Advertising on the Grandstand

Even though the Grandstand is in a sorry state at this point in time, it's nice to see some of the original Leitch features on the front of the stand now that the advertising hoardings (including the old Pasoti one) have been removed. It would look so much better if, once work is complete on that façade (or whatever the correct term for it is) it is spruced up a bit and left advertisement free. I would much rather that the name of the Grandstand was sponsored than put more hoardings there.

Totally agree it would look fantastic if painted green and black and left.

However the revenue that will now bring (with the gantry opposite) will go through the roof.

Because the camera gantry has changed to the Lyndhurst side the club would receive some good sized money for having advertising hoardings on the grandstand and it would be silly to turn it down.

Wouldn't that be negated, as least partially, by the hoardings currently on the Lyndhurst not now being visible to the cameras?

Agree completely about highlighting the detail of the Leitch design. Unfortunately though I don't see how we can have both.

Not convinced that the new camera position makes much of a difference. I just re-watched the highlights of the Stevenage game and the gantry area wasn't visible on screen once. I agree that there would be some loss of income from not having the hoardings there but it would be a real shame to cover it back up again.

I’m with you all the way, Herts Green. It’s an iconic feature of the Leitch design that has gradually been lost to the modern era, Everton being the stand-out example of resisting temptation. Sadly, money rules the world now - hey, let’s put adverts on Smeations Tower while we’re about it.

That camera angle was particularly zoomed in though, probably because it was relatively amateur given the amount of games recorded that weekend.

A normal fixed television angle would take in the previous gantry area, I think.

I made the same point about the positioning of advertising hoarding about 5 months ago. The mix in presentation of each different advertising, will quickly remove the slickness of the aesthetic appeal of the new stand, I would rather they were kept at fence level or used as part of those moving digital signs that were last brought in for the Liverpool Cup replay at Home Park.

Interesting to see the highlights from yesterday's game. Good quality coverage but apart from a fleeting glimpse of the very end of the balcony at the start, at no stage was it in view.

I was thinking that Steve.

Perhaps though the club has asked to keep the cameras at a certain angle, so as not to show the 'mess'. Just a thought.

Same meat different gravy Jon. :greensmile:

The answer is the same, it's artificially low, and won't be the view when our wonderful old girl has been returned and will be shown off at her very best.

Perhaps we can install video screens/advertising? That seems to be the standard now, even below the Premier League.

Jon will probably correct me, but I would assume all new build stadiums and stands now have electronic advertising boards as standard.

One electronic advertising board can show many adverts.

One static hoarding shows only one advert and of course one payment.

Why bring ‘up the line’ into the discussion?
All he wants to do is sack the manager.
