Wigan Warriors can today reveal that their Stobart Super League Round 13 meeting with Hull KR at the DW Stadium will form part of a celebration for our Armed Forces.

The fixture, which kicks off at 8pm on Friday 4th May, will see the start of the celebrations ahead of VE day which takes place 4 days later on May 8th and service men and women from all armed forces will play a part in the build up to the game.

As fans arrive at the Stadium they will be greeted with interactive Army games and activities whilst the crowds will be entertained ahead of the kick off by a military band and choir performing the National Anthem.

The bucket collection on the day will see the proceeds benefiting ABF - The Soldiers Charity and BLESMA.

Speaking about the day, Marketing Director Simon Collinson said,

"We are delighted to link up with the Army to help celebrate this special day. The Club and especially our fans have really got behind the St Georges Day celebrations over the past few seasons and we feel that the Armed Forces day will be just as special."

Lieutenant Colonel PJ Aindow of ABF said,

"We are thrilled to have been asked to be involved in the celebrations to mark VE Day. We have a great relationship with the Warriors and we would like to thank the Club and it's supporters in advance for helping us raise funds for the worthy soldiers charities."

Wigan Warriors have donated over £30,000 to Armed Forces charities over the past 3 seasons.

Collinson continued,

"We have a policy at the Club where we don't issue complimentary tickets, however having worked so closely with the Armed Forces over the past five years we were delighted to offer a number of tickets to soldiers who protect the country and work tirelessly in local communities across the world. Many of those who will be attending have recently returned from warzones and this is an opportunity for them to spend some quality time with their families whilst enjoying a Warriors game."

Tickets are now available for the clash between Wigan Warriors and Hull KR on Friday 4th May from the DW Stadium Ticket Office, by calling the Ticket Office Hotline on 0871 66 33 552 or by [clicking here].
