They have to sort the parking out for next season, they need to do a deal with some nearby business / school to allow of paid parking. For the three of us it would be a combined 70 pounds on travel to PL, compared to around 5 pound for parking and a couple of quid in Petrol..... If they don't have a parking option, no way we can attend unless they have very cheap tickets (not 25GBP which they are proposing)

Yes Crash. I agree that seems a sensible option that I hope the club explores. I don’t know South London at all but if it’s the case that there is a complete absence of any roadside parking spaces on a non work day that strikes me as pretty rank. The problem is, of course, exacerbated by the fact that public transport, to all intents and purposes, doesn’t run on Sundays in London.

I’m conscious I didn’t respond to your point on LBs work with schools.
I’ve seen a few things in programmes and it looks like they try and engage but my only experience was when I went to a mid week game and there were a lot of excited school kids in attendance who were mascots. the thing that struck me was that, I think, without exception all were of Asian descent. I don’t know enough about the Ealing area to know if that was atypical but I wonder how fertile ground that is. I don’t recall seeing anyone of Asian descent at any other games so it looks like that work did not land, at least in the short term. It may be for many reason that that ethnic group don’t fancy coming to matches. It may be difficult to unpick and address the reasons short term and I suppose it might be one of the reasons why the management of LB feel a move to another area might be productive.
I, like I guess other posters, have no experience of running a professional sports club but it’s clear there are loads of challenges which perhaps it’s easy for us fans to dismiss/overlook.

It's good to see the players themselves volunteering to help with The Wimbledon FC club Charity, getting out in the community, we have got to start off in the right way, then carry on! Be interesting to know if there are primary or junior schools in the Wimbledon area involved with London Primary & Junior Schools Rugby League, who give credit are doing an amazing job! The Finals last week were a great example to the game in the north, where school sport is on the decline.

The club should be aiming at marketing, in Sutton, Carshalton, Mitcham and Morden where a lot of the population is working class and they are not too far from Plough Lane.Might even be worth linking up with South West trains and Thameslink for promotions involving tickets and travel.

Big time as you can see from some posters, nothing the club does is right. £20 for a ticket is wrong its too much. An offer of £10 for a ticket is apparently crazy from the emoji. Am not sure what would please some.

lol...if it were cardiovascula surgery, I'm sure you'd chime in with some pearl of wisdom.......but you're neither a heart surgeon nor a marketer, so leave discussions about "upping the price before dropping your drawers" to those of us with a Masters Degree in Marketing and a list of satisfied sporting clients.
I'd type in crayon of the option were available....just so you can grasp it, but £10 for a game after you tried to screw your regulars (unsuccessfully) out of hundreds is not going to get the attention of Charles Saatchi......but as usual, apologists gotta do what they do! :CRAZY:

This clearly underlines what the club have got wrong.

Charging walk ups less or the same as ST/ half STs is not a strategy to be recommended and does feel a bit of a Liberty. Having said that, it does look like the game as a whole, with the exception of Barrow, is struggling to get people through the gates. I noticed that Oldham had a £12 pre book with accompanying child free and that walk ups were £19. I wouldn’t suggest we should look to Oldham for guidance in how to do things but it might be that our practices are not completely out of kilter with others. The truth is the TO game is unattractive to many of us as we are likely to get spanked and so panic price drops might be the only way to encourage a few through the door. Quite why we are in a position to be drubbed by TO at home rather than it be a good competitive game is, of course, a whole different discussion.

The clubs priority in a pandemic should have been to retain ST holders. Putting up prices was a ridiculous decision in the context of that and a potential mid season move.

Well any marketing, like communication would be welcome but this really isn't a class issue any more, even if it ever was. The obvious starting point is AFC fans but unless Broncos have a team that takes the Championship by storm I can't see many new fans sticking with what a lot of us have over the last 40 years. These are different times. :(
