Season ticket offer is just the Cup ticket
Fans of Engage Super League clubs are expected to turn out in record numbers next weekend when the sport’s elite clubs enter the Carnegie Challenge Cup at the fourth round stage.
Season ticket holders at the 14 Engage Super League clubs can gain free admission to their own club’s fourth round tie and some bumper attendances are anticipated for the sport’s oldest and most prestigious knockout competition.
There has already been massive interest in the two televised ties, Hull FC v Leeds Rhinos which will be screened live on BBC1 on Saturday April 17 (2.30) and Huddersfield Giants v Hull Kingston Rovers, which will be shown live on BBC2 on Sunday (1.45).
Hull FC and Leeds have around 18,000 season ticket holders between them and the Rhinos are urging their supporters to turn out en mass at the KC Stadium to roar them on as they bid to reach Wembley for the first time since 1999.
Hull Kingston Rovers, who last played in a Challenge Cup final in 1986, have enjoyed sizeable travelling support in recent years and the Robins are hoping for a sizeable contingent of Robins fans to make the trip to the Galpharm Stadium for their eagerly-anticipated tie.
Interest in all the other ties is also running high, not just among season ticket holders, and many clubs are experiencing brisk business at the Ticket Office.
