And if a club has already bought advance train tickets to their away game at OEs - say £3000 worth in a particular case - all non refundable, who compensates them?

What do you do when a game is postponed?

No change from BBC for this season. They show OE'S fixture v Caldy next Saturday.

There is RFU funding for clubs that suffer losses due to postponed matches.

Dream on - they withdrew before the season, so I suspect the fixture doesn't exist -so no compensation.

That may well be true, the problem with booking train tickets is two fold , If you leave it late to book there is very little discount , the best time is 12 weeks before you intend to travel to get the maximum. Also if you leave it late there could be a possibility of not getting seating together. In the case of traveling to OE's for 4th September they did not withdraw until one month before when all the tickets had been purchased.

You can take out insurance on tickets which fully refunds the cost if you cannot use them

Probably a bit too late for that though

Rabbie, that may be, but for a game where Club had 2k plus people as a gate and are rumoured to have taken over £50k through lunch, bar, food stalls etc in the Dec 2019 game (last time clubs played), I thought the departure of OEs would have hurt Blackheath more than most, to turn away that amount of income and you will not be able to claim that back! 


May I suggest that this may have been very short sighted by some, or were they becoming a little more than a noisy neighbour and the loss of income was just a small price to pay?

Scrum time I did speak about this earlier in the thread it’s a big hit but nothing we can do about it so no point in worrying about it. Not sure what you are inferring about OEs demise but it’s not that we have turned it away they have withdrawn from the league

Raider The insurance on tickets is taken out when purchased and the buyer needs to take a view at the time as to the likelihood of there being a problem with the game for example DMP in January pay the premium Leeds in October probably not but it is a gamble
