Hull KR welcome X-Factor star


Hull KR will welcome X Factor star Olly Murs to their opening Super League XV fixture against Salford at Craven Park.

The 25-year old from Essex will entertain the crowd prior to the big kick-off at 3pm on Sunday 7th February with some of the performances that saw him narrowly miss out on the X Factor title at Christmas.

Olly first came to the public’s attention last summer as he wowed the judges with his rendition of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’, sailing through the audition process and into the live finals where his all-singing, all-dancing performances won him millions of fans throughout the country.

Now he will sing and dance his way onto the Craven Park pitch to entertain what is sure to be a bumper crowd before Justin Morgan’s men take to the field against the Reds as the eagerly anticipated Super League XV campaign gets underway.

As well as his pre-match set there will be a public signing session where supporters will have the opportunity to see Olly and get his autograph.

Ticket prices start at just £18 for adults, £12 for concessions and £9 for juniors in ground standing.

Seated tickets are priced at £21 for adults, £14 for concessions and £9 for juniors.
