Featherstone and Hull KR fans to be segregated

Crowd trouble Featherstone

Supporters of Featherstone and Hull KR will be segregated when they face off in the Qualifiers at the LD Nutrition Stadium on Sunday week.

The decisions comes after crowd disturbances between the two sets of fans during their Championship fixture at the same venue 11 weeks ago.

An RFL investigation is currently ongoing after clips emerged on social media of chaos on the terraces during the game on Sunday 4th June.

Featherstone supporters are asked to make use of the Community Stand, Main Stand and Post Office Road End for next week’s game, while Hull KR fans will have access to more than 2,200 seats in the Went Valley Stand and Railway End.

General Manager of Featherstone Rovers, Davide Longo, said: “Given the ongoing investigation into what occurred the last time we played Hull KR, we have had to take this option and hope our supporters can understand the reasoning behind it.

“Crowd safety is paramount here at the LD Nutrition Stadium and we feel these measures will ensure everyone who visits us next month, for what will be a massive game for both clubs, enjoys a great day.”
