Essential information for fans who travel away

​FANS who travel to away games need to know the following new information regarding our Betfred Championship matches at Toulouse Olympique, Whitehaven and Sheffield Eagles.

Toulouse away: Saturday, February 8: Kick-off is now 6pm at Stade Ernest-Wallon, home of rugby union club Stade Toulousain. The stadium was built in the late 1980s and recently renovated. Capacity 19,500. France have played both England and New Zealand there, as have Catalans Dragons who played Hull KR at Ernest-Wallon in front of a capacity crowd in 2013.

Whitehaven away: Sunday, February 16: Kick-off is now 6.15pm for purposes of live streaming by OuRLeague. If you haven’t yet joined OuRLeague (it’s free) do so now and you’ll be able to watch the Whitehaven-Oldham game in the comfort of your favourite armchair, while simultaneously helping Oldham RLFC by joining OuRLeague.

Sheffield Eagles away: Wednesday, April 15, kick-off 7.45pm: Sheffield’s new home at the Olympic Legacy Park won’t be ready by then, so the Eagles first three Championship home games, including the Oldham game, will be played in Doncaster at the Castle Park home of Doncaster Knights RUFC. It has a capacity of 5,000 with 1,650 seats in the De Mulder-Lloyd Stand, along with other first-class facilities for spectators and players alike.

In each case this information will be repeated in the days leading up to the game.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
