No matter what the price was RL fans would want it cheaper it’s always the way

I've paid to watch both the Bradford Bulls pre-season games broadcast on OurLeague so far. £4.95 each, bought in advance of game day. Bargain, IMO. The coverage was good n'all.

They are. They seriously are. And will later moan that rugby league is skint.

As they don’t like to announce how much they get for sponsorship deal’s, i can’t see them announcing the viewing figures on the OurLeague App. I’d imagine it’s easier to get COVID-19 infection rate stats from the big cheese in North Korea, than the wheeling & dealing at the RFL do. Plus you get less warmth from the Red Hall gang.

Featherstone Vs Batley on Saturday

 

You'd imagine in the same sort of region? 

I’d expect more for a league game, if I was say cooking Sunday tea I’d put any league game on my tablet in the kitchen if one was on Our League, but I probably wouldn’t bother with a friendly.

That's free viewers though, how many will pay?

At the moment with no crowds for a league game home season ticket holders get it free. Although again difficult to work exact amounts in the 1500-2000 range as a standard league game for most in the Championship as an average can't be too far off.

Make it a fiver (£3 in advance) and people will watch.

Stick with a tenner.... tumbleweed.

I will definately watch 

 

More than anything covid has made me realise how much I miss our sport and my team

 

I doubt I will miss a home game now for the rest of my life

It's not really a tenner is it. It is a system that encourages you to buy in advance, rather than leaving it until the day and forgetting about it or finding you are busy. 

A fiver for a game is perfectly reasonable.

Is that Featherstone figure not both games combined?

No. The first game was 100 (ish) less, I believe. They tweeted about it the day after I believe.

I wish it was a fiver on match day too!

Sometimes fans can’t commit beforehand but then a window of availability arises at kick off and you’re penalised by paying a tenner. 
 

What’s the point in increasing the price?

You’re not penalised, you’re just not rewarded for being early.

I’d pay a fiver but not a tenner, I can’t commit beforehand and therefore they’re losing out on business.

It does make sense to have one price whenever the pass is purchased, Our League are already committed to turning up and screening the game the cost involved to them will remain the same for broadcasting and the automated selling of passes so why risk turning away customers by inflating the price on the day, I can't see the sense in it but I am always willing to learn if someone would advise me.

As far as the OP is concerned surely the figures for the testimonial games such as Tommy Makinsons and Chris Hill should be published...!
