There will be two World Cup games at Workington next year. I hope you go and have a great day.
Was on the WC website today and the 2 games at Workington are available for...........ahem 'concessions' for £15 Keith!! In the Grandstand as well.
I'll be taking me dad, so thats both games for 2 of us for £45 - not a bad deal at all.
There are a few references to the 'shambolic' results/performances of the 1990's as reason for the drop off in crowds. However, in the 1990's the crowds increased especially after some right tonkings in the 1980's - 1990 series 132k aggregate 1994 series 140k aggregate. then down to 91k in 2001 and 103k in 2003.
The 1986 series was a 3-0 whitewash and 100k turned up. Yet another 30% more fans turned up after thta whitewash for the 1990 series.
The gap between a great series in 1994 and then to 2001 was maybe too long for GB to be out of the limelight and off terrestrial tv? In addition to the 2000 World Cup which didn't really fire.
