Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

Earlier in this thread the figure of 4.5K was mentioned as a socially distanced capacity, putting access and all the other issues aside, how viable is that and does it refer to 2m or 1m social distancing. If that figure is close, and I have no reason to doubt it, then there will be problems getting ...

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

I both donated my Season ticket refund and bought the membership so made my choice to support Ulster. The sums involved were not really onerous for me as a terrace season ticket holder, around £55 I think, but I decided on balance to donate and would be very interested to know what percentage of the...

Re: Target date for Pro14 restart 22Aug

It seems that the new signings can play in the Pro14 but not the Heineken cup

Re: Ulster in Financial Trouble

I wish, like you, that we could see the detailed accounts as it seems to me that the other provinces, I accept that Connacht need to be, are gaining money from FIRFU that we don't partly through Central contracts and, in Munsters case, allowing them to fund their profligacy. I listend to a Head coac...

Re: Target date for Pro14 restart 22Aug

Thanks for the dates. The talk on the podcasts is that the squad will be the squad you have for next season. So players could end up playing in the competition that weren't there at the start and other players could miss out. For instance Rob Kearney has signed an extension to his contract to take h...

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 w...

Re: Target date for Pro14 restart 22Aug

I wonder if we will be allowed to travel by then as there really shouldn't be a problem getting some sort of crowd into Murrayfield? I understand that there are other logistical problems but we'll have to see what state of lockdown we are in at that moment

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?

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?

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

What about things like accessing the toilets, probably feasible on a terrace but how do you do control that in the stands?

Re: CEO and Coach briefing 11 may

I think the Irish players going to camp is a bonus as we get to see the next generation and blood them. I was thinking about the match against Leinster away and haven't checked but we had, Faddes excluded, a proper A side whereas Leinster had at least 3 Irish Internationals in the starting line up a...
