Rugby league club Huddersfield Giants recently revealed that it has smashed a major milestone and has sold over 3,500 season cards. 

Ahead of the new Super League season, which kicks off on February 16 and will culminate on October 14, rugby league fans have made sure to secure their spot at the 24,500-capacity John Smith’s Stadium (pictured).

Club managing director Richard Thewlis believes that by the start of the new season, sales will be around 20% higher than last year.

Thewlis said: “This is great news for the club. And frankly with the buzz that seems to be around us at the moment we expect to do more before the start of the campaign.

“We have last week had a steady stream of new purchasers all of whom were very positive regarding the future and we cannot wait for the season to start, in what promises to be a fantastic year for the Giants and the game overall.

“I’d expect to start the season around 20% up on numbers from last year which is excellent progress.”

Thewlis added that fans that have not yet secured their season card can do so through the online ticketing service, or through the club’s physical ticket office.

Huddersfield Giants will begin its 2023 Super League season with a home game against Warrington Wolves on February 24.
