KEIGHLEY Cougars can today inform supporters further regarding the ticketing arrangements for the 2023 Betfred Championship Summer Bash.
The bash, which will take place over the weekend of the 27/28 May at the LNER Community Stadium in York, will see the side face the Bradford Bulls in Game 3 of the day on Sunday 28th May.
The club have today been in dialogue with the Rugby Football League and can now announce the details of our allocation and arrangements.
Ticket price bands are split into just Adults and Concessions, with supporters aged 65 or over and 16 or under qualifying for the Concessions band. All other supporters must purchase tickets from the Adults band.
The ground is also split into two sections, with the West Stand designed as Category 1 and the South Stand designated as Category 2.
Category 1 tickets in the West Stand will have a side view of the pitch, with Category 2 tickets in the South Stand located behind the sticks.
Tickets in Category 1 are priced at double of those of tickets in Category 2.
2023 ‘K-Town and Proud’ season ticket holders will qualify for a 50% discount on tickets purchased for Summer Bash as long as they are purchased directly from the club.
There will also be strictly NO UNRESERVED SEATING at this season’s event, meaning supporters MUST sit in the seats allocated to them on their ticket.
On the Sunday, the Cougars will be sharing the designated home end, located at the south end of the venue, with supporters of Newcastle Thunder and Halifax Panthers.
The Rugby Football League have informed the club that tickets will not be available for sale for another 4-6 weeks.
They are still currently in the process of printing the tickets and also finalising the kick-off times for all eight games to be played over the weekend with broadcast partners and sponsors.
Please note that our fixture against the Bradford Bulls will NOT be televised on Viaplay Sports which means attending the Bash will be the only way to see this fixture live.
Once tickets arrive at Cougar Park for sale, we will announce it on both the club website and social media channels.
Physical ticket sales will be available from Cougar Park upon their arrival for sale with the club to make a further announcement regarding online ticket sales in due course.
