Update on Wembley tickets

The RFL have today agreed with the four clubs who have qualified for the Finals of the above competitions at Wembley on Saturday July 17 – Castleford Tigers, St Helens, Featherstone Rovers and York City Knights – to delay putting tickets back on sale to supporters until there is more clarity regarding Step 4 of the Government roadmap out of Lockdown, and therefore regarding the stadium’s capacity. 

A Government announcement is scheduled next Monday (June 14) regarding Step 4 – seven days ahead of the June 21 date which had been identified as the earliest possible for the fourth and final stage of unlocking. 

Mark Foster, the RFL’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:

“We know there will be significant demand for Wembley tickets from each of the four clubs who won Semi Finals at the weekend, and that this delay will be frustrating. 

“However as with other sports preparing to stage major events in the weeks following June 21, we have agreed with the clubs that it is more sensible to wait until we have more information about how many fans will be able to attend. 

“We have some breathing space with six weeks until the Final, but we will continue working behind the scenes with Government and Wembley, as we have been doing for some time, to maximise our capacity on July 17 – and to put tickets back on sale as soon as possible. 

“We have deliberately held back a good proportion of tickets even for a limited capacity to ensure that supporters of the four clubs involved will be able to attend.” 

The kick-off times at Wembley have now been confirmed, with the Betfred Challenge Cup Final between Castleford Tigers and St Helens kicking off at 3pm, and the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup Final between Featherstone Rovers and York City Knights preceding it at midday. 


Club Cash

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
