As expected the link between the club and Becketts Uni has been extended for 3 years according to the Offy

Excellent news - interesting to know how much it is worth, though.

At the meet the board presentation it was inferred that the money is significantly less than the previous 1 million p.a. agreement, and that the club was also going to incur costs in meeting their half of the bargain.

Like the 'on the road' initiative, it will do nothing to bring extra fans, or money into the club. If anybody thinks we will be other than a mid table Championship side in the future, I'll have a pint of whatever you are on.



COME ON LEEDS.
We've been through it all together.

Is it worth anything at all?

Absolutely no mention of any money

I think you need to lay off what Headingley drinks hax..

There must be some benefits to the club or why would they sign.

You are probably correct, but I can't see it. It would help if a few of the 28,000 students turned up every now and again.

It mentions access to the uni for club staff and vice versa. But nothing about any sort of financial incentives for Carnegie. Which just makes me wonder if there are any.

Hi Leeming, looking at the time of your post, not sure you have insomnia or, much more likely, you are flying your Typhoon in another time zone to us Carnegie regulars.
Yes Becketts are paying us as name-rights sponsors, but for me the elephant in the room is why "Carnegie"? The stand we sit/stand in is also called Carnegie and the name is embedded in the seats. In reality the Carnegie sporting college is a minor thing in Becketts' repertoire but perhaps a "unique" selling point?

Almo, it hasn't been a selling point, unique or otherwise, since we took it on!

Cheers Almo. You guessed correctly that it's the time zone thing! Although, if I was a Typhoon pilot I could probably sponsor Carnegie myself! I've never had anything to do with the uni's so don't get the Carnegie Beckett thing. So, is it Beckett that pay us to be called Carnegie then?

Might be a good extra in a players contract the option of getting a free degree whilst playing at YC.

Got it.

In that case then we must be benefitting financially. You wouldn't give the naming rights away for nowt.

I'm sure we are, but I would be surprised if it's even a tenth of what we were getting from them before.

Has the name Beckett or Carnegie appeared on the front of the home shirts yet, or am I to assume, that the Club, still, can not attract a main sponsor to put their stamp to the Yorkshire Carnegie brand!

I thought the stadium was going to be known as Emerald Headingley stadium from now on, or is that only the cricket ground?

Both sides of the stadium, from November if memory serves, but not us!

Tykes was a great brand. Can't be having that now can we! Instead we have the non entity that is Carnegie and Yorkshire that the whole world and it's dogs hates.
