Re: Ulster in Financial Trouble

Thanks again Westdr, I was wondering if it was just me that couldn't find them! The Turnover numbers show quite a striking difference especially Munster who are losing just under 1 Million Euros a year on a 17 Million Euro turnover. That is a very poor financial performance, and the two SA players ...

Re: Ulster in Financial Trouble

Thanks for that WestDr. You seem to be very close to the mark . I now am wondering about the other provinces especially the Turnip money pit? Well Brian... Here is the turnover for each of the provinces: https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/rugby/numbers-don-t-add-up-to-open-aviva-if-two-metre-rule-app...

Re: Ulster in Financial Trouble

That's excellent detail WestDr, something has occurred to me if we had no matches during the tax year extension does that give us the actual cost of running the province before income in that season? Thank you, but all based on the UR 2018-19 Financial Report on the UR website and some 'reasonable'...

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

Just out of curiosity, are any clubs offering refunds on membership? Ours isnt, and I don't think any member would expect it. Touch times ahead. so please go spend you cash over the bar's. Yes, certainly most of the hockey clubs I know (in England) are not offering refunds on membership, mainly sin...

Re: Ulster in Financial Trouble

What are Ulster saving in the rates? The LPS website has the NAV on the ground at £438k, with a rateable value of £235,727.71. The key bit is whether UR are able to claim the 80% discount for sports & leisure facilities on this rateable value. p36 UR 18/19 Annual Report notes that in 18/19 they pai...

Re: Ulster in Financial Trouble

No doubt Audrey Harrison has more than a few of these types of I&E scenarios on her lap-top.... The 2018-19 are the actuals from the UR 2018-19 report pp35-37. This is where ScottishBrian got his figures.There is no I&E/P&L table in the report and all values are from the commentary with some estimat...

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

Well, Niner, as you acknowledge, the contract is between the season ticket holder and UR. Its terms are laid out clearly on the UR website as are the related Stadium Regulations, which also cover some aspects of ticket holders responsibilities. I agree to these when purchasing the tickets and also i...

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

M Likewise And Niner.......Westdr has been offered a credit.....Not a cash refund as required by law. Thanks Bobbie, If he asks for a cash refund and Ulster rugby refuse that then yes a law has been broken, that's not the case as yet I believe. I'd be unhappy if IRFU are asked for cash refund it's ...

WestDr, I’ve read the FAQs again and take your point. While the FAQ to which I referred is capable of more than one interpretation, the others are unambiguous, as is the email to ST holders.
No problem - happy to help. If you want to follow up with your own email to UR, feel free.

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

And as an aside, I'd say the pressure was on judging by these two articles in the 42 rugby... https://www.the42.ie/munster-5-5118656-Jun2020/ and https://www.the42.ie/rpa-english-premiership-clubs-5119082-Jun2020/.

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

Thanks for the polite inquiry. To answer your two questions: 1. The issue is that there are refunds for match ticket and hospitality package purchasers for the 4 matches, but not for other classes of tickets (i.e. season ticket holders - who have paid in advance and thus received a discount) for the...
