The Kingstone Press Summer Bash – the Championshp’s version of the Magic Weekend - suffered a 34% drop in attendance last weekend compared to the same event last year held at Blackpool’s Broomfield Rd ground.

A total attendance across the two days was 11,805 down from the 16,444 recorded in 2017. Less than 4,000 went through the turnstiles on the Sunday.

The absence of promoted Hull KR and relegated Bradford Bulls – clubs with a healthy following - was not balanced out by expansion teams Toronto, Toulouse and London despite some great competitive performances on the pitch.

A review seems likely before planning for next year.

2015 15,671

2016 16000

2017 16444

2018 11805
