  1. Dewsbury have a very long lease* but don't actually own *999 years from around 1994
  2. More a view of the reality of what has been built rather than the fantasy island idea some posters on here have that this is going to turn Sheffield into a financial force within the Championship. When this 1st phase is completed (at the end of June) the stadium will have a capacity of 1320. Here's a picture of the 'new stadium'
  3. 800 according to this, increasing to 1320 at the end of June and at that until there is further development https://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/sheffield-eagles-let-down-again-says-mark-aston-after-latest-stadium-setback-3701530%3famp
  4. You've just realised that despite me posting several times as to the reality of this new mythical stadium ie a just short of 800 seat stand*? They will not finish it for next season, nor for some time after either I'd expect. The full development was pretty much dependant on SUFC ladies playing there but the falling out of the football club's joint owners a while back put paid to that. The Eagles only have a 5 year lease so it's not even guaranteed to be their long term home! * the main function of the building is offices/conference facilities for the OLP not as a sports stand
  5. Because season ticket holders are counted whether they attend or not
  6. Even when it's 'working' they can only manage to post 19 names despite the requirement for 21 existing since the start of the 2020 season.
  7. The RFL Match Centre sort of has them on (still only shows 19 players despite 21 being a requirement for some time) although that section has been down the last few weks
  8. Hardcastle and Gale out injured for a while and Hellewell went off yesterday. So he plays on the wing with Hall likely to slot in at centre.
  9. And Fev Twitter, who also report Callum Field going to Widnes for the remainder of the season
  10. Don't believe it is. Pretty sure capacity is around 6k. There are approx 5k seats and there's no way 5k are allowed on the PO Road terrace. Before the 2019 GF Davide Longo stated that capacity could be increased to 7k fairly easily.
  11. And Simon Finnigan leaves Widnes.
  12. Absolutely re bookings. Looking at Dewsbury's pitches this coming weekend a 5 a side pitch is available on all 26 of the available 1 hr slots and the 11-a side pitch on 10 of the possible 14 slots........
  13. Your figures are fanciful because (and this is by no means a complete list) - the pitches are not fully booked - they assume no costs - maintenance, wages, electricity etc - VAT - initial set up costs and likely on going loan repayments
  14. Yeah, Dewsbury are rolling in it.....
  15. A few years ago Dewsbury installed 3x 3g pitches (a full and 2x 5-a-side size) on 'their' land to rent out and look how that's boosted them......
  16. So why continue with the FT plan if the money wasn't there?
