Rovers welcome national road map plans
Hull Kingston Rovers welcome the news that fans will be able to return to Hull College Craven Park soon.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, confirmed to Parliament his four-part road map for the easing of lockdown restrictions in England.
The 2021 Betfred Super League season is set to kick off behind closed doors at Headingley on 26th March, with fans set to return just over one month later.
Hull KR Chief Executive Paul Lakin welcomed the direction of travel, “We are delighted there is light at the end of the tunnel for everyone associated with the club. Once again our members have stood by us, and we know they’ll be so eager to take their place in their spiritual home soon.
The feedback we’ve received is that the vast majority of members renewed to simply support the club and ensure we are still standing at the end of this. We hope the news that they can return to the terraces to show their physical and vocal support, is the icing on the cake.
We are finalising plans for our own road map of how supporters will return safely within the unlocking of restrictions. A key milestone will be the behind closed doors friendly against Castleford where we will test our covid secure operational plan. We are confident we will be able to deliver the maximum capacity of 4,000 during stage three, however this will not be confirmed until our operational test, and further liaison with the relevant authorities is complete.
Once again, from everyone at the club, thank you for your support over the last 12 months. Your loyalty has ensured we can pull through this together and ensure the club is here for future generations to enjoy. That effort by you all should not be underestimated, and I hope you are rightly proud of what you’ve done collectively as a fan base.”
The club would like to remind members of the following commitments we’ve made to the priority of fans returning to Hull College Craven Park:
- All members who renewed, including Rovers Forever members who automatically renew (and have continued their payments) by December 31st 2020 are in priority pool 1.
- All members who renew by this Saturday (27thFebruary) will be in priority pool 2.
- General sale commences from Monday 1st March – all fans who join or renew from this date will be in priority pool 3.
Further details on stadium capacity, supporter bubbles and the issuing of covid secure digital membership cards will follow in March.Back To Latest News +
