Rugby Club Barnet Boss Says Club Would Benefit From London Broncos Ground Share
London 3 North West side Barnet FC Chair Tony Kleanthous said that his club "could form a long-term partnership" with Super League club London Broncos, according to the BBC. The Broncos, who finished 13th in Super League last season, "have agreed a two-year deal" to play at The Hive, a 5,000-seat stadium in Canons Park. Kleanthous said, "If we find out that we get on well and things are good then we can grow together." The deal with Barnet "saved the Broncos from the threat of administration and secured a new home after their eight-year stay at Twickenham Stoop, the home of rugby union club Harlequins." Kleanthous also said that the possibility of him taking ownership of the Broncos "had arisen during negotiations -- but that eventuality was far off." Kleanthous said, "We have talked about all those kind of things. I am not ready at the moment" (BBC, 12/20).
