  1. Yes very much it's similar to the way all the various competition, origin, state league etc logos in Australia were rebranded in to be similar with room for title sponsors a few years ago. The Americans are by far the best at this as has been mentioned everyone knows the MLB, NBA and NFL logos even if they know nothing about the sport. My own personal recent favourite is the MLS logo which is changed in to each teams colours on the jersey and individual clubs marketing.
  2. It might be worth getting script coverage then a professional can give you a good idea of what's going right or wrong, the cost is usually around a oner. There aren't many UK companies that accept spec scripts but I can send you the links if you want?
  3. Yep another missed opportunity 73,631 WC Final 1992 Wembley 66,540 WC Final 1995 Wembley 57,034 Ashes 1994 Wembley 54,569 Ashes 1990 Wembley 50,583 Ashes 1986 Old Trafford 46,615 Ashes 1990 Old Trafford 43,390 Ashes 1994 Old Trafford 41,271 WC Opener 1995 Wembley 41,135 SL series 1997 Wembley 40,324 SL series 1997 Old Trafford 39,468 Ashes 1994 Elland Road 39,337 SL series 1997 Elland Road 39,120 Tri Nations 2004 Elland Road 38,572 Tri Nations 2004 Etihad 36,348 Ashes 1948-49 Station Road 36,294 Ashes 1948-49 Odsal 35,619 4N 2016 Olympic Park 35,224 Ashes 1959-60 Station Road 34,709 Ashes 1929-30 Station Road 33,758 WC Opener 2000 Twickenha 33,024 WC Group 1960 Odsal
  4. There are about 43,000 on sale and a lot of availability, I reckon high 30,000's.
  5. Last year there was no advertising in London, this year the tube advertising has been very impressive in Stratford and there are posters at various busy stations. Yet we are probably going to get a smaller crowd at OP then last year purely because of having it on a Sunday and not getting as many travelling fans. I'm not sure how much more they could have spent on advertising (considering all the discounts) and made a profit. I think scheduling and the business model are the real things that need to be addressed.
  6. Capacity is 57,000 in the future if needed (not sure by whom) with a few toilets added they could un tarp the seats right at the back for 66,000
  7. Wembley capacity too big Old Trafford pitch too small Olympic Park pitch too big St James no hotel rooms Elland Road no leg room Any regular SL stadia capacity too small We are buggered for the World Cup
  8. It would take smart planning because if we just throw games all over the country in big stadia then it could be 2000 x 10. An opening weekend could be England v Oz and opening ceremony 4.00 on Saturday at Wembley a game in somewhere like Wigan 8.00 Saturday so people who don't travel down can watch on TV before going. On the Sunday a game at OP at 1pm for those who have stayed over (tube marketing could feature both games saving costs) and games in or near the heartlands at 5 and 8. This kind of strategy could be repeated for games at villa park and Coventry for example.
  9. Sounds good to me too. Apart from cricket there isn't really any regular international sport in the midlands so could be a great opportunity to increase our fan base and not rely on travelling fans so much.
  10. Having thought about it. We could get in a position were it is theoretically possible say in a World Cup year 1 mid season test, 1 warm up test and potentially six World Cup matches. Confed cup year 1+1+5. Tour year 1+1+3. But as there isn't going to be a reduction in their other commitments and with pressure from clubs and players unions aren't we likely to see resting and squad rotations come more in to the equation?
  11. Adrian Morley had a 16 year test career and got 47 test caps so we would pretty much have to double the amount.
  12. Its for standalone fixtures not double headers hence why Wembley 2013 isn't top for Eng/GB v NZ
  13. Attendance wise just outside top ten for GB/Eng v NZ in England 44,393 2015 Olympic Park 42,687 1947 Odsal 37,475 1951 Odsal 36,131 1993 Wembley 29,938 1951 Station Road 29,031 1947 Station Road 28,445 1947 Headingley 27,486 1998 Bolton 24,741 2015 Wigan 24,443 1955 Odsal Hopefully we might be able to change the GB/Eng v Oz in England top ten from an all late 20th century affair in two weeks. 73,631 WC Final 1992 Wembley 66,540 WC Final 1995 Wembley 57,034 Ashes 1994 Wembley 54,569 Ashes 1990 Wembley 50,583 Ashes 1986 Old Trafford 46,615 Ashes 1990 Old Trafford 43,390 Ashes 1994 Old Trafford 41,271 WC Opener 1995 Wembley 41,135 SL series 1997 Wembley 40,324 SL series 1997 Old Trafford
  14. Ah well not a lot can be done about the gap as it wasn't originally designed to be a football/ rugby stadium. It's a best we can do retrofit. Also I believe right at the back you may not be able to see high kicks as the floodlights now underhang the roof and on the original temporary roof they were above.
  15. I'm not sure which pictures you are referring to but a lot of the terrible view photos on social media are people being mischievous. They still haven't fitted retractable seating so the bottom level is currently sold temporary seating in front of the unsold permanent seating. Various photos were trying to claim they are selling seats behind seats which isn't the case.
