Junior Players Free on Sunday

  • Junior Rugby League players can attend Academy Grand Final for free

  • Youngsters aged 16 or under attending in club colours gain free entry

  • Wigan Under-19s host Castleford Under-19s at the DW Stadium on Sunday, 2pm kick-off

Junior Rugby League players can gain free entry into this weekend’s Under-19s Grand Final simply by turning up with club colours on.

Wigan Under-19s face Castleford Tigers Under-19s in the 2017 Academy Grand Final at the DW Stadium on Sunday, 2pm kick-off.

This season Wigan finished top of the Academy League in 2017 losing just two games all season with the Tigers second in the ladder.

The pair will meet in Grand Final on Sunday with a good crowd expected at the DW Stadium.

Warriors Marketing Manager, Paul MacLeod, said:

“The Academy Grand Final is always a special event and to play at the DW Stadium is something that both sets of players will never forget.

“We wanted the day to be a celebration of Rugby League in the town and what better way than for younger local players to get in for free. Who knows? Maybe one day they will be featuring for the Wigan Academy or even First Team in a Grand Final.”

Entry is free to all amateur players aged 16 or under who turn up in the tracksuit or kit of their amateur team. Junior players wishing to take advantage of this offer are to use turnstiles A1 and A2.
