Oh dear.

Um, er, erm, well, do you think the Ospreys have well established and long-term sponsors?

Do you think that the Ospreys haven't picked up new sponsors this year and last?

Is it possible that you haven't researched your topic?


Mind you, they haven't got a County Council spending ratepayers' millions, the Ospreys don't have a significant number of County Councillors among their supporters, I guess ... btw, ever heard of the phrase "Ultra Vires"?

Here are the Ospreys Lions - http://www.ospreysrugby.com/Teams/Lions

And I raise you the population of Swansea and Neath - that's 240,000 plus 46,000, call that 285,000 in round figures.

:D :D :D :D :D


Who paid the £27m for the Liberty to be built? Just wondering


Haven't you heard the latest news? Even the Star had it ...



Tell you what - Search for "Liberty Stadium changing hands" on Google - the piece is 4 years old but you'll get the gist.

So the county council spent the £27m then. Cheers. And the Ospreys didn't have to contribute £9m like the Scarlets.

So just for clarity - the Ospreys had a very big subsidy from the ratepayers' millions. Much bigger than the Scarlets.

Oh and the Scarlets have to pay actual rent, and a commercial rate of interest to CCC, not a "peppercorn rent" like the Swans/Ospreys do.

Not that I'm against councils supporting local businesses of course.

You are unaware of the Swansea soccer bois looking to buy the Liberty?

Perhaps if you scanned the web .....

Yes but it doesn't alter the fact that Ospreys had many more £millions of taxpayers money than Scarlets. You're not disagreeing with that I note.

Or a link to the data?

Thank you ...

PYS cost £25m to build. CCC put in £16m. Scarlets put in £7m from Stradey. CCC lent Scarlets another £2m towards the cost, which Scarlets pay 4% interest on. (So the *Terks* are in for £9m)

Liberty cost £27m to build. Swansea Council put £27m in. Ospreys and SCFC put nothing in.

Ever since the Scarlets stopped whinging and started playing rugby, I've had far more inclination to listen to their fans' opinions.
I'm with you, Wasp; *fupp* the Ospreys. G'wan the *Terks*.

Increased interest from Toulon, reported offer in the pipeline, sticking point ...international absence

Can't see any relief on that front...not with W Cup in sight .....

The parallel offer option for Toulon is Lesgourgues from Bordeaux.

Ex France 9 Galthié the new Toulon Coach is well placed to make the decision....

As the liberty is shared between the O's and Swansea FC, the cost should be cut in half, that then makes the investment £13.5m, so still £2.5m less investment than the scal's.

There's more to a new stadium business case than Council investment?
