4887 at Toulouse today. 

 

That’s encouraging, considering they’re nailed on to go down and were struggling to get 1,500 in the championship.

Having Warrington and Wigan at home at end of Feb - beginning of March is a bit of a missed opportunity for a summer sport.

They have to play some teams at the start of the season?

Didn’t you used to say they’d average 10k in SL? Or maybe that was some other posters with wild expectations. 

They will get much better crowds in the summer months (union closed season). They will also enjoy more travelling support from May to September with Saints, Leeds, Hull, Catalans at home during the summer

At the moment they are up against the Top 14 RU and Six Nations. France were playing today and are on a bit of a resurgence.

Not forgetting Covid being behind us.

Hopefully they won’t be all but relegated by then.

I think Castleford and Wakefield will still be in the #### but they do need a couple of wins in the first 10 games to keep morale going. Wakefield and Castleford away are big games in next few weeks.

That doesn't seem bad for a round that wasn't blessed with outstanding fixtures. It'd be nice to see none of those 4 10k clubs drop below that number now.

Time for Warrington to up their game. We should have 5 clubs with 10k averages at the end of the season.

Agreed. That was a bad opener for Wire. The Cas game isn't always a huge draw and it was a Thursday in weather warnings, but an opener really should be getting 3 to 4k more than it did.

Is the Catalans game being used as a offer/promotion opportunity? It has worked for clubs in the past.

West Stand is open with adults a fiver and up to four kids for a quid each with an adult ticket. But if our starting point was 8k or so for the opener I worry that 10k could still be a struggle. 

Hopefully they are working hard behind the scenes...

Leeds and Wigan getting numbers like that five years ago would have been unthinkable, but these days all in all that’s a decent round of attendances. 

Leeds v catalans at home has never got great attendances, eg 2014 it was below 8,000 i think

This isn't true, they usually get over 13k, and have only dropped below 13.2k a very small number of times. 

The 2014 game you refer to was an all-pay playoff game. 

The next lowest was over 10k on a Wednesday night. 

 

All according to rugby league project

They would not effectively own the ground, they wouldn’t own the ground at all, they would have a lease for the ground as all renters do, Salford will be renting the ground, hence me saying they are not going to spend millions on its development, just as someone renting a house doesn’t pay to build an extension. 

Couple quick ones, based on a bit of work history/perspective:

- secure land tenure (ie 25+ years guaranteed lease in this case) does result in significant uplift contributed by the lease holder. This could be renovations, modifications or general preserving of the condition. This is the case for both private residential holdings and commercial property

- in terms of commercial leasing, it’s normal that any modifications/improvements are funded by the tenant, not the landlord.

So, in the case of Salford, they could definitely look to fund improvements if it financially made sense. If they’re able to keep the hospitality sales, food and drink sales, etc then they probably will look to make modest improvements.

Correct, it's the second-lowest ever crowd for a regular season Leeds-Catalan game.

Somehow again, SRD has our Catalan cousins on Easter Monday. 

Guaranteed big one there to add to the big average................

Didn’t Salford council invest heavily in the AJ Bell Stadium? At the end of the day the club still needs to pay rent to recoup that money, they can’t just spend council tax payers money to run the club be it Salford or any other club. Salford are opting to move out to move to an inferior cheaper rented stadium. 

I know nothing , just saying.
