London Broncos to play 12 of 13 home fixtures 2013 at `The Stoop'

33 posts in this topic

London Broncos will play 12 of their 13 home Super League fixtures at the Twickenham Stoop next year, including the visit of Wigan Warriors in May, traditionally a fixture that attracts one of the largest crowds of the season.

The club will play just one regular Super League fixture ‘On the road’ fixture during 2013, the round 18 visit of Warrington Wolves, due to essential pitch maintenance work at the Twickenham Stoop. The venue for that game will be announced as soon as possible.

The club would like to remind 2012 season ticket holders that the early renewal deadline is this coming Tuesday December 11.

Fans wishing to secure the discount prices with great savings on an adult season ticket will need complete their purchases before that date.

- To sit in the LV/West stand with no seat preference the ticket office will allocate seats on a first come basis.

- In January 2013 season ticket holders will be given the opportunity to change seats (date to be published after early renewal period closes).

How to purchase tickets:

Yes I got that but the point being that "somewhere else" isn't exactly precise.

Given that the on the road games have generated bigger crowds, we may see an even lower average this year unless the club does very well.

Not sure why there was a ref to Wigan. Last years equivalent fixture was also at the Stoop

I think its because a lot of Wiganers make a weekend of it and they want to ensure that they feel confident about booking hotels and buying tickets as its one of their highest they don't want anyone holding back. The game got switched by Sky one year and all hell broke loose in Wigan because of people who had already pre-booked hotels for the game, playing in May the game day switch is unlikely.

I would have liked to have seen the Wigan game at Orient as it would have been a great atmosphere in a part of London which offers most oppportunity for RL development. Also there is a nice bar in the Stratford shopping centre (introduced to me after the Bradford game) which has loads of real and world ales.....

A game at Orients ground would make more sense to me than Gillingham.

Easier to get to with Tube and rail links, and not so far from the end of the M11

What do the London fans and London based northeners think?

Actually, the two fixtures taken on the road last year both generated lower gates than the corresponding fixtures in 2011.

The fact that they looked good compared to the rest of the gates at the Stoop last year says more about the ability of London Broncos to p*ss of their own fans to the point where long-term season ticket holders stopped going.

Really?

Yes, really.

There is no information about the 13th game in the bit of text that you quoted.

The information about the 13th game is that there is no information yet. For the majority Manx quoted, the games are at the Stoop

The reason they highlighted the Wigan game is due to the fact that when the fixtures were originally released, both the Wigan and Wire games had the venues as tbc.

Yes, I know that, that's why I said "the question is where the 13th game will be played". There still isn't an answer to that question.

oh well, wherever,whenever, it'll be wrong. The club provides the certainty that so many have been asking for, and guess what?

No you didn't, and that's what is causing the confusion:-

THe question being where the 13 will be played?

Can you see why Manx answered the way he did?

Did he answer where the 13 will be played? He only answered where 12 would be.
