matchday experience : Sat Mar 02, 2024 7:46 am  
Matchday experience is a total package. Game last night was a good and enjoyable performance on the pitch, and that's the main thing, BUT what is going on with the ground ? No scoreboard, screen not in synch with play, and bar service ,in North stand , has not improved in 20 years. I don't blame the youngsters behind the counter, they obviously are not trained correctly, but the company making all the money. I agree with previous comments about stadium looking in need of a coat of paint also. Come on Wires get your act together, we seem to have change on the pitch, now we need it off it.

You’d expect that now our CEO has less involvement in on field matters that everything off field would be top notch.

They use an outside company for the bars so if they aren’t working properly they need to be told to improve or lose the contract.

The stadium is dirty and rusty whoever is managing it has got to see that.

I've no idea how much it would cost to paint the stadium but I imagine it's a lot. It's not a great look for us though, especially when trying to attract new fans. Maybe we could use the money we used to spend on overrated journeymen to buy some paint.

Stopped buying beer in the ground a long time back, all you got was a pint of soapy liquid and from what I’m hearing is it is still the same.

Maybe I'm in the minority here and I'll certainly never get a job in marketing or hospitality but i dont give 2 hoots about the stadium paint or the pre match entertainment.

I secretly like watching someone useless trying to throw a ball into a washing machine at half time. Other than that, I'm there for the rugby.

The bands in the past, as good as they may be, sound crap over the PA system. That saxophone lady last week gave it a great go but it's February in Warrington, not a festival in August.

Wolves before the match, the wire flyer, whizzy rascal et al, I'm completely non plussed about.

Tbh Philth ,i'm wondering why we didn't sign the Wire Flyer for on the wing.

I too am in your minority about pre match entertainment.

The product on the pitch is more important...get that right and you may get a few more punters thru the gate...ain't rocket science

Lots of fans do buy it and are prepared to queue for ages and pay the grossly inflated prices.

Having queued and paid, what possesses some of them to throw it in the air after we score a try?

Idiots.

Have you considered emailing the club with your thoughts, as a customer?

Its all about the game for me, but I recon I'm not in the demographic the club are seeking to attract.
