Important information for tonight's game - Please read

Tonight will be an incredible experience at AMT Headingley as we come together to celebrate the life of Rob Burrow with a near capacity crowd there to pay their respects to Rob and give his family their support.  

However, we need your help to make sure we can do this as respectfully as possible and ensure everyone is able to make the most of the match night experience at AMT Headingley. 

Get here early 

The biggest assistance you can do is please arrive early. The turnstiles will open at 5pm with the Academy in action against Huddersfield, kick off 5.10pm. Come on down and get to your position or seat early so you know where you need to be. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at tickets.therhinos.co.uk. Leeds Rhinos tickets are available to use on a smartphone or printed out at home as PDF tickets will be sent attached to your confirmation email. Further information on Smartphone / Print @ Home tickets is available by clicking here

If you have a seat ticket, you must sit in the seat that is allocated to your ticket. If you have a terrace ticket, we would ask all supporters to remember that the capacity for the terrace is for the full terrace and not everyone can stand in the middle. Our safety team will direct you to areas that are less busy as the evening goes on, please follow their instruction, it is for the benefit of everyone. 

Be kind to staff and fellow fans

With a bumper crowd, there may be a number of fans who are not used to attending games at the Rhinos or could be new to Rugby League. Please respect and support each other, perhaps if you see someone who looks like they don’t know where to go, ask them if they need any help. Our safety staff are there to help too and we will have extra staff available to assist everyone in getting to where they need to be. 

Respect others in terrace areas

Supporters with tickets for the South Stand Terrace are reminded that the central area entrances will be shut down at least 15-20 minutes (or as instructed by our Ground Safety Officer) prior to kick off of the Men's game and any fans who do not arrive prior to then will be re-directed to the end of the stand to enter the terrace and take position in the available space. To control the movement of fans to these high density areas, we have re-introduced the process of shutting down the central entry points. Any fans who have been positioned in this central area prior to the shutdown and wish to leave to use the toilets or go to the food or drink concessions, will receive a pass out ticket to allow them back into the central area.

Be in your position by 7pm to be part of the night

We would ask all supporters where possible to be in position for 7pm when the tributes to Rob Burrow will begin. This will include interviews with Rob’s former team mates and action on the big screen plus special performances on the pitch for all to enjoy. 

Those in the AMT East seats have a big role to play during player entry as fans are invited to raise the flag on their seats to form a RB7 mosaic during player entry.

Rob’s former team mates will join both sides on the pitch before kick off for a minutes silence. Perhaps if you have young children with you, explain in advance what the minutes silence is for and why we the stadium suddenly falls silent so they are not surprised by it. 

In the seventh minute of the game, just as at Wembley two weeks ago and last week at Hull FC, we will display an image of Rob on the big screen for a minutes applause. 

Remember the ground regulations

We have introduced additional stewards into the area to manage the crowds and ensure all yellow areas are kept clear. Any fans who choose not to comply will be ejected as per the ground regulations which, as a fan, you adhere to upon purchasing a season membership or match ticket. These can be found online https://www.therhinos.co.uk/tickets/ground-regulations/.

If in doubt, ask for help from one of our staff

The safety of our fans is paramount to the club and we do not wish to compromise fan experience. If you have an issue on match day it is always best to flag this up at the time and if you don't feel your feedback has been dealt with then the Customer Experience team are always in the ticket office on match day to help our supporters. It always helps us to help you if we can deal with a matter at the time. 

Use the Fans Phone to help us spot any issues quickly

We would like to remind our fans about the Fans Phone.  The objective of the Fans Phone is to provide a text service for all fans within AMT Headingley Stadium to be able to link directly to our match day control room and notify them of any issues within the stadium.  

The text line number is 07500 312 832 and texts are charged at standard network rate. Please provide as much detail as possible about what is going and your location to allow our stewards to monitor the situation and act where necessary.

The Fans Phone allow you to report any issues anonymously and to ensure our fans don't feel in danger by visibly reporting issues to stewards. Please report issues on match day as it is difficult to manage matters after the event. We understand that it can be intimidating to confront someone whose behaviour you deem is unacceptable and our stewards are there to do that for you.

When you report on the Fans Phone, the person who is creating the issue has no idea that you are texting us, you could just as easily be looking at tweets or texting a friend so please help us to help you. Please however, only use the Fans Phone for real concerns; texts which give untrue or irrelevant information do not help anyone to make things right.
