  1. Combined Challenge Cup attendances for each round last year after all SL clubs had entered: Round 6 (8 games) (May)- 26,706 Quarter Finals (4 games) (June) - 28,711 Semi Finals (2 games) (July) - 20,846 With the league trying to find ways to shorten the season, could moving the Magic Weekend into the CC be an option? You could even have it for all three rounds and put them out to tender for host cities to bid on them. Just imagine: Round 6 at Newcastle (8 games over 2 days in May). The Quarters at Man City (4 games on a Saturday in June). The Semis at Coventry (double header in July). The Final at Wembley (bank holiday weekend in August). You could add it to your list of year-round events to promote to corporates. You could sell the game into new markets. You could plan trips well in advance. You could take the Cup around the big cities. You could sell a Challenge Cup "season ticket". You'd attract far more neutrals. I think this would be a great vehicle for boosting the Cup AND adding more big events to the rugby league calendar (whilst at the same time allowing us to shorten the season by a game).

    Magic Weekend Tickets

    Hey all, I bought three tickets to the 2017 magic weekend in Newcastle but sadly we can't make it. I now have three tickets that I'm trying to sell. We bought them for £52.00 (CAT-2 unreserved seating), i.e. they're for the east stand. Give me a shout if you're interested in buying them (i'll consider offers). Being a Rhinos fan, I'm much sooner sell them to another Rhinos fan. Cheers Butters
  3. Read 'Fifth and Last' towards the bottom It says that the RFL are considering changing Magic Weekend to being double headers at three different smaller venues across the midlands/north/north east of the country, on the same weekend. Personally I think this is a bad idea due to these reasons: 1. To kill an established event to try something else. It's taken ages to build up the Magic Weekend into a big event with impressive attendances and atmosphere. 2. They will lose the people who go for the whole weekend every year - who would no longer be able to if it is spread around the country. I happen to be one of those, who enjoys the festival feel and watches all the matches. 3. Groups won't go unless they support the teams on show. My wife and I support different teams, as do my friends and family who come with us, so if they're spread all over the country bang goes that trip. 4. It'll make the event look smaller. Three matches with 15-20,000 (if they're lucky*) at different venues won't look as impressive as 26-40,000 across two days - with a total of what should build to more than 70,000. *away followings struggle enough to travel for a knockout cup semi-final to reach Wembley, why would they suddenly jump at playing a league match elsewhere unless there's a uniqueness about the event? Why not keep Magic and add some double headers at three different venues to Magic, if they want to spread the appeal?
  4. A quick reminder for any supporters that are coming up to Newcastle for the Magic Weekend and will be in the city from Friday. At 8.00pm on Friday 29th May Newcastle Thunder take on York City Knights at Kingston Park Stadium. Admission for any fan with a Magic Weekend ticket is just £5 adults and £2.50 for under 16s. With over 1,000 tickets already sold it promises to be a great night and an ideal way to kick off your Magic Weekend. Kingston Park Stadium (postcode NE13 8AF) is 5 miles north of the city just off the A1 (A696 turnoff marked Airport). There are over 700 free parking spaces at the ground. The stadium is situated just 5 minutes walk from both Kingston Park or Callerton Parkway Metro Stations. The Metro is the local Tyne & Wear Rail Network and has a number of city centre stations. Get on trains marked ‘Airport’ and the journey is approx. 20 mins and costs around £3 return. At the ground we have the recently refurbished ‘Tap & Tackle’ Bar as well as bars and food outlets in the West Stand where supporters will be seated. Thunder Merchandise will be on sale at the ground. For further details please ring 0871 226 6060.

  9. With the magic weekend coming to Newcastle next May I was wondering how Thunder could involve themselves in the party. My best solution is that Thunder commission a "Magic Weekend" promotional jersey for 2015 season. Black and purple in colour with half moons, stars and whatever else to make it look all mystical and magical. Hopefully sell a few to people coming up for the event from other clubs (if its done right and promoted well), as well as trying to get them sold outside the ground over the two days. Could be a money spinner, thoughts?
