Pre-sales on match tickets for Newcastle Thunder’s Magic Friday fixture against York City Knights are beginning to accelerate, with just over four weeks to go to kick off.
Once again acting as an unofficial curtain-raiser to rugby league’s big visit to the North East, the Dacia Magic Weekend, Thunder are hoping to continue the pattern of increasing spectator numbers that the York match has delivered in the last two years.
Starting with an impressive 2,557 in 2015, last year’s edition saw 3,033 pour through the Kingston Park turnstiles as the club capitalised on the region’s moment in the sport’s spotlight.
The head to head in the fixture currently lays at one a piece with Thunder taking a big win in 2015, before York avenged that loss last year.
With a big crowd expected, both the East and West stands at the ground will be open, along with enhanced hospitality packages, details of which can be found here.
