Saints to play Wire at Goodison

16 posts in this topic

If both clubs push this as a real 'event' match and just market the hell out of it, especially to kids, this could be a very good opportunity indeed.

Any Rugby League fans in the Everton squad?

They could get easily over 20,000 for this match. A lot of Wire would go over to Goodison especially if it was a big season opener.

They should get more. If Saints are serious about filling an 18K stadium, and Warrington are playing as well as they are this year, and they market it to Everton fans and the wider Liverpool community, they should be targetting 30-40K

Then again, this is RL. St Helens or Warrington to Liverpool is just too far to go, isn't it.

Great move by Saints if this correct

If the game is priced and marketed right should be 25K plus game.

also, great idea, as Wires only go to the Halton for Semi Finals ;)

"TEMPORARY MOVE ... Saints coach Mick Potter might take charge at Goodison"

Err... no he won't. He'll be coaching Bradford that year!

hopefully they should get 30k and try to set a new sl record

if everton season ticket holders (kids) get a free ticket it may encourage parents ect...

Didn't Tim Cahill's cousin play for Samoa at th 2008 WC? Not sure who it was though. Just checked and apparently he's the cousin of Ben Roberts AND Apollo Perrelini.

St Helens played Castleford at Anfield on 27 April 1997 winning 42-16 in front of 12,329.

The experiment was not repeated....

I like the idea just hope it comes up, would be embarrasing for RL if there are loads of empty seats shown on TV. I think giving Everton season ticket holders free or discount tickets is a great suggestion. If Cahill is a big league fan could maybe try get him involved on the promo side especially when marketing to the soccer fans
