Koukash class act!

Recommended Posts

Marwan Koukash announced at 6pm that the entrance for Salford - Catalans this friday will be "free priced", every penny will go to a donation for the victims of the terrorist act. 

A minute of applause will also be held at the 22nd minute of the game.

Lovely gesture. I know hes not everyones cup of tea but he is a genuinely good guy Marwan. And whilst I'm sure its not his intention it could be very good for future crowds. If they get a full house (or something close) and Salford can put on a show.

A fine decision.

Good stuff. Would be nice to think this will get some wider publicity and the folk of Salford/Manchester will get down there, enjoy the game and raise a lot of money for a good cause.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Lovely gesture.  Hope it raises plenty.

Are donations been taken online or just at the game?

Maybe not through Salford, which is geared around people turning up on the day. Of course, there will be plenty of other avenues for online giving.

Great gesture.

Can't help but think that if the 'other mob' had done it, it'd be all over the media by now.

Agree, at least it was on Sky Sports News

Find MK sometimes an irritation and at others an amusement but on this occasion have nothing but respect for his gesture.

...or the Halle Orchestra; I used to know the lead bassoonist many, many years ago!

Fine gesture by MK!
