    Needs to be freshened up!
    Pre-match and after for the Dragons and Newport. Club house supporters numbers are dropping off. The large tables don’t help(get rid)! Considering the amount of beer the stadium goes through we should be able to at the least match others in the area for price and quality. Get the club house used more! Pub games! Pub teams! Entice people in with good offers! Etc etc
    At the stadium! Beer is so inconsistent! Last Friday couldn’t get a cider at half time? Long queues at most bars, is lost profits! Needs to be sorted! If not get Wetherspoons to run the bars! Revamp them as they see fit! I think they would jump at the chance"

New Rodney Parade CEO meets with supporters representatives

First published in Friends of Newport Rugby by

Rodney Parade Ltd, The Newport Gwent Dragons and Newport RFC have a new interim CEO. Chris Brown comes from an industrial background and has an excellent track record of working with companies to increase their profitability.

In his first month in Newport, Chris has made a very positive impression on the staff at RP and has thrown himself into the role. He has been extremely active in seeking the views and opinions of all those involved in the teams and the commercial activities and has met with both Kev Jarvis (Secretary of Friends of Newport Rugby) and also the full FoNR committee. He has a keen passion for listening to supporters views.

Chris has a remit to increase all revenue streams at Rodney Parade and although the Dragons provide a large slice of this he is keen to maximise the Newport RFC portion by increasing supporter numbers at games and increasing hospitality and advertising income associated with the Black & Ambers.

It won’t be an easy task but everyone involved with FoNR who has met Chris has been extremely impressed with his professionalism, ideas, commitment and enthusiasm. We look forward to working closely with him throughout the summer months to prepare for the 2012/13 season. The picture depicts Chris with some of the FoNR committee: Back Row: Mike Frost (Fundraising), Kris Jeremy, Dave Tingey (Media) & Joe Crocker (Youth) Front Row: Dave Griffiths (Chairman), Chris Brown (RP Ltd CEO) & Nick Jackson (Community)
