Featherstone ready to welcome York and South Wales


Featherstone Rovers‘ Big Fellas Stadium is set to host the York City Knights versus South Wales Scorpions League One game this Friday, May 22.

The game kicks off at 8pm, and Rovers commercial manager Paul Taylor is urging supporters to take advantage of some ticket offers.

Fev season ticket holders can watch the game for £5, if they produce their season ticket booklet and use Voucher B.

“We were more than happy to host the game when we were approached earlier this week,” he said.

“It’s the second time in a month where we have been approached at late notice to stage a fixture at short notice.

“It is testament to all the work that has taken place over the last five years of improving our facilities by everyone that the Big Fella’s Stadium is a suitable venue for hosting non-Featherstone Rovers games.

“Staging such games helps the club grow and helps our sustainability as we grow as business.

“We look forward to welcoming Knights and Scorpions fans to the Big Fella’s Stadium and we hope plenty of Rovers season ticket holders take advantage of this special offer.

“We know many people are going to the Summer Bash but if you’re at a loose end on Friday evening, please come down and see what League One has to offer.”
