Super League start date revealed as Thursday night games likely set to end

Super League trophy

Leeds Rhinos have announced that the start of the 2024 is 90 days away revealing when the opening round of Super League will take place.

90 days from today, the 18th November, puts us at Friday 16th February which is around the date last season began but last than some seasons have started in the past such as the 2019 campaign which actually started in January.

This also suggests an end to Thursday night games if the opening game of the season is set to take place on a Friday.

In recent years, a Thursday night game has kicked off the season such as Leeds themselves last year away at Warrington Wolves and the year before between St Helens and Catalans Dragons.

The Thursday night games were already phased out towards the end of last season and it seems that will continue.

The Rhinos already have pre-season friendlies against Wakefield Trinity and Hunslet pencilled in with plans for two more inbteween.

The Rhinos revealed that the season was 90 days away to push their season ticket offers. The Rhinos have announced a new simplified membership range for the 2024 season with reductions in price for the majority of members from last season as part of a new Early Bird offer.

This will be the first season since the global pandemic that prices return to normal for those members who opted for the three-year discount, but the savings are even greater when compared to 2019.

The Rhinos have re-introduced an Early Bird deadline discount that means the biggest savings are available to Season Members who purchase before midnight on Monday 20th November, after which prices will rise. Season Members from 2023 also have until this date to renew into the same position for the 2024 Betfred Super League Season. Adult South Stand standing membership is now just £200 with the early bird discount compared to £250 in 2019 and with the option of 0% monthly Direct Debits over 10 months*, fans can watch Leeds Rhinos from as little as £20 a month**.

Junior Season Membership continues to represent excellent value for money with junior members receiving the equivalent of 7 games free plus any juniors who sign up will automatically be a part of Ronnie’s (under 12) or Captain’s Club (12-16 year olds). Juniors will now fall into the same price category which is 5-16 years old.

There will be no student price option next season however the Rhinos have increased the age limit on their concession category with reduced prices for 17-23 year olds.

The East Stand seating will now just be one price category with centre section seating the same as previous wing sections.

Rhinos 2024 Supporter Membership will be £30 but will include a standing match ticket for one Betfred Super League Home game during the 2024 Season. The popular three and five game flexi memberships are back for 2024 but with even more options for supporters to use the tickets as it suits their needs.

Commenting on the new membership launch Commercial Director Rob Oates said, “Firstly I would like to say thank you to our supporters for their incredible support not just this season but over some tough times in recent years.

“We remain the best-supported club in Super League, both home and away, and that is something we will never take for granted. When creating our membership packages for 2024, we were always mindful that the price freeze following 2020 was coming to an end and we wanted to make memberships as easy and affordable as possible. With Adult Season Memberships starting from £20 a month** on our Direct Debits offer and Junior Standing Season Memberships from £60 we believe we have done that. There is a great deal of hard work going on to build a squad who can once again challenge for honours next season and your support to do that is invaluable,” added Oates.

Leeds Rhinos star Cameron Smith added, “I would like to thank all our members this season for the backing they have given to me and the boys. So many of this squad grew up as fans of the club so we know how much it means to you because it means the same to us too. No one is hiding away from the fact it has been a tough year and we have not reached the goals we set ourselves. However, I can promise you that everyone in that dressing room now is determined to take our club back to the top in the years ahead and, with your backing, we will get there. From all the boys, thank you and I hope that in the years ahead we will look back and see that this was the point when we stuck together and achieved something special.”
