Wigan-Saints derby a sell out

The Good Friday derby clash between Wigan and St Helens at the DW Stadium is a sell out.

Wigan confirmed that the last few remaining tickets had been sold this morning and the game will be watched by a capacity crowd.

The three highest club attendances in Super League history have all come at the DW Stadium – the record being set as 25,004 on March 25 2005.

Warriors Marketing Director, Simon Collinson said: “It is fantastic news that this traditional Good Friday fixture between Wigan and St Helens is a sell out. It goes without saying that this is the biggest derby in Rugby League and the response from both sets of fans has once again been incredible.

“The crowd befits this massive game and there will undoubtedly be a tremendous atmosphere at the DW Stadium.   Fans are advised to arrive as early as possible with a magnificent line-up of pre-match entertainment organised and set to be announced shortly.”

Meanwhile, Hull have revealed that they are expecting a crowd in excess of 20,000 for their televised derby clash with Hull KR on Thursday evening.

Widnes have also reported good ticket sales for their home game against Warrington on the same night.
