This is the only bit I'm not in agreement with - as much as I'd like to see whatever form WW take continue to play at Sixways it's not viable unless they can get enough people through the door to keep the lights.If Wasps also become tenants it would prevent a Worcester Warriors Men?s team playing at their own home ground due to fixture congestion. We see no other reason why Sixways could not host a phoenix Warriors team; Atlas WWRFC is hiding behind the idea that a lower league Warriors team would ?not be viable at Sixways?; we believe that they are simply trying to maximise their income from third party clubs and have no interest in reviving elite level men?s rugby under a Warriors banner.
I don't know the figures but running a stadium on matchday must cost a pretty penny with insurance, energy, staffing etc. - what's the break even figure for that, vs how many can they expect through the door for a fixture vs Cannock/Bloxwich/Stone etc.? Can you even charge entrance for games at that level?
I guess the pitch is plastic so they could run double headers with Wasps if they had games the same day?
