Leeds Rhinos face a massive Betfred Super League clash with Huddersfield Giants on Friday 2nd August at John Smith’s Stadium and the club are urging supporters to be there to give the players their support with the biggest away following of the season. 

To encourage supporters to make the short trip to Huddersfield, the Rhinos are handing back to fans the commission the club will receive from the Giants for every fan that purchases a ticket in advance of the game.

Across the Betfred Super League, away clubs get 25% commission on every ticket they sell for away games and the Rhinos will return that to every fan who pre-purchases in the form of a match credit they can spend on future games either at Emerald Headingley or on the road.  All fans who purchase advance tickets for the Giants away match will be credited 25% of their ticket price to put towards future tickets, travel and even 2020 Season Memberships. The Rhinos allocation is for the The Abzorb Stand which is unreserved seating at one end.

Match credits will be added to fans accounts after the Giants match has taken place and credits are valid until 31st December 2019. Match credits will be allocated to the account of the person who has ordered the tickets.

Leeds Rhinos Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield commented, “Down the years, our visits to the John Smith’s Stadium have produced some of the most memorable games. Whether that is Challenge Cup semi finals or the incredible match to win the League Leaders Shield in 2015. I know on each of those occasions how much it has meant to the team to run out and see so many of our fans there, it has been like a home game for us. Our match in August is massive for both teams as we look to climb the table and it would be great to see as many supporters there as possible. I think this is a great gesture by the club to encourage fans to get along and I hope everyone can take advantage of it.”
