It is without doubt a great facility in a nice area. However by no stretch is it a stadium! No way can it be used in SL.

Yes BV and Weldon Rd are old and decrepit but they still hold five times as many people.

The answer for London would be to keep this as a base. Get the capacity up to say 4000 and play all but a half dozen big draw games there.

Then rent and heavily promote for big games across London.
Big draw names would perhaps be Leeds, Wigan, Saints and Hull or Warrington. Offer real incentives for local and deals for away fans.

Manageable grounds to rent. QPR, Fulham, Millwall, Milton Keynes those sort of size venues - ones where an 8k crowd wouldn’t look lost - maybe some of the RU grounds?

Obviously all dependant on promotion.

Leeds saints and Wigan elsewhere..... The rest 3k capacity gates to start with and then if need be more games back at the stoop........ Its 4 miles away...... We should never have left but that's a whole different thread...






JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Yes, for the production of chemicals, not so much for the scenery though
