Does anyone have, or have they seen, a definitive list of this year's ST benefits?

Having renewed on Friday I thought I would have a look for it but cannot find it anywhere on the Club's site. The email I got about renewals / pre-sales (unhelpfully received 3 days after I renewed) doesn't shed any light and the "alwaysedinburgh.org" link at the foot of the email (promisingly billed as where I could find out what to expect next season with a unique login) doesn't work, and takes you to a generic MS Windows Server page. :roll:

It's definitely a good deal, the club is doing pretty much all it can.

- Holding down ST prices, free entry for U16s to varying degrees (many thanks to a fellow posted who DM's to confirm I could get a refund for the U16 ST I'd somehow mistakenly bought - club refunded no questions asked
- Performances on the pitch, totally different attitude and culture
- Investment in new 'home' for 2019/20
- Increasing quality in the playing squad in a tough market

As has been said before, it's really over to the Edinburgh and region rugby public to back this with bums on seats. I think sufficient progress has been made that Cockers et al are entitled to expect a bounce in attendances and support (not the same thing).

The differential between GW and ER ST prices is indicative of where we are in terms of fan base - Edinburgh can only be considered a success on and off the pitch at the point of ST price equalisation between the two. That won't happen overnight, and there's an element of turkeys voting for Christmas, but ultimately it's what we all want isn't it?

Thanks everyone. It's an excellent deal. Great value.

Looks like the car parking has been removed (unless omitted in error?). No big one for me but could be an issue for those coming in from out of town who arrive late to evening games. We have 4 more signed up to our group for this season. Hopefully the efforts on and off the pitch will grow this years regular fan base and retire "the library".

Availability of car parking perhaps comprised by any works/access that will be going on for the new ground.

I would assume that in its absence there will be free parking at Myreside with complimentary bus to Murrayfield :evil:

Am I missing something?
What’s the imperative for Silver STs to renew in the “exclusive” window?
I get that Gold get to choose the best seats, but what’s in it for me to renew before August?

I don't think anything other than the direct debit option.

As a silver member I thought about upgrading to Gold this season (decided against it) as I assume the new stadium will not have standing and current Gold will have the chance to pick seats first for 2019/20

I see Mark Palmer from the times has tweeted on the back of European Rugby saying the Heidelberg ruling is being based on maintaining the “integrity of the game” if the Pro14 will review Edinburghs extra “home” game. Assume Welsh teams sort of have a similar issue with their judgement day although Cardiff don’t actually play in the millennium stadium.

Bit clumsy all round but always likely with the conference system. I am trying to think of how the scheduling could work but perhaps something like Rugby Leagues Magic weekend, where all teams play at a neutral ground over a weekend, could that leave all teams with 10 home games plus the neutral venue, assuming the neutral ground is not Edinburgh, Cardiff, Dublin etc a nice wee trip to watch rugby somewhere sunny is always nice.
