Scorpions launch unique ticket campaign


South Wales Scorpions have launched “500 Tickets for a Fiver Day”, a unique campaign where fans, old and new alike, can buy tickets for their first competitive home match of the season for a bargain price.

The match is against former Super League side Oldham Roughyeds on Sunday 19th February 2012 at The Gnoll in Neath and kicks off at 3pm.

For 24 hours only, the Scorpions will be selling adult and concession match tickets at just £5, heavily reduced from £12 and £7 respectively.

The opportunity to buy takes place between 4pm on Tuesday 8th February to 4pm on Wednesday 9th February 2012 and only via

There will be an option to buy child tickets alongside this offer for the regular price of £3 for those aged between 12 and 16 and free (online charge of 1p) for those aged 11 and under.

There is no limit as to how many tickets anyone can buy but there are only 500 tickets available with this offer so once they’re gone, they’re gone. Once bought, All tickets will be available from the reception desk at the club house for collection on the day of the game.

Scorpions chairman Phil Davies said: “We are pleased to launch ‘500 Tickets for a Fiver’ and we hope that it will encourage more fans to attend our first competitive home match of the season, so if you’ve thought about going to watch us at The Gnoll and haven’t yet given us a try then now is your chance.

“We will take orders from home or away fans. We are told that Oldham are good travellers but we know cost is often an issue. We hope that this campaign will also help the Oldham fans to travel in larger numbers.

“We are now very much looking forward to the new season and we’d like to thank all the media organisations who have already come on board to help us promote this campaign. Hopefully it will have a good response and we’ll see a good crowd for the Oldham game at The Gnoll on Sunday 19th February.”
