Amazing ticket sales announced for Grand Final

The likes of Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, St Helens and Catalans Dragons are battling it out for Grand Final glory.

With the Grand Final looming in the distance, the entertainment for the event has now been confirmed.

Reverend and the Makers – a band with previously unknown Rugby League pedigree – are relishing the prospect of playing at the Betfred Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford on October 14.

The Sheffield indie favourites are proud of their northern roots – their latest album is Heatwave in the Cold North – and will join a distinguished list of bands to have provided pre-match and half-time entertainment on Super League’s Saturday night spectacular, including James, The Charlatans and Shed Seven.

But they will be unique in having a direct bloodline to the sport, as frontman Jon McClure proudly boasts an uncle, Malcolm, who played professionally on the Cumbrian coast for Whitehaven.

“It’s in the family!” he said.

“We’re really looking forward to playing the Super League Grand Final. It’s gonna be a great day!”

Heavyweight Champion of the World was the band’s breakthrough single – will they perform it on the night Betfred Super League’s 2023 Champions are crowned?

With the Play-Offs kicking off this weekend and six teams still in the running for the 25th Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford, ticket sales are more than 30% up on the equivalent stage last season.

So move fast to secure your tickets, with prices starting at 30 pound for adults and 15 pound for juniors.

The 2023 Betfred Super League Grand Final kicks off at 6pm, with pre-match entertainment starting from 5pm, and Reverend and the Makers due on stage around 540pm for their pre-match set, and again at half-time.
