“Most decisive derby in recent history”, says KR chief executive

After smashing their 2011 attendance record for a home derby in Super League, Hull KR are targeting a complete sell-out for this Friday’s game against Hull FC.

The Robins’ cross-city clash will be the best-attended at the KC Lightstream Stadium since they returned to Super League, and chief executive Mike Smith says it’s understandable why so many fans are keen to attend.  Over 10,250 tickets have been sold – eclipsing the figure for the game between the sides in 2011.

“Friday night is all or nothing for us so it will be the most decisive Derby in recent history,” he said. “Not only are the 2015 bragging rights up for grabs but more importantly two vital league points.”

“Hull FC away sales are really starting to pick up now so it would be fantastic to get the sold out signs up.  Our advice is – if you want to come to the game – to get your ticket now or face possible disappointment.”

“We are delighted that we have have already broken our attendance record for a home derby in the Super League era, and we are confident that all home areas of the stadium will be sold out prior to Friday’s match.

“Having broken the stadium attendance record for the last two years in a row, we are going all out for this game to top the current record, which was set in February against Leeds Rhinos.”
