Batley Bulldogs with brilliant ticket offer that Super League sides should consider copying

Batley Bulldogs have come up with a fantastic ticket off that Super League clubs should consider.

The Bulldogs’ first game of pre-season sees them take on Dewsbury Rams in their traditional Boxing Day clash and potentially their last meeting for some time.

However, the Bulldogs will not be charging for junior fans who wish to attend the game whilst adults will have to pay just £15.

It is perhaps an offer Super League clubs should consider for their pre-season games to generate interest in the new season.

It is also an example of how enticing a Boxing Day can be .

Last year there were only three games scheduled for Boxing Day: Leeds Rhinos vs Wakefield Trinity, Batley Bulldogs vs Dewsbury Rams and Bradford Bulls vs Halifax Panthers and only one of them went ahead in the shape of Leeds vs Wakefield due to poor weather conditions.

The Rhinos and Trinity are set to meet again this year, as they do every year.

Initially the fixture was to be played on the 27th due to Leeds United vs Manchester City but with the change of this Premier League fixture allowed Leeds to move the game back to its traditional date at 11;30am on Boxing Day.

Now another West Yorkshire derby has been confirmed for the festive period with Batley and Dewsbury set to meet in their traditional clash on Boxing Day.

The two had very differing 2022s with Batley 80 minutes away from Super League and Dewsbury relegated to the Betfred League 1.

Now they will meet on Boxing Day in potentially their only meeting of the new season.

The game is at Batley and will kick off at 12:00.
