The Red Devils Parachute Regiment Freefall Team will be joining us at Emerald Headingley for our annual Armed Forces Day game on Friday 13th July, as the Rhinos take on Wakefield Trinity in the Betfred Super League, kick off 7.45pm.

Formed in 1964, the Red Devils are the official parachute display team of the British Army and The Parachute Regiment and will be entertaining Rhinos fans with spectacular parachute jumps into Emerald Headingley in the build up to the big game, landing on the pitch just minutes before kick off ready to welcome the teams.

The team of professional skydivers is made up of 15 full time serving paratroopers and perform over 350 tandem parachute descents and 60 public displays each year in the UK, including charity, military and sporting events.

The Red Devils first partnered up with Leeds Rhinos last year to entertain crowds with a parachute display at the Leigh Centurions fixture back in June 2017.
