TOULOUSE GOOD NEWS


Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow Lovers of League:)

 

For those that are interested.

I spent yesterday up in Toulouse and had a nice lunch with the commercial team main points that came out of it.

 

* Confirmed will be full time next season 

* Will make 100% effort to get back up to SL and sign the players needed to keep them there next time 

* Disappointed with the season but learned much to be positive about 

* Confident that crowds will grow next season to average of 5000 + on the back of locals like a winning team new promotions etc

* Big push marketing wise on social media (Already very impressive) special deal for students with one free beer on entry band entertainment etc (Suggested deal with bus company to run them back to and from campus) 

* Local sponsorship doing really well and expected to increase by around 30% next season

All good stuff WELL DONE TOULOUSE:)

 

Cheers 

 

Paul

PS/Damm good lunch went easy as a 2 and half hour drive back home:)

Fantastic, think they will struggle to hit 5k as they got that in SL but think if they can just get back up they can have a covid free shot at it.

Who are they retaining from the current squad? 

Didn't really go into that much as i am more interested in the commercial side, however they did mention that several players have signed new  deals including  Guy Armitage who i was not aware spent much of his childhood growing up in Nice.

Crowds seem to be a key missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle for them. Able to do ok for play-offs but a massive struggle to gain much interest for run-of-the-mill fixtures at the Wallon. To be honest, we heard many of the same noises 12 months ago ...

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

That’s a cracking crowd growth strategy - put on free buses, give em free tickets and a Free beer when they enter the ground. Most grounds would be packed every week.

Its not free the tickets are paid for with one free beer 🙂 and it will be for students only.

Nothing wrong with that as the corporates pay decent money we spend 1500 a match for the VIP at the Dragons (6 persons)  and around 500 at Toulouse for 4  and are happy to pay it as many corporates are.

Seems like it's now a custom for certain Leigh supporters to hijack EVERY and turn it to a pointless debate about something or other. #toxic

Seems like it's a custom now for certain non Heartland fans to focus on away fans or lack of train stations on every thread ? 😉

Excellent news , hopefully their enthusiasm isn't  diminished and they'll ' go ' again , if they earn the right they'll replace whoever finishes bottom of SL , no matter who that might be

Free  tickets? That won't make them any money.

I'd like to come and watch the game, but the last time I caught a train to Leigh it took me to Kent. No idea where I went wrong but it was an absolute nightmare getting home, and a ticket wasted! 🤣

We all have automobiles , it's the latest thing , probably coming to Hull in another 20 years

Tremendous.

Bon pour Toulouse

Bon pour the Championship

Bon pour Rugby League.

If the Game is to thrive, growth at places like Toulouse, Salford/Manchester, Newcastle, London and Birmingham, plus within rest of the French heartland (is there such a word or phrase in French?) is necessary.
