England Fifth-Tier Side Barnet Chair Confirms Stadium Negotiations With London Broncos
English fifth-tier side Barnet Chair Tony Kleanthous has "held talks" with Super League side London Broncos over the Broncos "moving to The Hive," according to the BBC. The Broncos "announced their intention to leave the Twickenham Stoop in January but the club have not secured a home venue for next season." Kleathous said, "They talk a lot, that is for sure. I don't know whether something will or won't happen. At the moment I can assure you there is no deal. But who knows?" Kleanthous is "eager to make sure the north London facility is utilised as much as possible but has warned it is close to capacity." However, despite being "open to talks with the Broncos, he says they face competition for the space." Kleanthous: "It is them and others. Let's be clear -- it is not unique to them. We have spoken to other people, organizations and other sports that want to get involved here" (BBC, 11/14).
