Its also a big risk for the club financially. May make us more if it works but may cost us loads.
Inevitably T20 members will be way down so on a T20 match id guess the split of payers and members easily a swing of 1000/1500 to on day payers.

On the plus side on the day payers more likely to turn up if paying £35/40 AND this type of punter more likely to spend £25+ on booze&food.

On the negative side on day payers are entitled to FULL refunds i believe? So rain scupper us!
Previously members paid upfront and tough if it rained, we had their monies.
Games can be insured but no way near extent to profit a T20 day makes.

It will be very different experience & interesting to see how it all unfolds.....
