Gutted this ain’t in Blackpool always look forward to the weekend away in a neutral venue. Can see why not all York fans be happy that’s what it’s meant to be a weekend away.

wonder also the reason why it’s been moved from Blackpool I get it season just gone fixtures moved forward and Blackpool was playing at home that weekend but this year they shouldn’t have a fixture.

Maybe maintenance to the pitch or ground.

Blackpool fc doesn't want RL thats pretty obvious, York was second best choice, simple if unfair

The RFL stated: “The Summer Bash was first played in 2015 at Bloomfield Road in Blackpool which remained the venue until 2019.

It has not been available in 2022, when the Bash was played at Headingley, or in 2023, hence the move to York.”

The reason why the Championship Summer Bash is being held at York rather than Blackpool as it moves away from Leeds Rhinos’ Headingley – TotalRL.com | Rugby League Express | Rugby League World

I’m sure once the dust settles people will enjoy the day/weekend here, I think it will be a success if the club (and council) plan it properly.

Some of the comments have been ridiculous though - I’ve read some people say it should’ve been taken to Fleetwood (2672 seats) or Morecambe (2173 seats). A lot seem to think the LNER is miles away from the city centre, it’s 2.5 miles away, not a bad walk with pubs along the way and there’s buses every 10 minutes. I even read one Castleford fan say there’s nothing for kids to do around the ground! There’s lots of parking, which I’m sure can be pre booked or plenty of free spaces in the local area. Yes, York isn’t cheap and it’s race weekend so rooms will be snapped up but there’s lots of accommodation in the wider area. 
 

What were the alternatives apart from scrapping it which wasn’t really going to happen - I’ve seen people suggest it being tied in with Magic weekend and played at Manchester City with the SL teams playing at the main ground and championship teams at the reserve/women’s ground (1.9 miles from Manchester centre) or the same setup at Newcastle with championship teams playing out of Kingston Park (about 5 miles from the centre).

If we're measuring the distance of a ground from the city centre by time taken to travel, then the LNER is only about 2 minutes by helicopter.

I understand you wanting to big up your ground's connection to York city centre but a Metro system with trains capable of seating 100+ people plus 500 standing beats a park and ride shuttle bus any day of the week.

Having said that, your kind offer of a helicopter service for the Bash is noted and appreciated 😉

Don't know what the general feeling is amongst Championship fans but so far the feedback in Halifax seems to be split between just going to the Fax v Batley game or giving it a miss all together.

If you support your team you will be there, too many fans look for an excuse not to go to games.

If all they do is put some games on and hope people come, then I don't expect it'll be any sort of success. If they put on a proper RL festival with other entertainment & facilities that makes it worth attending, then it could be great.

We're 37.5 miles away but doesn't seem like it we go that often to York.

Are you suggesting that the York club are running the Bash and not the RFL? Surely the RFL have rented the ground from the council/stadium Co for the weekend?
