The crowd for next weekend’s #magicfriday fixture against York City Knights continues to grow with local community clubs bringing ever increasing numbers to the 29 May Magic Weekend curtain raiser.
Close to 2000 tickets are in circulation for the 8pm kick off, including those held by the club’s season ticket holders, over 200 hospitality guests and local children taking part in the Sky Try programme.
With the main focus of promotional activities kicking in over the next 10 days, the club is hoping that these efforts will see the Kingston Park West Stand close to capacity for the Kingstone Press League 1 fixture.
Speaking to Thunderrugby.com Managing Director Keith Christie said: “Magic Friday is looking like being our best crowd in years and it is great to see both North East sports fans and Super League supporters coming to join our regular fan base.”
“We had a big crowd for our opening game of the season and we are already past that number for next Friday so I’m looking forward to hearing the enhanced Thunder Army really get behind the lads.
Tickets for the game are priced at £10 for adults, £6 for concessions and £5 for Under 16s if booked before 5pm on Thursday May 28th and can be bought by clicking here calling 0871 226 6060 or visiting the Kingston Park Box Office.
