Rhinos looking forward to welcoming fans back to Emerald Headingley
Leeds Rhinos are looking forward to welcoming capacity crowds back to Emerald Headingley starting with their Betfred Super League clash with Salford Red Devils on Friday 23rd July.
The game will be one of the first sporting events in the country to be played after the lifting of Covid restrictions in England just four days earlier on 19th July.
The Rhinos will play their third home game with restricted crowds this Friday against league leaders Catalans Dragons, with capacity restricted to just 4,000 home fans, all of which are Rhinos members.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson will confirm plans for Step 4 of the Government’s Roadmap out of lockdown at a press conference on Monday 12th July. Once this has been confirmed, match tickets for Leeds Rhinos game against Salford Red Devils will go on sale on Monday evening. There will also be a 5 game season membership for fans to purchase which will cover all the remaining home games in the 2021 season and a 3 game flexi pack membership which will go on sale at the same time.
Rhinos 2021 Season Members can return to their usual positions from the 23rd July home game and for the first time in 2021, be able to use their season membership cards to gain access to Emerald Headingley. We will be in touch shortly with our current 2021 Season and Flexi pack members to provide options surrounding credit for matches they have been unable to see during the earlier part of the season.
Commenting on the return of crowds, Leeds Rhinos captain Luke Gale said, “As a team, we can not wait to see Emerald Headingley full again for the first time in over a year. The atmosphere has been great in recent weeks with the restricted crowds but having nearly 20,000 fans at games again will be incredible.”
