Thatís exactly it KES.  A different level now.  TV will be involved from BT Sports.   Letís hope the local businessís havenít suffered massively from the Covid situation and can find the budget to support the Club.

If there is significant TV coverage of matches going forward, then prices of advertising opportunities in the ground need to reflect that .

At the same time Mr. Hearle needs to be careful not to burn too many bridges with the small local firms on the way, incase they are needed on the way down.

On a slightly different note, will we be the only PT teams in the National League next year, (if none of the FT go PT for corona costs)?

That's fair enough, but a 150% increase?

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a misunderstanding there.  That would make a £400 pitchside board now cost £1200, or an £800 board £2000!

TV coverage or not, with the financial fall out due to the Pandemic, I would have thought many sponsors (all over the country)  will be thinking long and hard about the amount they usually spend on sponsorship, let alone increasing the expense by 150%.

I cant see it myself, so l'll believe it when I hear it, or read it, from an official source.

Does that 150% mean an increase in notice board uptake or is it price increase. It is not quite clear which one you mean

Come on Hill have a word with yaself.  :laughcry:.   Using the Word  Ďcostí must have given you a clue.  Plus where in the ground could 150% more boards be accommodated?

Sorry Hill, I will try and be much clearer in future instead of using the cost I will use the term in exchange for money. :countingmoney:

Could it be that it's a 50% increase..ie cost is now 150% of the original cost ?

Apparently there always used to be a supply at the Council Offices.

Always a problem when they were needed though, as the Cuckoo Clocks always had to be moved out of the way first, to be able to get to them.

We did have 3/4 Podcasts in a Week Dil.  I would think SC has had a very busy week since promotion was confirmed.   A lot of Prep to put in place in readiness for next season.   I would think he needs to get his ducks all in row.   Hopefully including pulling in a big name sponsor who can help in supporting the Club at our new level.

Canít expect the owner and the fans to fund it all.
