Vimto90 Posted August 17, 2022 Share Posted August 17, 2022 I totally and utterly agree standman, however I drove past Cappelow today visiting a site that I was going to and when I drove down the hill, under the bridge and saw the stadium, it brought back memories of various days that I have spent there. I then started thinking that if you didn't know that was a stadium, you'd probably drive past and think it was some kind of storage shed or factory or something like that, I didn't even see any advertise for the next game, strips etc etc. It must be a hard sell for officials of Morton & Albion Rovers to attract people along to the stadiums when they are the way they are. I like going to these grounds but I've been going since the 80's and had many a good day at Cliftonhill as well, but how do these clubs attract new fans in?? What are they doing to attract fans and also, how many are put off when they arrive (or look at Google images) and think WTF!! As i said, I do agree, but by clubs existing, it's not enough to get people going along. I share an office with someone from Greenock who's family are born and bread there and they are all Celtic season ticket holders, 3 generations, brothers and sisters, husbands and wife and all the kids go (think he said 18 in total) every home game. How do clubs like Morton and the others break that and get them to come to Cappelow or Cliftonhill?? I'm not sure you can, you have to think out the box but sadly, I think your facilities are a stumbling block as well We (stenny) are probably one of the best at trying to promote & get new fans along, young especially. If can get a few to stick around great but it's nyon impossible at times, I don't overly agree about the facilities tbh it's the product on the park being so bad at times I don't blame people for not coming back or staying.I brought my nephew who was 12 to some games last year, the games were rubbish, he liked the abuse the ref got the best, this is the big problem, especially when there so much on TV/youtube with Man City etc. It's either in you or not. You pretty much need to get very lucky, maybe get a big cup shock or some proper succes (like Arbroath) that a few got invested in and keep invested. I hate the fact bus loads go to Glasgow but at same time I can't critiscise folk for not wanting to fork out money watching what I watch a lot of the time. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
