Wakefield Trinity reveal stunning season ticket sales

Wakefield Trinity may be in the Championship in 2024 but they appear to be one of the strongest clubs in the British game at the moment.

They have new owners, a fantastic redeveloped stadium which is only set to improve in the months to come, they have one of Super League’s best coaches over the last decade at the helm and some big name signings through the door.

Now they have enjoyed some of the best and most impressive ticket sales out of any club in just 24 hours.

They have already sold 2,250 season tickets which has already surpassed last year’s total and is headed towards record numbers. In the second day of sales that number increased to 2,750 and is over half of what Wakefield’s average attendance was last year meaning the club are heading towards much stronger attendances next year helped by their newly developed stadiums.

This shows the positivity at the club who are looking like a Super League side in waiting with their IMG score set to sky rocket in 2024.

They are also aiming to win the Championship in 2024 as new owner Matthew Ellis noted: “Winning the comp is the goal. That’s what we’re talking about. That’s what we’re here to do. We have an internal ambition for that, don’t we? Internal and external. No bones about it, we’re putting a budget in to win the comp. Putting up coaching staff in to win the comp. Next year we definitely want to be winning that competition.”

New boss Daryl Powell reiterated that saying that it is “100%” doable. He added: “Obviously we’re still building a squad but if you look at the quality of players that we’re signing, the dual registration, we’re going to support that. We’re in a strong position. Still a few more to come in. We’re going to be signing more players. We’re saying full-time. We’ve got a great group of players who are already at the club. Some real quality players. We’re in a great position. We’re confident.

“Obviously, you’re going to get challenged. It’s a tough comp, the Championship. You can’t underestimate it. I’ve coached there before at Featherstone. I know what it’s like. I know what it takes. Danny Kirmond has been in the Championship for a couple of years. He’s got great experience at that level in recent times.”

Ellis meanwhile added: “It’s a fun year for the supporters as well. That’s what we’re after. A fun year for the supporters and get them buzzing for it. We won’t underestimate the comp, we’re going to respect the comp, but, you know, we’re aiming to win the comp, 100 per cent.”
