Rugby League fans in the North East are giving their backing to Newcastle Thunder ahead of the 2015 season in every increasing numbers, with the club reporting strong season ticket sales for the new Kingstone Press League 1 season.
Thunder have already sold a third more season tickets than last season a full two months out from the first competitive game of the season, against Barrow Raiders on April 3rd and are hopeful this number will continue to rise in the build up to the start of the campaign, which will see games switch from Gateshead International Stadium to Kingston Park.
Priced at just £99 for adults, £69 for senior citizens and students, Thunder season tickets grant entry to 11 Kingstone Press League 1 fixtures against teams including the Raiders, York City Knights and newly promoted Coventry Bears, as well as the Saturday of the Magic Weekend at St James’ Park.
Super League’s annual jamboree hits the home of Newcastle United on May 30th and 31st and Thunder season ticket holders can enjoy all the day one action, which sees Salford Red Devils v Widnes Vikings, Hull FC v Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos v Wigan Warriors at no additional cost.
Thunder season tickets also offer the chance for families to enjoy a day at an exciting sporting event at a top class venue at a reduced cost with all adult and concession season tickets able to claim up to two free Under 16s tickets. Additional juniors not fitting in with this provision can be added for only £59.
Thunder enjoyed their most competitive season in six years in 2014, making the end of season play offs and with the majority of last year’s squad being retained, with quality additions like Paupa New Guinea internationals Mark Mexico, Jason Tali and Charlie Wabo alongside Craig Boot, Fran Welsh and Dayne Craig.
With a new intake of emerging local talent like Daniel Bleek, Zach Clark, Paddy Hargreaves and Sam Luckley, 2015 promises to provide exciting times for Thunder, get your season ticket now and make sure you don’t miss a minute in a season where every minute counts.
