Yea I don't think playing at St James is necessarily a good idea yet. Quite often happens in the WSL that teams play in the main stadium and it's just a weird echoy(?) vibe as you're not going to get a decent crowd. Better to play somewhere smaller for that Liverpool game, but really try and push for a heavy attendance. 

Maybe Kingston Park, but let nufc season ticket holders in for free to try and start encouraging more people in.

 

Also, if we do win the league this year, they'll need a huge overhaul of players to do well next season. Will be interesting to see if they go down the Man U women route of bringing in a high profile manager to attract some bigger names. I assume they'll go pro if they're in the next league up, so a half decent squad will have the chance to do a double promotion!

Do they get promoted to the next level if they win the league this year? If they do is the next step, the same league with the mackems?

We're in Division One North (4th level) this year meaning promotion is to the Northern Premier Division (3rd level), Sunderland are in the Women's Championship (2nd level) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women's_football_in_England#Pyramid

Seen someone on Twitter saying how good it would be to get a big crowd and even Wor Flags there. Would be sensational that. Think I’m going to go like.

Women's football is only on the rise and there's lots of expansion growth in the future. Great time to get on the wave and start something inspiring that future generations can get onboard

Be class if people really got behind this. Wor flags would be amazing but i guess for them they need an idea of how many will actually be there before they can plan a display.

Nice to see the owners doing the right thing 

 

we could have the best womens team in the U.K. in 5 years time if they do it correctly 

 

the talent in the north east is exceptional 

 

definitely going on May 1st 

 

hopefully they can get promoted and aim to get promoted again next season into the championship

Be great if they got a biggish crowd as it would get big publicity for the lasses.

Yes agreed , I can see at least 8k or 10k 

 

Might be busy/delayed…. as it’s only (pay at the gate) 

 

think the divisional record at this level is Notts forest women (4,500)

If they did pre-bought tickets, it may have got the attendance up as people could buy them in advance instead of buying them on the day and do something else instead, where as pre-bought tickets become more of a commitment.

It’s a bank holiday the Monday after isn’t it? So hopefully if they can get some events on around the ground, that may encourage more people to come?

I can't say that I watch that much of womens football, mostly when there is an international tournament, but I appreciate that they don't go down like they've been shot every time someone comes near them, like the men do.

Reminder the lasses are playing at SJP on Sunday. £3 a ticket.

It's a bit weird that there not allowing you to buy a ticket in advance. How do they know how many stands to open, or how much catering they need? Could be anything from 500 up to 30,000 people and everyone only has 45 minutes to get a ticket at a turnstile!!

What's the reason for the fixture change? Was meant to be Barnsley but seems like Alnwick have taken their place. It's good for Alnwick players, and might add a bit more on the gate being a sort of derby, but seems a bit strange just to be swapping matches around, especially with Alnwick giving up a home match.

Agreed , it’s ridiculous 

 

they should of sold tickets in the month running up to this 

 

then cash turnstiles on the day 

 

seems a strange decision and will probably mean the attendance is lower than it could of been

? do you know how much goes into maintaining and keeping a pitch to Premierleague standards. In the next few seasons we could have  European football plus cup games. It is somthing worth bearing in mind.

Agree and think this will significantly limit the actual attendance on the day which is a shame.

Surprised they didn't pick a weekend we weren't playing at home the day before. 

 

Hopefully a good clear plug at the Liverpool game might pull a few more in. 

 

Hope some people come out for it.

We literally have 1 more home game left after this weekend 

 

They will probably rip the pitch up anyway throughout the summer 

 

if not , they have 3 months to get it ready for next season 

 

The womens team should be able to play 4 or 5 times a season on the pitch without any issue (they could easily fit in them in and around our fixtures /  run of away games / international weekends)….etc 

 

no doubt in a few years time they will have their own mini stadium (like Man City) but I still think 2-3 games a season would be manageable for any top club / groundsman ?
