support and interest in sports clubs soccer especially goes beyond the boundaries of where they play. Leeds United are a major example. In essence they are West Yorkshire's club and draw support and sponsorship from there and well beyond.
For clubs like Featherstone to increase their attendances significantly they need to attract interest from well beyond their immedeiate vicinities and I don't mean the villages up the road: a sort of microcosm of the Green Bay Packers. This would be a major task even if the club attempted to address it-and that's no disrespect to their excellent commercial department and would be or would have to be a major turnaround in the club's ethos
