    Poole Pirates 2020

    The video also stated that crowds were much bigger when Pirates were last in the '2nd division' back in the early 90's. They dropped considerably when Poole went British League!! And that is definitely true cos I was there. In the modern era the Holder/Ward/Janowski teams brought the crowds back.

    With due respect, if you are living on £94 pw sick pay, why/how would you buy a season ticket?? In the meanwhile stay safe.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    I would think that if/when the season starts, Championship fixtures will be reduced from the original number to what is considered viable depending on dates. So refunding now and resuming with a new price if/when the new number of fixtures is confirmed is likely by most clubs I reckon.

    Top Class were race sponsors last season!! Looks as though Matt & Helen's French Chateau adventure may not be featured in the current series of 'Escape to the Chateau' starting on Channel 4 today, as filming is not yet complete and the TV crew have been summoned back to UK due to the current coronavirus situation. Doubtless Matt will give an update in the first of Poole's weekly video Q&A's on the club website and social media platforms.

    There will need to be a reduction in the number of fixtures then as far as the Championship is concerned!

    Great to see former World Champions Tony Rickardson, Mark Loram and Havvy attending Middlo's Testimonial.

    As I understand it there is the option for one new corporate sponsor who might come in as a 'gold' sponsor. However the club are seeking to promote all the existing 'gold' sponsors in a similar way so as not to favour one over another. There are also 'silver' and 'bronze' sponsors who get a reduced package of benefits/exposure. Maybe an announcement before or at P&P day.
