Great news for the City.

I bet all the posters on here from both clubs will be emotional today...!!

Any positives to be had for the sport on the back of it?

Perhaps. The City of Culture T&Cs exclude sport as cultural output, however, I advise you to watch this space.

 

 

Hull has culture?

 

Yawn. For lazy stereotyping I refer you to the Daily Mail comments pages.

Hull is hardly a hotspot compared to many other areas such as the West Riding & Manchester / Lancashire, and as for the Midlands and Darn sarf!!!

 

So keep your other spots of "higher culture" I'm staying safe  :onthequiet:

At first sight I'd have to agree with you, but I'd have to look at attendances in relation to population size to confirm.

Whenever I see 'City of Culture', it reminds me of an old B/W film I saw when a character, I think it was James Cagney, said, "Culture? I got culture, I'm lousy with culture".

20000 watch the hull fc and rovers games last count 5 of the top barla teams in england all well supported as well as large amateur leagues across the town.

Is there a town that will get 20k plus supporters a game?

Also all city of culture says to me is a large council tax rise for dignitaries and spongers to wear posh suits and eat banquets on people who cant afford it.

Rant over
