If it becomes part of the season ticket package how does that increase revenue? The only game I can see, generating any cash in that scenario, is a Derby.


If they cut loop fixtures, that means 11 home league games instead of 13. This guarantees another home game that could be included in the season ticket package and gives clubs a better chance to not have to cut the prices of season tickets. It doesn’t increase revenue, but it is a way of binning loop fixtures without losing much revenue… maybe.

Happy with everything that IMG are proposing. We, as a sport, need a huge reset moment and a forward thinking approach. Some of their suggestions may be uncomfortable initially, or a break from the norm, but that is EXACTLY what the sport needs.

Am I the only one who doesn't 'hate' the loop fixtures ??

Don't think there are enough games as it is, losing 3 home attendances & a further 20% of Sky money - WTF ??

Would support CC not being seeded so soon, surely that would give more non SL teams a chance of a big crowd & some steady openers to the season, added bonus of some SL clashes making the tournament less predictable.

I would add a team such as Toulouse but apparently the other clubs aren't prepared to share the Sky Money ??

Interesting that the IMG report ranted about the importance of London, Hmmm - been existence 40 years, CC Final, several years in SL, probably dozens of venues & NEVER come close to establishing an identity or local fanbase. They must have some magic pixie dust methinks.

Ridiculous not having a Relegation /Promotion to S/L
What will Toulouse do now just throw in the towel after all their hard work
It will however be an enthralling Championship race next season and some S/L teams will be shi--ng their pants at the thought of relegation

Don't agree. It's all about raising standards across the game. Strive for a grade A and you'll be fine. Plod along happy with your grade C and you'll be swapped out for a higher ranked club

I guess with regard to their infrastructure if they are a category A club by then it won't matter and if they aren't, then IMG see it as an incentive for them to gain that status in the Championship to get included in the top division. What interested me was the amount of lower clubs that voted for it as it was a massive amount of support for the changes there must be a more equatable sharing out of the tv money afoot I feel

Then you increase the teams in the comp. They eventually want at least a 14 team comp.

Its a good theory if and the big if is that clubs have the money to do that. I honestley dont think clubs like Cas have poor toilet facilities by choice, or poor parking and unconvered stands.

The loss of home games will probably see more revenue go down and Sky money also. Who is going to subsidise these losses ?

Cant see it working at all.
