Recommended Posts

Expansion Ideas !  Playing Venue, making the boardroom bigger, marketing, open to investments by high quality companies, on field performance bonuses, expand fanbase with community inclusion, digital advertising, social media, tv, radio, streaming games live. school promotions, quality players and coaching staff. (present staff and coaches unknown quality at the moment). Selling the company to venture capitalists. Eddie Hearn leading the British RL into a better place. Paying players & coaching staff well to encourage to go that extra mile on and off the pitch. Setup a charitable trust etc.. Maybe Regionalise teams if they cannot afford to survive.

All views and ideas welcome.

I thought we had a long term  rental agreement with OMBC. How is it Avro United are the main tenants. Didn't we keep up with the rent or something. I agree White Bank had lots of potential at the very beginning. Having a synthetic pitch is no good for RL you need grass. White Bank has loads of ground which wasn't utilized. We could of totally redesigned White Bank. Wider Pitch, Seating Stands, Developed A larger Car park, Main Pavilion, Training Pitch, Bar, Function Room, Proper scoreboard. We could have developed White Bank long term to a 15000 seater stadium it had loads of land. Couple of old tennis courts etc.. Another wasted opportunity.

Oldham Council prefer the Football Club over the Rugby League because they think there's more money to be made !

When in fact, if you can tap into Oldham's growth potential of Rugby League over Football then the growth potential of RL wins hands down!

 

It's just that no one has figured it out yet ! I'm not waiting another 24 years for us to be a power again.

Sadly, we weren't a 'power' 24 years ago. I think you'll have to go back a LOT longer than 24 years to find a time when we were a 'power' in the world of Rugby League.😪

All the land around Whitebank has either been built on or is owned by others.
