Matchday ticketing checks
The club would like to inform supporters of additional matchday ticketing checks that will be introduced during the Super 8s Qualifiers, starting with this Friday’s clash against Salford Red Devils.
Following recent spot checks at the turnstiles on game day, the club has become concerned about the misuse of some tickets and season memberships by a small number of supporters entering the stadium using the wrong price category.
As a result, new measures will be put in place at the remaining four home matches this season to clamp down on any deliberate fraudulent activity and to ensure that all supporters are contributing to the club in a fair way. These measures will involve putting additional checks in place before and after the turnstiles. For more information, click here
