I wonder how long the RFL is contracted to hold the CC at Wembley for?

Early bird deals are available for next year!

It's completely lost its charm for me. Maybe i have been too many times in 15 years.

Pros
-tradition

Cons
-half empty
-expensive dayout/weekend
-miles from action even with £70 ticket.
-wembley locality is like a failed 3rd world state.

A VERY long and expensive day, the only thing I enjoyed was the Camden Hells IPA. Wanted to smack the Wakefield idiot sat next to me... like the above poster says we're miles from the action even at 51 quid, too many part time fans killed the atmosphere, think the passing of RB added to the subdued mood too, not to say anyone can be faulted for the lovely tribute during abide with me.

Me too. I went to many Challenge Cup finals in the 80s and 90s as a neutral, and the day really did have that 'carnival of rugby' feel. You would see fans of all clubs there, proudly wearing their colours, and it was a day to enjoy. These days, it feels more like a day to endure, and you see far fewer neutrals there now.

2009 felt special to me as it had been my first visit for 19 years and at the "new" Wembley but I'm not going again even if we get there. The one mile walk through Wembley to our parking was utterly depressing. If that's the vision for the United Kingdom in the long term I'll be glad to be out of it.

That was the last time I went as well, me and the wife, said that I wouldn’t go again due to the drunken idiots who can’t handle their alcohol spoiling it for the others. Went back on Saturday for obvious reasons, bought decent seats but still had some of the same around us icon_rolleyes.gif Royal box next time icon_thumb.gif

The RFL should run a deal.

Helicoptered in to avoid the crashes on the M40 and the driving from A40 to Wembley and the extortionate parking.
Seats not next to ed up slobs/neanderthals.
Allowed to bring in own food that has basic nutrition.
Helicoptered home.

It's a third empty at best.

I agree you are slightly away than most purpose built rugby grounds, Piedome and Huddersfield the same, we had 51 tickets and were six rows back good for closeness but right on tryline at warrington end.

Wembley better than it was with Boxpark etc, I remember going down the High street for a wimpy back in the day, things are certainly better.

I never park anywhere near Wembley I always park at Hammersmith and get the tube in just a better travelling experience.

I believe the current contract runs out after next season.

Btw, if anyone wants to book a cheep accommodation now for next season.

Wembley final is 7/6/25

It’ll be officially released in a few days.

I know what you mean. We had a family in front of us who looked like some kind of Deliverance/Shameless hybrids, and drunk lads behind us, one of whom knocked over one of his many pints, so I spent the second half of the match with my feet in a puddle of ale. It's just tiresome.

Thanks but not going again, even if it was Elvis doing the half time show and Wire vs Runcorn Highfield.

Amazingly, the idea of a new National Stadium has been blighted by the inaccessibility caused by all the development that has taken place around the area. Stadium parking sacrificed for housing/flats that must be costing residents a fortune to live in them. It has turned the stadium into a London centric development & not one for the long distance fan. I was even shocked to see a mega block of flats right in the middle of the Hangar Lane Gyratory System. How much much more traffic chaos will that cause ? I am sure Wembley would serve the nation better as a stand alone structure somewhere north of London between the M1 & M40 with dedicated access roads & a station & no other development within a large enough distance to allow on site parking for all who want to use it.
It took our coach an hour & 20 minutes to get away on Saturday even though everybody was on board.

I only went due to taking my lad for the first time, just depressing and that’s only half down to the loss. Train home was a disgrace. Think we’re bored of getting there, as someone alluded to I think Wigan fans (lucky for them) are bored of winning judging by how many were out of the ground before me and I left early….same thing happened in the last GF….odd.

Has to move to a new stadium.

Whole day had me clamouring for lockdown again (happy days).

I found the whole experience at Wembley crap. I have now made a decision that i will not be going again. Hours sat on a motorway because of accidents, The cost of parking at the stadium is crazy, paying a ULEZ charge to that idiot running London. Then trying to find a space on a bus because it was full to the brim. Once in the ground i found my seat and was miles from the action. Toilets were over crowded at half time. Prices at the bars expensive. Considering the amount i paid for myself and my daughter to attend for the day i don't see it being a cost effective trip again. Now if they were to move it up North i think you would get far more attending and money spent goes to the areas that support rugby league. Just my personal out look on the day your mileage my vary.
