of a diversion from attendances, but staying with the marketing theme.

I open the post for the company I work for, and today opened a flyer, advertising sponsorship and hospitality for another super league club.

Do we do anything like that I wonder?

I certainly did Wollo.

Having read it, certainly sounded like the person who had put it together, could have been guilty of mis selling.

Surely you mean "spelt", unless it's being spelled on the sidelines :wink:

Both 'spelt' and 'spelled'are correct, although the latter is the American version coming more and more into usage here.
I always use the original .
