The corporate hospitality bit is great news, but doesn’t explain or excuse the huge drop (not slight drop) from five or six years ago. 

I think that's cos many switched to United when they sniffed the rise.....

It shouldn't be a huge surprise that Leeds' crowds have dropped due to being less successful, a building site stadium, a football team on the rise, plus Covid impacts. Their crowds still hold up well, but hopefully with two or three of those things behind us they can start to build again.

The redevelopment of the stadium then Covid straight after. But it’s easy to forget while Leeds attendances are slightly down from the pre development of Headingley days, corporate hospitality attendance is significantly up, bringing in a massive amount of match day revenue.

I've seen nothing to suggest that corporate hospitality attendance is "significantly up" at all. The club did sell out its existing corporate areas for big games in the Golden era (which given Headingley has almost never-ending additional corporate bits which can be opened up on the cricket side was already going some). However the main effect of the somewhat increased capacity of the new facilities is to transfer people who used to go in the pavilion and up in the Lewis Jones suite over to the Not Emerald Suite.

Prices went up a lot as well mind you so revenue is probably up.

SL attendances for the weekend. If the weather is going to be as bad as they say it is it could knock a few off, especially travelling fans. 
wire v Cas 10,800

wigan v Leeds 11,500

Hull v Saints 11,400

Huddersfield v HKR 5,800

Catalans v Wakefield 8,000

Salford v Toulouse 3,600. 
these are only guesses, please don’t get annoyed if you don’t like any of the attendances

I wouldn't be surprised by those kinds of numbers, but hopefully, them being home openers for these clubs we may see a boost.

Three of those numbers would be worring (Wigan and Hull under 12k for season opener after wins  and Giants less than 6k.

Salford are baked in but they are leaving that box next season so will improve the product.

I’m thinking of the weather SB, if it’s going to be as bad as they say you wouldn’t want to travelling over the Pennines. I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t put off some home supporters, if it’s going to lash it down with severe gales.

Strangely I think the opposite, 11,500 would be a win for Wigan. 
 

Huddersfield I’d be hoping for more, especially with HKR’s travelling support.

Sadly I don’t think the wire one will break the magical 5 figure barrier.

Hull FC sales seem to be doing quite well. Hopefully a 13,000 + crowd for that one.

Hope so, my wife and kids will be out so I can watch it in peace. They did ask if I wanted to go with them 🤔

I think your last point is key... prices went up significantly following the improvement in facilities.

Huddersfield are hoping/planning for over 7500 with possibly 3,000 from Humberside, but as you say, the weather could put a lot off.

3000 from HKR would be a fantastic effort.

There are warnings out not to travel unless it's essential. That's bound to impact the crowds at all games now.
