SWINTON V TOULOUSE FREE ENTRY

Recommended Posts

That's too bad. I'm back on the booze and not a member anymore sadly. Annoying thing is, I've just switched from the AA to the RAC too - dammit!! :mellow:

Oh dear thread title corrected, fun over lol. Good luck to Swinton - hope they get a fantastic crowd!

Swinton Lions plan to throw open the gates for FREE at their upcoming home game against Toulouse Olympique on Saturday 28th April (kick-off 3pm). In addition, the Lions will be charging a mere £22 for a quality two-course meal in the superb new corporate facilities at Heywood Road, Sale.

In the lead up to the match, the club intends to market the game extensively in the Trafford area in a bid to win over new friends. Swinton Operations Director Steve Wild explained, “We have a tremendously loyal hardcore of support from the Swinton area, but we need to think hard about how we can increase our home gates. Letting everyone in for free is obviously a massive gamble in terms of potential lost revenue, but if we can attract a good crowd, particularly from the Sale and Trafford area, then hopefully they will enjoy the experience and become regulars.

“We are also mindful that our regular fans have gone beyond the call of duty over these last few months, and this is a small way of saying thank you for that loyal support. We are mindful that Season Ticket holders might feel disadvantaged by the idea, but we have plans to reward them in a different way on the day.

“We also hope that our loyal fans will spread the word amongst their own families and groups of friends, and maybe we can attract new supporters and sponsors, or perhaps re-engage those former fans who have become disaffected over the past few years.

“Toulouse Olympique is a name which gives the fixture an international and an exotic feel, so hopefully this will appeal to non-regular Rugby League supporters. The fact that we are playing this fixture on a Saturday should also help the initiative – indeed we have no direct opposition from any other Rugby League games that day, nor indeed from Man United, Man City or Bolton Wanderers – so everyone will be most welcome!”

Toulouse bring no fans and most of our fans are season ticket holders so nothing to lose really

I hope this succeeds in bringing Swinton what they want.

I went to a couple of games there last year  against Dewsbury and then Oldham when the battle was on to avoid the drop and also get out of the financial crisis.

Thought it was a good little setup at Heywood Rd and keeping tabs on their website I think the club are making all the right noises regarding direction.

They’re not really local to me in any sense, but there’s something about all that history and tradition that to me should be cherished and safeguarded.

Am planning to go back later in the season.

Shame its on a Saturday. I would have liked to have seen this game (I watch Swinton as often as I can), but there is a full programme of local amateur league games on Saturday which will keep a lot of potential fans away.

I'll make a bet. I will go and if Jean show up to support his favourite team I will donate £100 to the gate. Just has to be obviously French so I can spot him  and then speak French.
