The price is also the same as opponent Workington Town charge their fans for Betfred League One matches to encourage the Town fans to travel down and support their side. Concession prices for Senior Citizens 65 & over, Students, Under 21 and Disabled will be £10. All seat tickets will be £20 for Adults, £15 for Concessions and free for juniors (all juniors must claim a ticket to be able to access the ground on match day).
The Rhinos will be opening both seated and standing areas in the new look Tetley’s South Stand and seats and terracing in the Extentia Stand for this game. The North Stand and Western Terrace will not be open for this match.
Tickets will go on sale to all fans at 9am on Thursday 4th April and Leeds Rhinos seat members will have until 9am on Monday 8th April to book their reserved seats for the game before any unsold seats will be made available on general sale.
Commenting on the match Head Coach Dave Furner said, “It is good for us that we are at home at Emerald Headingley. I hope as many fans as possible to get down for the event, it is great that the club are encouraging young fans to come and experience the Challenge Cup and hopefully we can put on a night they can enjoy.”
