Summer Bash

Summer Bash

FOLLOWING the record-breaking attendance of 15,912 last year, Rugby League’s Bank Holiday Festival, Summer Bash, returns to Bloomfield Road, Blackpool on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28.

This year’s Summer Bash boasts six exciting fixtures in the Kingstone Press Championship, including a potentially mouth-watering clash of OLDHAM and derby rivals Rochdale Hornets on the Saturday, kicking-off at 2.30pm.

The best talent from League 1 will also be on show in the first fixture of the weekend, the League 1 Cup Final.

With FREE tickets for OLDHAM season-ticket holders and tickets for others priced from £20 (adults) and £10 (concessions), it promises to be a huge value-for-money event for supporters.

SATURDAY, May 27: League 1 Cup Final (noon); OLDHAM v Rochdale Hornets (2.30); London Broncos v Featherstone Rovers (4.45), Hull KR v Bradford (7pm).

SUNDAY, May 28: Sheffield Eagles v Swinton Lions (12.35); Halifax v Toulouse Olympique (3pm); Batley Bulldogs v Dewsbury Rams (5.15pm).

Summer Bash tickets are now available from the OLDHAM club, FREE to our season-ticket holders and at the following prices for others:

DAY TICKETS: Reserved seats £30, concessions £15; unreserved £20, concessions £10.

WEEKEND TICKETS: Reserved seats £50, concessions £25; unreserved £30, concessions £15.

Concessions (stipulated by RFL) cover 65s and over; 16s and under; students and serving Military, both with valid ID (essential because they may have to be produced at turnstiles).


Those with Roughyeds SEAT passes will get a FREE reserved seat in West Stand, which will be much nearer the half-way line than last year.

Those with Roughyeds STANDING passes will get a FREE unreserved seat in South Stand.
