    Few games will be moved to other grounds and other kick off times, but fairs fair right?

    I assume you are talking about the Rugby ,yes things will remain the same as the EFL games will take priority,right ?

    Exactly. If they don’t then we can’t play there, so that basically means everyone saying Pollard will do this that and the other are fretting for nothing.

    Trouble is if he owns the stadium he will put up more of a fight.Like the essential pitch maintenance in the summer, can’t see him agreeing to that one .Anyway I am going to bask in the glory of our great win at Sunderland with a couple of glasses of red .The actual football has almost become an irrelevance with all that’s going on off the pitch.At least it’s boosted the spirits for a few hours .

    I admire your stance mutty lad posting it on the rugby board too, but it won’t make it possible.

    Latics games will have to be played at the dw regardless of the competition and the academy will have to play a number of games there also.

    Actually phonix…i’m not sure if the EFL has the preference rule that the PL has and I think Bristol City have moved games to a Sunday to accomodate Bristol Bears before.

    The one rule though is that we have to play our games at our registered first team ground.

    We don’t have a reserve team.

    As the document on this page states, at our academy level some games must be played at the first teams stadium

    Cheers Egg. I cant see where it says that but I’m not going to trawl through a 43 page document to find it. What are the sanctions if your kids dont get to play at the DW? Is the sanction bigger than the cost of pitch repair?

    Strange that your kids MUST play at the DW, yet not a single U23 or U18 Sunderland game is played at the SOL, nor are any of their away fixtures this season played (or scheduled to be played) at a first team ground.

    Page 18.

    Funny you should say that about Sunderland though as pages 24 and 28 seem to show Sunderland players playing at the stadium of light. Perhaps they were photoshopped?

    As well as the one at Goodison.

    Its a photo from 2-3 years ago. The shirt is from the 18/19 season.

    I went from the official SAFC.com fixture list for the 2020/21 season for U23s and U18s. As I said, not a single U23 or U18 game has been played there this season. The last U23 game to be played there was 30 Aug 19. I am unable to provide the date for the last time the U18 played at the SOL as the official website only goes back to August 2016 (they havent played there since then).

    I’ll ask again – what are the sanctions for not playing youth team fixtures at the main stadium?

    You’ll have to ask the efl. I can only go off the 2020/21 charter which says games will be played at the first team venue.

    You were set to play your last 3 games there according to your website. COVID obviously put a stop to that and may have for this season with protocols etc.

    Pretty sure we can’t move EFL Trophy games too (or any EFL game)

    Back on topic after a pointless points-scoring exercise by the moderator:

    I see that Wigan Warriors paid £241,818 to host 16 games at the DW in 2019 – source was their official accounts for that Financial Year. Very clearly laid out. Absolute transparency, as you’d expect from an owner with integrity.

    How does that compare with the amount of rent paid by the Latics? I’ve looked at EOY accounts for 2019 for both WAFC and Wigan Football Company, but cant find a breakdown, or in the case of the latics, even a mention in the expenses column.

    Slag him off all you like, but the one thing he isnt is a money launderer.
