My guess is 3600 for the teams and 400 for sponsors etc to make the magic 4k

I'm wondering if that's the limit no matter the venues that were available.  Stand alone games may have been the better option.

They say in the Q&A that the triple header was the only way to guarantee BBC coverage of all three games.

Just joking, but thought I would get it in first.

4000 is the limit. To be fair, 4000 at Leigh will look and sound better than 4000 at Wigan, Leeds, Huddersfield, Notlob etc.

Maybe it is only 2400 they are allowing in, only the 3 seated sides are being utilised from next week for the Wigan game, I am a season ticket holder in the standing section - North Stand - and I have been allocated a seat in the East Stand which I am told is for 4 games to comply with regulations, those 4 games go past the date of the semi's.

Ah. In that case, it's a sh*t choice :kolobok_laugh1:

 Initial allocation 600 tickets per team 

Some Leigh Councillor must have something on the RFL because the amount we use that stadium is ridiculous.

Where do we think they’ll be played? Headingley? Wigan? Notlob?

Could be played in a car park just south of Maidstone if no one is allowed in, would it matter if it is a huge stadium, with nobody in attendance?

Would have thought Warringtons just as close.

What you probably don't realise Rob is that the Warrington boundary is only a few hundred meters from the LSV.

The RFL have apparently said one reason it was selected is because of the proximity of the clubs involved.

Do it's on the doorstep of two clubs, one has to travel an hour and the other two. Doesn't seem like fairness was considered in this regard.

600 fans each is an insult quite frankly.

Just what we need, another Leigh and Warrington boundary thread after the million posts on the George Williams thread.

Now this is very interesting...excuses for what?

After around 40 years, in 2016 I stopped being a season passholder at Hull FC because I objected to the way the club was being run and also having Lee Radford as our coach. I have still attended every home game and the vast majority of away games since that time.

So, I have little chance of being able to buy a ticket for this game, much as I would like to as, quite rightly, season pass holders get first dibs.

So I don't need to get any excuses in early for not attending as I won't be able to, wherever it is played.

Remember the semi final in Doncaster in 2016? Being a Hull fan,  I was there, with you being a Wigan fan, I would put a large amount of money that you weren't.

So, what possible reason could I have for "getting the excuses in early"?

Hull FC will no doubt travel the night before or very early on Saturday so they will be ready for the game and, win or lose, there will be no excuses due to how far they had to travel.

Anyway, you must be gutted that your lot ain't in the semi finals now they're being played in a suburb of Wigan.

If it's been chosen because it can stage three games why haven't they used it when no crowd's were allowed, seems strange logic or normal for RL should that be.

Always thought that Man U may have had some input with the LSV management in protecting the ground for the Ladies, I agree in the lockdown when fans where not allowed to attend, the facilities at the LSV with multiple changing rooms would have been a good choice, and to those in the know the playing surface is as good as anything in the country at any sport.
