HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS YES

HULL FC YES

HULL KINGSTON ROVERS YES

LEEDS RHINOS YES

SALFORD RED DEVILS NO

ST HELENS NO

TOULOUSE YES

WAKEFIELD TRINITY YES

WARRINGTON WOLVES YES

WIGAN WARRIORS YES

CHAMPIONSHIP

BARROW RAIDERS YES

BATLEY BULLDOGS YES

BRADFORD BULLS YES

DEWSBURY RAMS YES

FEATHERSTIONE ROVERS YES

HAILFAX PANTHERS YES

LONDON BRONCOS NO (New stadium will be at Broncos v York on March 6th)

So not counting London Broncos and Cornwall I make that 19 out of 35 (Not counting Broncos/Cornwall) 

Rules are doesn't matter what division the team were in however must be where they play now (Hence my low score in League 1 as have been to the old Doncaster/Hunslet at Elland Road/Oldham Watershedings/Rochdale/Swinton Station Road)

 

+ over 100 grounds watching the Broncos play at home:)) Only joking but prob around 15 LOL:)

GOOD LUCK

All the current one except,

Toulouse - I've been but not that ground.

Catalans - A regret as such 

York and London 

WWR and Cornwall.

My dad is the same as me we've been going together for years but can add WWR and York.

Super League - 11/12
Missing: Toulouse (though I have been to both Blagnac and Minimes)

Championship - 11/14
Missing: Newcastle (though I did see Gateshead at the International Stadium), Sheffield (seen them at Don Valley, that uni one and Bramall Lane, but not OLP, even in its previous temporary guise), York (been to Huntingdon and Bootham Crescent and will be going to the new gaff in February)

League One - 8/11
Missing: Cornwall (will have to save that one for the Challenge Cup!), North Wales Crusaders (though I have seen them at the Racecourse and Cefn Druids, and will be going to Colwyn Bay in the summer to watch Noel Gallagher!), West Wales Raiders (that'll be another for the Challenge Cup).

All of the ones I've been to have been watching Leigh, apart from Coventry which was a game against Warrington Wizards in the NL3 days because my mate was refereeing.

To my shame, I don't know whether Oldham are at Bower Fold for 2022 or back at Whitebank, but I've been to both (albeit Whitebank was for games v Featherstone and Rochdale rather than watching Leigh).

Of the other clubs/grounds no longer existing, I saw Blackpool Panthers (x2 - Bloomfield Road & Memorial Ground), Celtic Crusaders (Brewery Field), Chorley Lynx (Victory Park), Doncaster (Belle Vue), Leigh (Hilton Park), London Broncos (Griffin Park, The Hive, Trailfinders), Oldham (Boundary Park), Salford (The Willows), St Helens (Knowsley Road), Swinton (Gigg Lane, Park Lane), Toronto Wolfpack (Lamport Stadium), Warrington (Wilderspool), Wigan (Central Park)

I'm missing 5 now - Cornwall, Midlands (been to Coventry a few times though), West Wales, Toulouse (been to several other grounds there though), Broncos (been to 10+ of their old grounds).

Do we count Sheffield as their new ground is on the site of Don Valley? Have Oldham confirmed where they're playing this year?

Sheffield doesn’t count given Don Valley was in a league of its own, albeit one based in Eastern Europe. You can still have Coventry in my book though given they’ve only changed name rather than grounds.

Could open up a commercial opportunity though if fans had to return to tick off a ground whenever the name changed. Wakefield, Cas (why is it always those two?!)) I am looking in your direction!

Don't get your point, what exactly are you asking Cas and Trinity to do?

Change the name of the ground more often than the wind changes. 362 name changes since any sort of structural work at either ground. 😊

The name of the ground has never changed, It's always been Belle Vue and still is. The sponsors name changes every now and then but in truth I think that's only happened a bout five time.Your shirt sponsor changes regularely but you are still Leigh.

Atlantic Solutions was the first, whilst it was the Mobile Rocket for the last four years I think. I'd guess at three in between over a 20 year period.

Truth is when you own your own ground like us and Cas do you can call it what you want, when you rent off the Council restrictions apply. Bit of an own goal for you there.

I've been to watch Toulouse (V Featherstone) but not at the current stadium and thats the only one from Super League I havent been to. In Championship I've not been to London Broncos, Sheffield Eagles (since they moved from Owlerton) or York (since they moved to their new stadium) I've been to all the League 1 grounds except Cornwall (that will be rectified this season) - also Midlands will be playing at a different ground from the Butts Park stadium that Coventry played at the last few year, and I understand that Swinton are playing at a different stadium - which will be at least 3 I've seen them play at.

Didn't realise we'd signed Noel Gallagher!

All of the NRL Grounds with the exception of the New Townsville stadium though have been to the old one plus games played at Carrara, Redfern Oval, Sydney Showgrounds, Mackay, Gosford, North Harbour (Auckland) and Eden Park etc.

All Super League grounds except the French ones - Quelle Surprise..😉

A lot of former grounds, The Boulevard, Wilderspool, Knowsley Road, Hilton Park, Central Park, The Willows etc

Quite a Few Championship clubs but have yet to make any of the Cumbrian clubs, Featherstone, Hunslet or Dewsbury.

An elecletic mix of "event" and International venues from Doncaster, Blackburn, Murrayfield, Cardiff Arms Park, Millenium Stadium Cardiff, Olympic Stadium Stratford, Wembley, Old Trafford, Edinburgh Eagles (2000 before the Cup Final), Ayr RUFC (Scotlabd A v France A) , Wrexham FC as just a few

And of course when I watched the Broncos, The London nomads would play far and wide such as Bridgend RLFC (away), Leicester Tigers RUFC, Gillingham FC, Leyton Orient FC, Charlton Athletic FC, Esher RUFC, Harlequins RUFC, Barnet FC, Brentford FC and probably a few others I have forgotten.
