Vikings to take on Whitehaven, 12th Jan

30th December 2017

Widnes Vikings will be taking on Whitehaven RLFC on Friday 12th January 2018 (8pm kick off).

The friendly will give Vikings Members and supporters the opportunity to see both established first team stars and a number of Vikings debutants take to the field.

With advance tickets priced at just £10 for adults, £8 for concessions and £5 for juniors, the game offers unrivalled value for supporters to enjoy the pre-season action. Executive seating will also be available at just £20 for adult or £15 for juniors, including a free meal.

The Vikings will be looking to create a fantastic atmosphere, with a number of new faces set to make their debut. This is the perfect opportunity to show your support as Super League 23 edges ever closer.

The Club’s aim is to open both the South Stand and Pat Price Stand for the fixture, but a decision on this will only be made based on pre-sale figures. Due to the operational necessities required to host a match-day, the South Stand will be open to both Vikings and Whitehaven supporters. The Club will confirm the opening of the Pat Price Stand (North Stand) if a minimum of 500 pre-sale tickets are sold for the Stand by the end-of-play on Tuesday 9th January.

Following this deadline, ticket prices will increase to £15 for adults, £12 for concessions and £8 for juniors, with these prices maintained on matchday.

There is a significant cost for opening both stands, but it is the Club’s objective to ensure that supporters can sit in their preferred area of the Halton Stadium. The club are confident that with attractive ticket prices for the fixture, this number of pre-sales is more than achievable. The Club would urge Members and supporters to pre-purchase their tickets to ensure that catering and staffing provisions can be made for the opening of the Pat Price Stand.

Vikings new star, Krisnan Inu, is eagerly anticipating his first run-out in front of the black-and-white faithful.

Krisnan says: “I’ve played at the Halton Stadium a number of times in the past and the atmosphere has always been magnificent from the Widnes Vikings supporters. I’m really excited to be to have the opportunity to step out for the home team, and I am sure that the prices on offer for this fixture help build a huge crowd.”
