Leigh Leopards are back in Super League and are back with a bang in more ways than one.
They have made some of the biggest signings of the off-season such as Leeds Rhinos Grand Finalists Zak Hardaker and Tom Briscoe as well as Huddersfield Giants star Ricky Leutele.
But the biggest headline they made was the rebrand as Leigh Leopards after years as the Leigh Centurions.
This has come with an exciting new look kit too and boosted season ticket sales according to owner Derek Beamont.
Their return to Super League comes against Salford Red Devils on February 17th in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
They are hoping to avoid relegation for the first time in Super League after suffering that fate in 2005, 2017 and 2021 and a win would be the ideal start.
It will be an exciting start to the season and the Leopards have heaped another bucket load of excitement onto it by today confirming hit band Scouting For Girls will be performing at the game.
The band are responsible for hits like “She’s So Lovely”, “Heartbeat” and “Elvis ain’t Dead” and have performed at the Super League Grand Final in 2008 as Leeds Rhino beat St Helens.
It was announced as Leigh defeated the Rhinos 14-12 on Saturday and the announcement had been teased all week with Leigh posting the likes of “she’s so loveLeigh” and it adds even more excitement to their return to Super League.
Now it has prompted the club to release more tickets for the opening game.
On Twitter they stated:
“With our first game of the Super League season fast approaching and excitement mounting after the announcement of Scouting For Girls as our entertainment for 17th Feb, we have opened the sale of East Stand tickets to members. Available now in Blocks F – K inclusive.
“Please note, A to D will not be on sale as our special guests will be performing in Block C, so depending on how close you want to be to the action, book your tickets online now!”
