20,000?

Do your homework maybe, Cov have averaged over 20,000 for many years so what's this Fantasy Island bull?


"Homework" done and you possibly need to be careful what you wish for.............

Home gate average for Coventry City,

16/17 - 9118
15/16 - 12,570
14/15 - 9332

3 Season Average = 10,340 to hit 20,000 you will need to increase gates by just short of a 100%, I tell you move to fantasy island and you just might do it. You may as well make the move as you have no home at the moment

I understand that the 'Safety Advisory Group' are only advisory. So were GTFC happy to loose over £5,000 income or were they bullied into it by Humberside Police and/or NEL council?

Maybe Humberside Police wanted more extra money to police the match than the loss of income would be?

...and those figures would have been boosted significantly by the likes of Sheffield United, Bradford City and maybe Walsall in a local derby. You'll get nothing like those kinds of followings down here - us apart, of course - which again will significantly impact on your avergae attendances.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

😂😂😂

Yes obviously based on three of our worst seasons in history......amazing what some success might do.

I'll be back to talk Fantasy Island with you later on in the season

https://www.nelincs.gov.uk/safety-certificate/   has information, without it the club can't have fans in the ground.  

Seems it won't work but does if you independently type it in.........

“The Council supports the fixture taking place under the stewardship of the Club subject to the following condition:

As a condition of the safety certificate the capacity for this fixture be reduced through no further sales of tickets to away fans (Coventry) with immediate effect and a 20% reduction in capacity for home fans.”


Signed on behalf of North East Lincolnshire Council

This sets a worrying precedence.  Done it once, will do it again!

Even more worrying is the 20% reduction in Town fans. What possible reason could they have for to do that?

We still do not know the reason.

aaahhhhhh.....i think i see......if i interpret correctly the club have refused or decided not too allow police in the ground (presumably they would have to pay extra to have police on duty if so)  looking at that wording, therefore the amendment was put in to limit the numbers so our part time stewards were not over stretched.

Could easliy be a plain financial decision by the club,   potential police bill 10K vs  lost revenue 4.5k  for instance. No brainer.

Just leads to more questions.

Is the ground no longer deemed safe at full capacity?

If that is the situation, let's hope that clubs looking at our 'boisterous' away support don't decide to do the same to us. Still, if they do, I'm sure that JF and the board will fully understand that other clubs are only protecting their 'revenue streams'   But then of course, they will still get to see the match live !!

Maybe some number cruncher could come up with the ideal figure allowed into BP that would create maximum revenue. Obviously screw the fans that may miss out.

Of course, opening all four stands for a checkatwat game must make perfect sense !!!!!!

I really hoped that getting back in the league would make us a bit more professional.  Clearly not


Why?
