Enjoy Tigers friendly in style this January.

Newcastle Thunder will be hosting hospitality at January’s pre-season friendly against Castleford Tigers, allowing fans to open the season in style.

Hosted in the 1877 Bar, the afternoon will include seats in the East Stand, exclusive use of the 1877 Bar pre and during the match, a delicious two-course meal prepared by Kingston Park Stadium chefs along with the opportunity to mix with members of the Newcastle Thunder squad.

There will also be an exclusive pre-match Q & A with players to allow supporters to get caught up on the team’s pre-season preparations and the inside track for the day’s game.

Priced at £30 + VAT per person, places are available to book now by emailing [email protected] or by calling 0191 214 2835.

The visit of the Tigers side will mark the third year on the bounce that Thunder have been able to test themselves against players from Super League stables, following on from Widnes Vikings in 2016 and St Helens last year.

2017’s Betfred Super League grand finalists will be sending a squad to provide Thunder with quality opposition for their only scheduled home friendly, as Jason Payne and Michael Heap look to fine tune their side ahead of the new season’s kick off.

With Wallsend Eagles playing their first-round tie in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup against Pilkington Recs as a curtain raiser, it promises to be a great value day out for fans first fix of rugby league in 2018
