Topics I've Started

North Stand,Headingley.

04 March 2015 - 08:59 AM

If people aren't aware,the cricket section of the North Stand has been condemned for safety reasons - ticket sales for the Aussie one day game this summer are on hold.Capacity reduced to 14,000.

 

If it can't be made safe,the Stand will have to be closed for all cricket matches,including Lancashire in the 20/20.Yorks CCC can't survive without Test match status and for that,they need the North Stand.The Aussies are due to play a Test Match there in the summer of 2019.

 

I therefore predict that there will be a brand new North Stand at Headingley by summer 2019 - not sure of the implications whilst the Stand is demolished/rebuilt.

WCC - sell outs?

12 January 2015 - 10:00 AM

According to the Saints fans forum,their game is heading for a sell out,with 'over 13,000 tickets sold and ' a few thousand' remaining.Only single seat tickets and standing remaing.Hospitality sold out.

 

Also seem to be selling well at Warrington and Wigan.

 

And that's without the Russell Crowe influence,when he arrives.Should be a great weekend for all involved/speccies/tv coverage.

 

From elsewhere,I understand the Newcastle weekend is going exceptionally well,with a lot more weekend tickets sold than previously - seems people are spending the full weekend in Newcastle,hope Gateshead maximise the oppourtunity.
