A near 32,000 sell out against Leicester Tigers today at the Ricoh Arena, with a good away following. Wasps were very slow coming out the blocks against a vastly improved Tigers side today and lost to a very stubborn Tigers side 21-26 who play the rules to the limit. I believe Wasps have doubled their home attendances since moving there to around 15/16,000
Also incredibly raised the £35m they paid to buy the Ricoh by issuing a bond paying 6% interest in this week just over 6 months after they moved in. Meanwhile, years down the line, we're fighting Sainsbury's in court to pay a similar amount for the UWE.
