Capital Challenge on course to break records
London Skolars traditional January Capital Challenge event at Honourable Artillery Company’s grounds in the City of London is well on course to break records for ticket sales and attendees at the pre-match luncheon.
On the 24th January Skolars will host a Wigan Warriors XIII at the prestigious London venue and match ticket sales have already surpassed the previous highest figure for Capital Challenge matches against London Broncos.
Commenting on ticket sales London Skolars General Manager Howard Kramer had this to say: “Whilst we were disppointed by London Broncos not being able to take part in our annual Capital Challenge match in 2014 we were delighted that Wigan agreed to step in and bring a team down to play us. Ticket sales for the match have been steady since the game was announced but in the past week we have seen a real acceleration in sales and we are already some way ahead of our record pre-sales, which were achieved last year. Match tickets, priced at £15, can still be purchased from our online ticket office at www.skolarsrl.com”.
In addition to the match Skolars will once again host a pre-match luncheon in the Prince Consort Room at the HAC and guests will be treated to two legendary guest speakers in Jamie Peacock MBE and Martin Offiah MBE. Sales of lunch places have also been brisk, according to Kramer: “With Wigan in town with the Challenge Cup and Super League trophies on display and with two great guest speakers I am not surprised that last year’s record attendance at the Capital Challenge is well on course to be broken. Tables and places at the luncheon have been selling steadily and we have almost surpassed last year’s numbers with more sales expected in the next two weeks. I would urge anyone thinking of attending this great event to book now”.
