Leigh Centurions announce drop in ticket prices after listening to supporters

The Board of Directors at Leigh Centurions have reviewed the ticketing pricing in line with some observations made by spectators.

The Leigh club made this statement earlier on today: “The club is proud to play in the fantastic facility at Leigh Sports Village, with arguably the best playing surface in the country, that houses a Rugby league team.

“It is also proud of the facilities that are provided to attract and train its full-time squad which has received significant investment from the club’s owner to facilitate that recruitment and that of a quality back-room staff.

“This level of facility obviously comes at a cost which our supporters have always recognised and appreciated. As with many things in life you get what you pay for, and it could be argued that what we provide represents the best value for money in the competition. We also provide ample free car parking for both home and visiting spectators within the sports village itself which at many stadiums is either chargeable or unavailable.

“However, when undertaking the review, the board did consider that visiting spectators do not have the opportunity of a £23 ticket which is available to home spectators. This further led the board to consider that some spectators who are unable to stand for the duration of the game are therefore left with no alternative other than to purchase the higher priced ticket. Having considered this situation, the board no longer believes there should be a price difference between the North Stand and other stands in the stadium.”

Well done to Leigh owner Derek Beaumont for listening to fan concerns!
