Ireland's bid for 2023 World Cup - venues announced + Gov. underwriting 320m

Post by Sin é on Tue Aug 09, 2016 7:54 am

First topic message reminder :

Venues announced and both Govs underwriting cost.


http://www.irishexaminer.com/ireland/government-to-underwrite-320m-in-bid-for-2023-rugby-world-cup-414609.html


Croke Park, The Aviva stadium, RDS in Dublin; (3)
Casement Park and Kingspan Stadium in Belfast (2)
Pairc Uí Chaoimh in Cork;

These include Croke Park, the Aviva Stadium and the RDS in Dublin;
Casement Park and Kingspan Stadium in Belfast;
Pairc Uí Chaoimh in Cork;
Thomond Park, Limerick;
Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney;
Pearse Stadium, Galway;
McHale Park in Castlebar;
Nowlan Park, Kilkenny;
and Celtic Park in Derry.

Great to see how evenly spread around the island (Derry & Kilkenny for example).

The operational costs for redeveloping some of these venues and bringing them up to standards and sizes for the tournament is estimated to cost in the region of €60m.

I think we have a good chance.

Dont get the analogy. Are you saying Ireland's beauty is fake?

Take a trip along the west coast of Ireland. The scenery will blow your mind.

So Craggy Island is one of the porpossed venues then?

France are formally in the running but you would get long odds at the bookies.

Casement is a long way from being certain.

Direct Rule = No money for Casement and there is a time limit on when it must be spent otherwise it will be null and void.

The latest submission is 34k and involves exits out to local streets on the far side - totally inappropriate in my opinion.
Safety still a concern unless we get down to 25k or so.

I thought he was referring to all those palm trees you get down the west coast?

I'm saying it's harder to justify the required mock surprise of taking an exotic vacation with the missus that coincidentally happens to be in the same location as RWC when it's in fecking Ireland. Is what 'oim saying' to be sure. Carmarthen would be easy.

When is the actual vote? We got New Zealand onside I think. I think it's safe to say we lost Wales a month or so ago.

I have the Bribery suitcase here, waiting for me to be told where to fly to next. Wink

November - after the AIs.

There's a big party planned in WR HQ - for the losers.
The winners will be in Cardiff negotiating use of the Millennium for all the pool stage matches.

France will be our biggest challenger, methinks. SA is a bit of a basket case right now, and not just the rugby. Doubt WR will want to take the risk.
France are not without their own problems, though, and they have hosted it before. I guess it all comes down to how impressed WR are with the Ireland bid.

Or if WR want o go on a month long jolly, having it on their doorstep may get in the way of that

There is always that, marty, although their heads will roll if it all goes wrong in SA.

Because old boy Ireland don't have the money to fund a RWC, therefore the fans will have to dig deep to buy tickets or the poor Country after that RWC will have to foot the bill like England did to cover the books for the poorly attended 2011 RWC.

France all the way for me.

Since when did Ireland not have the money?

And why did England have 'cover the books'(whatever that means) for the 2011 RWC?

Please choose from the following:

a) Because Scotland beat Italy and he's very sore about it.
b) Because Ireland won the Millennium Cup.
c) Because France won.
d) He missed Sunday service.
e) He didn't get his two boiled eggs for breakfast on Saturday morning. With soldiers.

So remind me again, what country had the top attendance against a minnow at the last world cup?

Also, which country did the RFU screw on the price of tickets?

Yeah. I think World Rugby will be intent on keeping touted tickets out of the hands of English hospitality company THG Sports.

That's why you should only use official agencies (or one of your mates on the council).

Look I got my tickets already - so I don't care about any of the rest of you.  They're only 15,000 bucks apiece and I have all the pool games and the Final between Italy and Ireland.

The rest of you can scrounge around for whatever scraps you can find - I got my corporate cucumber sandwich box booked, so I'm set OK
