Pre-season had it’s first ‘official’ weekend of fixtures this past Saturday and Sunday but the action is getting underway a day earlier this week with two games on Friday.
The early kick-off is the Capital Challenge with London Broncos traveling to face city rivals London Skolars but it’s the later game where the home team are anticipating a huge crowd and have therefore warned supporters to be wary.
Featherstone Rovers are set to host Hull KR at their Millennium Stadium in veteran winger, Craig Hall’s, testimonial match the and the favourites for promotion from the Championship have forewarned fans regarding parking and the ability to get in and out of the ground.
That’s because the club are expecting a sell-out crowd with many KR fans expected to make the trip as well to show their love and support to their former player.
With the largest crowd in recent years anticipated we urge supporters to arrive at The Millennium Stadium as early as possible before the car park reaches capacity! 🚙

Two of Featherstone’s home games last season cracked the top five for the highest attended Championship games with a peak at the Millennium Stadium being over 4,500 when they hosted eventual Champions Leigh in round two.
With both clubs so well supported Hall’s testimonial is set to be the hottest ticket in town.
The winger has adhered himself to the fans of both clubs and has recently spoken about how it was always going to be a Rovers testimonial and he got his wish with the Robins agreeing to visit Featherstone for their former star.
Hall played over 100 times for Hull KR and will be pivotal if Featherstone are to gain promotion this coming season so it’s no wonder that the home side are expecting a packed-out stadium.
Only last week as his big day arrives Hall was keen to share his love for the KR with an endearing interview about what made the club so special, as reported here.
