DRAGONS VIP RAKING IT IN:)


Recommended Posts

One of the best things about the Dragons is the VIP, my wife has 6 passes per match as part of the sponsorship which gives us reserved seats all season pre match drinks and a before or after match gourmet dinner ,with cava wine and water guest speakers etc.On average there are 400 at this with another 100 in lounge seats nearby + upstairs 300 and the brasserie around 200 all up 800/1000 on a match day .

Today we bought 3 more VIP tickets for Thursday for friends in Cahors which were 200 euros each + VAT ,do the maths its cheaper upstairs and in the brasserie however the Dragons match day VIP brings the club in between 125/150000 euros which is incredible, i remember being back at St Esteve when it was a 20 euro buffet:) and all the profit goes to the club the entire thing is wonderful and brilliantly run not to mention throughly enjoyable.

Hats off to the club i can only see maybe Leeds anywhere near these numbers.

Sadly my lot have an inexplicable aversion with France. But slowly very slowly I am melting this deep freeze with the slightly left field notion of watching RL in either Perpignan, Carcassonne or Toulouse. 

So cheers Paul, I hope to use yer description to persuade the raggamuffins. 

On another point, the south of France is obviously not the north of England, but what is it that the Catalans do that could be transported to their fellow SL cousins?

Its funny the thought of a brasserie in Broughton actually doesn't seem so fanciful  these days, with Prestwich up the road. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/it-everything-locals-loving-manchester-23633904

And I am sure such eateries are not as fancy as tha in Cas or Hull, but I bet there will be something, even if just a chipper, that would be memorialized if in rural France and would leave you feeling "Les carottes sont cuites," as you stumble away.

So what's the trick fella?

Maybe someone could point this out to Derek Beaumont, who doesn’t see what Catalans and Toulouse bring to the sport and thinks they should be replaced with Leigh and Featherstone

Great news Paul, but a few comma`s and full stops wouldn`t go astray 😉, I spent twenty minutes trying to work out what a `water guest speaker` might be.

Having known this place extremely well, this would have been my most accurate quote from the piece:

"When I was younger, it was quite rough. It was all old man boozers that were a bit dodgy, there used to be fighting, and no eat-and-drink bars that you’ve got now."

It's clearly gone up in the world from when a Manchester Evening News reporter referred to it (on a Sunday visit) as like something out of the Eastern Bloc.

I remember being at St Esteve for World Cup game (PNG & ?) and the buffet. Wonder whatever happened to M Rosbif? 

My wife complains I selfishly stop her fulfilling her true ambition -

she really wants to be a rich widow

I think that the main thing is the culture which is different in saying that though i have had brilliant times at English clubs last year we went to Warrington/Wigan/Hull FC and each one was fantastic.

Many clubs do a great job engaging with local companies but more needs to be done however the local companies always will be the bedrock of corporate support after that just expand ones horizons.

We have a database of 60000 UK companies and you would be amazed at the many big global names that are either in or nearby to our great historic clubs its a goldmine which some already exploit very well:)

Could be both LOL Perpignan has its dark side as do many places everywhere an Ex South African USAP player who had a bar in the old town (Right old seedy joint but lots of fun) was murdered by one of his customers a few years ago lovely guy married a local girl and also came sometimes to watch the real handling code:)

Everywhere has its bad side:)

It was Tonga. I was at the game and the buffet table groaned under the weight!

I think he meant "the sport" thus increasing media coverage for example, which benefits the game as a whole, something I'm sure all club owners would welcome.  

Is subsidising poorer clubs something that Leigh's owner would want to do,or would he prefer to have a larger slice of a larger cake?

Actually he means Prestwich. The suburb just north of where SRD may play in two years and would be an excellent pre and post match venue given its burgeoning mix of bars, pubs and eateries.

But thanks Mr Atlantic. I find your posts very interesting.

In a more general way, it would be encouraging to think good practice is being shared amongst our elite clubs on these issues. For what you say, it sounds that Catalans have got it right.

You touch on a very valid point which I've raised before.

Our clubs are so locked into a dog-eat-dog competitive death spiral, they can't see the wisdom of sharing information about what works.

Initiatives (of any kind) which engage with fans, increase enjoyment, promote endearment (loyalty) and ultimately raise revenue, pioneered by any particular club seem to be closely guarded secrets.

A free exchange of information of this kind, doesn't diminish the creators club but has the potential to strengthen the whole game.

In this regard, we are not competitors but more like family members, who should be willing to share what works.

I think he would prefer for Leigh and Fev to replace Salford (poor crowds and soon to be moving to football ground 5,000 capacity) and Wakefield (inferior ground to Fev.)
