Wigan have sold more than 15,000 tickets for next Friday’s clash with Leeds at the JJB Stadium, a game they are dubbing “the Big One”.
The Warriors have already ecliped their previous two crowds at home against the Rhinos (14,911 and 14,778 last season) and with ten days to go they look set to break the record for this game at the JJB Stadium – 17,281 in 2006.
Chief Executive Mick Hogan said: “Since announcing sales of 14,000 at our last home game on Friday, tickets for the Big One are flying out and we have done over 1,000 in under three days. Leeds are also reporting brisk trade as they aim to fill the North Stand.
“All four stands are starting to fill out and fans are reminded that the best seats are sold on a first come, first served basis, so they are encouraged to pre-purchase their tickets to ensure they get their preferred seats.
“Furthermore, less than 1,000 tickets remain for the unreserved South Stand and we don’t expect many, if any, tickets to be available in this stand on the night.”
Tickets are available priced at just £10 for adults and £5 for concessions anywhere in the stadium and these can be purchased from the JJB Stadium Ticket Office, Ticket Hotline on 0871 66-33-552 and online at wiganwarriors.com/etickets
