It would not have been hard to put the security between one pitch and the rest of the facility to allow people to attend some games. We ought to be able to see the future of the club playing more often. In fact I think Cat 1 academies should be required to make more games accessible.
Having said that, the games I attend weekly, it is just a case of walking in there, often signing a sheet, no other checks are carried out.
Reading through the planning documents, it sounds like access to the opposition teams, fans etc will be slightly easier at Bearwood. There's a separate entrance, parking, security lodge and café to the north of the site, plus their own dressing room.
RFC players and staff will use the south lodge entrance and looking at the plans all the sensitive areas will be well away from the 'away' zone. That said the first team pitch with undersoil heating, where they did the unveiling last week, is pretty visible from Mole (or indeed Elland) Road.
That's certainly a different way of doing things. All over academies are one way in one way out. Anyone know of plans for a dome to be going in? That to me is what appears to be missing. The ones at Southampton, Spurs, Chelsea are world class. Certainly the younger kids need this facility.
