    A Twitter poll. Wasn't that obvious?

    The guy running the poll was looking for a team to support for the year. He has a big twitter following through his FPL stuff and a very popular blog as well. As soon as he started pushing our Fantasy League last night we saw an uptick in entries. Not huge numbers or anything, but maybe a few hundred quid extra for Harps that isn't coming from the usual sources.

    So we're getting a few quid out of premiership fans and people are taking an interest in us that usually wouldn't. It's not major, but it's all good.

    We've announced our 2019 season ticket packages with a fab promo video. Package revamped slightly with a little gift pack, scarf pen etc. Early bird priced same as this season. Good value. Good to be capitalising on the buzz after the cup win. Our marketing and sales team gets a lot of stick, but they've gotten this one spot on.

    I don't think this was a promotional activity by Bohs per se (I didn't hear about it anyway) but Fontaines D.C. (an up-and-coming indie-punk band) are apparently Bohs fans and did a photoshoot at Dalymount - few pics in this article.

    I've been hearing a bit about these lads lately, they're starting to get a fair bit of traction. Could turn out to be another nice bit of promotion for Bohs, as if they needed it.

    Not sure where to place this exactly, but it's close-ish to this thread, and an interesting read. Regards Larne and their funding, you could see the comparisons to what might have been at Galway.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45930266

    £2 million given so far, "potential" blank cheque being talked about, etc. Huge increase in attendances, that's without being promoted and being a town of 18k (though Carrickfergus is just down the road)
    This all depends on the investor not getting bored and pulling out, mind.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    That's next years 'away' jersey sorted, and they won't even sue us (hopefully)

    "You’d put two or three scenarios on the table. And you’d have to take the [FAI] Cup into account as well — maybe have a one-off two-legged match, not a semi-final, because you’d be going down too far. Uefa aren’t too pushed on having teams too far down the league table coming in to their competitions. At that stage they would feel the weaker teams might come in, because you could win a one-off match."

    It's an old chestnut but I still think it's something that should be trialled, if the clubs warmed to the idea. When the league format was changed, common sense prevailed that a split wasn't brought in at the end of the season.

    3rd, 4th and 5th could enter a three way playoff similar to how the First Division have three teams in the playoffs. If one of the three have taken the Europe spot from the cup, the other two can playoff for the final spot.
    A Championship: 4 years - 8 first teams - 0 financially ruined. First Division '14: 7 first teams.
    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    No. Silly idea considering you're playing off for a spot in the qualifiers, not the actual competition.

    You're playing off for the financial gain those qualifiers bring and the decent attendances the playoffs might garner by LoI standards as well.

    I know all of that, but a load of lads jumping around celebrating behind a Europa League sign because they've qualified for a qualifier would be a big #GreatestLeagueInTheWorld moment.

    Longford handed out 200 kids tickets to school kids and 96 of them were used at the opening game. Fenny and the coaching staff visited 3 schools the other day, club doing great online work too. It's onwards and upwards

    That's a great initial return, particularly if each child was accompanied by a paying adult.

    I have often felt that the real value of these promotions are ignored by a failure to follow up on those who attend to try to get them back again for the next home game.

    For example a pre-match "meet a player" mineral and crisp reception with a further freebie ticket for the next home game, might get child and parent coming back again and in turn help develop the habit, as opposed to it being a "once-off" event

    I saw that 'Fatboy Slim' (Norman Cook) donned a Boh's jersey and apparently had pictures of a Bohs NBB display as part of his show on Saturday night in the 3 Arena / Point. A previous NBB fans display used some of his lyrics and it was brought to his attention. The latest rock n roll addition* to Ireland's coolest club


    * no news yet of next seasons 'away' shirt but......
