Surely not. The guy would've killed our club with his crooked actions. Still involved with the south stand group which is why he still seems to swan about as if he owns the place. Should never be allowed in the place again.

Funny story if it's who I think this is about.

 

Someone close to me works for Falkirk council and was doing stuff for the killers gig at the stadium, they somehow ended up speaking to this former director who stated the Falkirk Stadium was the 'biggest arena in Scotland for music!' 
 

Not wanting to be rude the person I know replied nicely 'Wouldn't that be hampden or Murrayfield?' 
 

Our former director replied in a deadpan manner 'No it's the Falkirk stadium' 😂

How much does it even accommodate for at full capacity? I mean even the hydro is 14300

Think there are approximately 8500 seats but obviously for a gig they can sell the pitch as standing tickets as well then also fill the corners in with temporary stands bumping the overall capacity up a good bit in comparison to what it would be for a football match.

21k if using full capacity of pitch I’m sure, but I’m sure I heard 25, but that might be just my imagination.

There is the rub regarding concerts. Falkirk Council take a large cut as and employees or services provided will be charged with a massive mark up Falkirk Football Club are tenants of TFS do the groundwork and the council sit back and wait for the payday.

The mugs that signed up to this one sided deal regarding our home ground should be hunted.

Falkirk own the pitch and all pitch facing areas (ie the seats). I’d wager the council will get a cut for use of car parks and the rental of hospitality suites but otherwise it’s our cash.

There were 21,000 at the Little Mix concert in 2018. I'm assuming that was a sell out?

I don't know how much money the club made from that but with the Killers playing two dates we'll hopefully double that. A quick look on Ticketmaster and the first gig is virtually sold out including hospitality and the end blocks of the north and south stands. The second gig still has a bit of a way to go but I still reckon around 15,000+, or similar to the Elton John crowd in 2012

The board statement just released paints an optimistic picture. Pretty much a back to basics plan but at least appears to be thought out and justified.  It looks like we will also be back to grass after next season if they are looking for a training ground way from the stadium.

Think it’s also on the optimistic basis of us getting promoted too.

An honest appraisal of where we are as a club. Hope the “lost” supporters can see past the embarrassing conveyor of BODS/people/players that have shamed us, and get back to purchasing STs and PATG.

A lot of words to say we're skint and our commercial operation is a disaster!

It would seem in order to "control non-football costs" we seem to have reverted - if we ever deviated from - relying on volunteers with professional skills to work pro-bono which, in my view, is a nonsense considering the amount of work realistically required in the areas mentioned.

I can't say I'm as enthused as others about the statement.

Yet to see tangible change happening which aligns with the pillars the board describe their instigating.
