crowd numbers

12 posts in this topic

Someone mention crowd numbers at home games been so low but in my view the club have space and the means to make the club more fun for family's. With the summer coming up and hope we have warm weather face painting and bouncy castle would bring people with kids I think it should be advertised tried once as trial

I like your idea.  I think that you are spot on in suggesting that attracting families is the way forward.  It might well  be the best strategy for securing the clubs future.  The problem with all good ideas, of course, is that they need personnel and sometimes also finance to implement them.   

 

Anyway, in the short term, I'm going to try and bring a pal to the next match.  For various reasons I am not sure whether I'll succeed, but if we all try then maybe we can pull the crowd up a little ourselves.

i think playing attracting rugby once again will bring a few folks back up to mount. we have had face painting and bouncy castles and even a decent band now and again that all helps with the day out, am really hoping mr kear as lashed the whip and some players have had a good look at the dews dvd and themselves ready for a better display,dont want or expect to win every game but we should be playing with some sort of conviction. for rest a season otherwise were down to 400 crowds next time round/ B)

It will not bring in the extra or new fans when the coach states in the Batley news that we are going back to basics. How we can be more basic than 1 pass and a drive baffles me. Oh and thats if we can hold onto the pass. We need to expand our offence because to be brutally honest its not good to watch at the moment. Sorry for sounding negative still got a hangover from Dewsbury debacle. I like the family idea maybe worth a try needs some thaught and planning then promoting properly. But the other big change for me and a lot of fans i have spoken to is putting the 2.00 kick off to bed and reverting to the traditionel 3.00pm . All that said now lets hope for a win and a vital 3pts on Sunday. I will be there will You ?? . We need your support.

I reckon that your lot found playing under lights on Good Friday disorientating. 3.00 kick-offs might get them used to such fancy technology in the future.

Agree 100% with Greavsey.

Unfortunately the club comes across as negative as we show little to no ambition, and the advertising is almost as bad as the product on the field.

We are the only club who has ever lost fans after a successful season getting to a grand final - lots of "fans" came out of the woodwork during the play off run, but then quickly vanished afterards as no attempts were made to capitalise on the success we had. To top it all we are now playing some of the worst rugby we have played in years, and We cant expect to bring in new fans while the product we are dishing up is so poor.

Any kind of win will do on Sunday, but it wont be pretty.

They must have been as i seem to have a crystal clear memory of every minute of the game. maybe you should buy a DVD just to check Ernie?
