Hull FC chairman Adam Pearson gives financial update and stadium latest

Hull FC are in somewhat of a quandary at present.

Following another disappointing season in which they finished outside of the play-offs for the second year in a row under Brett Hodgson, changes have been made.

Hodgson has left the club with chairman Adam Pearson determined to take Hull in a different direction – that direction has seen Tony Smith sign on the dotted line in a bid to lead a resurgence of a sleeping giant.

For Pearson himself, however, the club is now at a ‘crossroads’ with some positive news off the field, too.

“The club is at a crossroads post Covid,” Pearson told BBC Radio Humberside.

“We are trying to recover and build back from there and it’s a long process.

“We’ve lost a significant number of supporters during Covid but those who have stood by us since then have been massively loyal.

“The club is on a far sounder footing than a year ago and we have had some breakthroughs.

“Our relationship with the new owners of Hull City FC is positive and strong which is a real benefit to use and will hopefully allow us to make this stadium a good place to come and enjoy rugby league again.”

With the appointment of Tony Smith, Hull fans are expecting that good feeling to return in droves having watched their bitter cross-city rivals finish above them in 2022.
