Super League side hit landmark season ticket total

Hull KR players applaud their fans

Hull KR are a Super League side on the up as evidenced by their impressive 2023 campaign and fans are receptive to that with the club confirming huge membership totals.

The Robins were a bit of an unknown quantity heading into the 2023 season with rookie head coach Willie Peters taking the reins following the mid-season departure of veteran Tony Smith.

Rovers fell short of the playoffs in 2022 with injury after injury derailing the season but the East Hull club had a clear goal of making the playoffs, and pushing on even further.

New signing Tom Opacic spoke at the 2023 season launch explaining how winning the title was the ultimate goal, something that shocked many but a goal that wasn’t too unrealistic as the season played out.

Hull KR finished fourth on the Super League ladder and made it to the playoff semi-finals where they had one of their poorest performances at the most important time, crashing out to eventual champions Wigan Warriors in a game that got away from them within the opening quarter of an hour.

With plenty of impressive signings for 2024 there’s optimism the club could go one better this season and that’s been reflected in very impressive membership figures.

The club have taken to social media to confirm that they’ve hit the landmark total of 7,500 members for the 2024 season, a figure that underlines the optimism and positivity around Craven Park at the minute.

Hull KR averaged over 8,000 fans at home in 2023 but with such a high membership tally they could be set to surpass even that this season, which is why there has been talk of a new stand at the club.

Posting the news of the membership tally on social media platform X, the Robins labelled their fans “incredible” as they try and push to eclipse 8,000 before the Super League season launch.

Rovers face Leeds Rhinos this weekend and then all eyes will turn to their opening game which pits them against city rivals Hull FC.

Unfortunately for Rovers fans, they have had their ticket allocation limited for that clash after unsavoury scenes spoiled their last game at the MKM stadium.

Despite running out as 40-0 victors a series of issues between fans marred the game and there has now been extra police and security drawn in for the occasion, as well as a limit on the number of Hull KR fans that can attend.

It’s a huge shame for the sport and of course for Robins’ fans with many members missing out as a result of it, especially given the huge number of members that the Robins have amassed for the 2024 season.
