“This was a stadium built for both clubs and for the community, not one dictatorship of an owner” – how social media reacted to Hull having to close part of their stadium

Hull FC will not be able to open the West Stand Upper tier for the Hull derby, the club revealed yesterday.

That’s down to the fact that there is a lack of casual match day personnel required to staff both catering and stewarding operations in what will be the biggest game of both sides’ seasons so far.

But, in what is probably one of the most anticipated derby games for a while, social media has reacted quite sharply to the news.

One Hull FC fan called it “a mess”.

That sentiment of getting the Member of Parliament for Kingston-upon-Hull and Hessle involved was echoed by others.

Another called the decision by the Stadium Management Company (SMC) to release the news now too late.

The SMC also came under fire from others.

Someone felt that football wouldn’t have been treated the same way.

Another believed that section of the ground wouldn’t have been open anyway due to attendance issues.

Another called for the SMC to step up.

Another called it a “joke”.

A Castleford fan waded into the argument.

One Toronto fan believed the atmosphere wouldn’t be affected anyway.

Another bemoaned the excuse given by the SMC.
