Wembley will never be full at the Challenge Cup Final because of the madness that is Club Wembley.

Can't see such a double header happening, anyway.

It does not sell out excluding club wembley. Anyway you see different to me & I think we have taken up enough room on Dewsbury forum on this subject. I am happy to leave the Dewsbury folk to concern themselves with their own club than us 2 outsiders waffling on.

No problem with non Dewsbury fans on here anyway Griff would be taking to himself on the eagles forum. Are the rest on the other site?

Griff - Why is Club Wembley madness?

The Company that I work for paid a considerable sum of money
for a 10 year Membership and an Annual Fee for our 2 seats for
which we get Tickets for 4 events. Any other time we want to use our
allocated seats we have to pay. Surely this sort of revenue is what
underpins the whole Wembley Stadiun re-devepolment and running costs.

I doe seem that many people in general including quite a few on this Forum have
no perception of how much it costs to run a Stadium / Sports Ground on a day-to day
basis let alone the cost of trying to develop further. Most clubs struggle with the cost
of meeting the Health & safety requirements just to enable the gates to be opened for
public admission.

The again, being an Eagles Fan, you do not have to worry about such matters do you? :)

Because it's a policy that leaves a lot of empty seats.

Funnily enough, I suggested that owning your own ground wasn't the panacea everyone thought it was on the Fev forum a month ago and was roundly laughed at. Especially, when ten minutes later, Look North announced that Don Valley was closing. <_<

No, we don't need to worry. We rent. The landlords have the problems of keeping up with Health and Safety.
