First I've heard of a family fun day, is this from the pre-season thing in Hillsborough park?

 

Good on Mr.C anyway though, he always comes across as a very respectable chap.

SWFC the commercial nightmare!!

 

Why didn’t they make any cash? Tight fisted locals? WTF:

Lovely gesture.

 

On another note, any event with any combination of the words 'family', 'fun' and 'day' sounds horrific. 

I went and thought it was good. Quite quiet but not surprising, not really a thing you could spend a full day at. Players just casually walking around the stadium, joining in with the kids playing football, allowing photos or talking to them, playing Fifa. Really nice thing to do and something DC doesn't have to allow because it will cost him a fair bit of money for the staff needed.

 

As for the sellers, think they was poorly placed tbh. They was under the south stand where no foot traffic was going, everything was going on between the club shop and in to the ground

 

Nice gesture from DC refunding

Yeah..... trying to arrange something fun during the school holidays to try and get the next generation interested in Sheffield Wednesday.

 

What an "horrific" thought :blink:

Great gesture from DC, well done. 

 

Question needs to be asked though, why wasn’t it a success.

 

I hadn’t heard the event was happening, where was it advertised?

It was just a joke mate, to a single/childless guy the idea of a 'family fun day' sends a chill down my spine, but obviously I'm not the target market. Wasn't a criticism at all, just a joke.

There could be reason for it but why was the fun day not arrange for this Saturday which is Easter for everyone, we also do not have a game as we play Good Friday and Monday.

 

I think they did the same thing last year and choice a day when most of the local kids not in Sheffield were still in classes. 

 

Your can have the best ideas in the world but if you don't pick the day everyone can come, get the weather, or tell anyone it is happening a few months in advance, people simply won't turn up.

Took on board that some couldn’t attend last year because the holidays were different depending on where you lived. This year does it on a weekend and still people moan

 

We didn’t go this year as the lad had a game but I ain’t going to cry about it.

 

From what I’ve heard though it was better than last year so we’ll done Wednesday and we’ll done DC on the OP

I knew about this event. It was all over social media. Not sure if I got an email about it though as I generally don't read generic marketing emails.

And I've just seen it on Facebook again (I know it's past the date, but still.

 

Don't know what else could be done?

 

Would be interested to know how successful it was though, baring in mind that owls in the park is always a success.
