Leeds set for record crowd against Wigan

Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors fans are set to create the biggest attendance of the Super League season so far when the sides meet tonight at Headingley.

With the South Stand and Carnegie Stand terrace already sold out, Leeds are also looking likely to set a club record Super League crowd at the game.

The record attendance in Super League at Headingley Carnegie for a game against Wigan is 18,769, which was set back in 2008.

Any fans who do not yet have tickets for the game can pay on the night at the turnstiles for entry to the Western Terrace, with gates opening at 5pm.

There is also a programme of Irish-themed entertainment in store from 5pm, with Irish music from Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, as well as an Irish dancing display, among the events on offer.

“The game against Wigan is always a fixture that fans circle on the fixture calendar as a ‘must see’ match,” Leeds’ head of marketing Abigail Furniss said.

“It would be a tremendous message to send out if we can break our Super League record against Wigan.

“Wigan have already sold over 1,000 tickets so it will be a great atmosphere. We have been contacted by a number of fans who are coming for the first time to see a Super League game which highlights the appeal of a Leeds v Wigan clash.”
