Sorry Buddy, I meant what was the solution to the expensive hotels given that plenty of runners have bagged them already?

Covered the itinerary with the moderator already....my fixtures were designed on maximising Hull fans attending weighed against the cost of accommodation that will already be full.......

....as for the expensive Hotels?

It is what it is. As I said, most of the fans for the games as scheduled can do a there ad back in a day scenario.......if you really want to make a weekend of it, then pay what the asking price is, but don't blame the RFL, for whom this cash cow is now more important, as they have undoubtedly been offered more cash than Newcastle would pay.

I can see Magic weekend being binned in favour of a 9's event soon, or are they going to pick the national side on the basis of "he looks like he could play it"?
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Yep, it is what it is. Don't like the fixtures 1 iota and that's me with a neutral head on.

That said, looks like I'm off so hopefully it will be good. If it's not, then I'll moan like hell in 6 months time and be £500 lighter. :mrgreen:

Great City is Liverpool. Matthew Street will be busy . Only downside is there isn’t much to do around Anfield .
The Sandon , Albert & Arkles are close by but won’t be able to accommodate the footfall for MW.


There's loads more pubs than just those three within a five minute walk of Anfield, and they all seem to cope on LFC match days which have bigger crowds than this will have, so I'm sure they'll cope. There's a fan zone directly behind the Anfield Road Stand, and a big screen area set up behind the Kop for all LFC games now too, so I'm sure they'll be in use, and as you say Stanley Park does offer extra room for the RFL to set something up if they want to.

Hotels are expensive in Liverpool every weekend. It's one of the most visited cities in the UK for overseas tourists, and also a stag/hen magnet, so it's never a cheap place to stay. I'll only be going on the day Wires play anyway, but I imagine most fans of north west clubs who do go for both days will probably just go home on the Saturday night and then back on the Sunday morning. I acknowledge that's a lot harder for those from Yorkshire or farther afield, but at least it reduces the demand for rooms slightly. You don't need to stay in the city centre though, as anywhere on the Merseyrail network will connect you easily. Get the Travelodge in New Brighton looked into for starters. There's also Southport, elsewhere on the Wirral, etc all within easy access.

The only issue I can see is the marathon. It does seem like very poor scheduling.

Magic weekend at that place. As a diehard Evertonian just what I was dreading.

I'll just go for the Saints game and get out asap.


It's a good chance for you to see a win there for the first time this millennium, so every cloud.

I think the RFL are doing a very good job in arranging our major games to coincide with other big events, its as though they don't want to attract any new fans by giving them loads of hassle to get there.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.

The RFL weren’t responsible for picking the Magic venue, that would be on Super League and Elstone and co.

Maybe they will have people selling tickets on the streets to supporters and runners of the marathon.

Or they could get a flyer in each of the runners goodie bag they get at the end of the race with a discount (as season ticket holders get) which says buy online or direct from the Anfield ticket office.

Wonder if Elstone (Everton Fan) has an ulterior motive to get the Anfield Pitch destroyed by playing all those games on it.
