Re: Brentford - The proposed stadium changes

Sale rugby, located in the Greater Manchester conurbation, population 2.5M gets crowds of 5-6K.
Wasps, only just in the Greater Birmingham conurbation,population 3M+, gets crowds of 12-14K and sometimes 18-20K.

The best team in the AP, Sarries moved to North London, overall catchment 12M+ but do not get huge crowds. What 10K? and only rarely do they extend the stands to take 15K.

Exeter, local population max 500K, crowds 8K-9K but down from previous years.

No local Union competition for each. Two long established the other two movers. All the above own their own stadia AFAIK.

I can't conclude that a move is in any way beneficial to crowd numbers. (Sm147)
