Dewsbury Rams can announce the following
Dewsbury Rams home fixture on Sunday 21st June between Dewsbury and Bradford will be hosted at the Emerald Headingley Stadium the home of the Leeds Rhinos, in the form of a double header along with Leeds Rhinos vs Wakefield Trinity.
Dewsbury season ticket holders will be admitted for free as this is one of their season ticket home ties. Dewsbury will also provide free busses for all Dewsbury fans whether a season ticket holder or not who wish to take advantage of this offer.
We would like to thank Leeds Rhinos for the favourable gate share arrangement they have proposed to the Rams.
The management and coaching staff think this is a great opportunity to play at a Super League stadium in what is likely to be a large attendance and it gives an opportunity for many of our younger players to perform at one of the great venues in Rugby League. It is of the upmost importance for Dewsbury as a Championship side to take an opportunity to link up with our friends in Super League.
We are sure it will be a great day out with two games for the price of one.
Leeds Rhinos Head of Marketing Matt Adams said: “This will be a great enhancement to our annual family day activities on the 21st June. With a number of peripheral activities already booked for children and parents alike the addition of a BetFred Championship fixture between local rivals Dewsbury and Bradford will not only be an exciting spectacle but also add value to our Members, which I’m sure will be greatly received.
We can promise a warm Emerald Headingley welcome for all the fans from Dewsbury and Bradford and hopefully two great games for the price of one.”
A Bradford Bulls Spokesperson added: “We fully support the decision for Leeds Rhinos’ Emerald Headingley Stadium to host our away fixture against Dewsbury Rams in what promises to be a fantastic afternoon of action on and off the field.
“As a club we have had many memorable trips to the home of the Rhinos and we look forward to doing battle with Dewsbury there ahead of the Super League clash between Leeds and Wakefield Trinity.
“We know our loyal army of supporters will relish this fixture and a chance for the Bradford Bulls to play on the Super League stage once again and we are convinced they will bring the noise and make it an afternoon to remember.”
