An innovative ticket incentive scheme for Leigh Centurions and Salford Red Devils respective season ticket holders for the 2017 season has been announced.
Under the terms of the scheme Leigh Centurions and Salford Red Devils season ticket holders can buy tickets for opposite home games in the 2017 Betfred Super League at half price.
The only provisos are that the half-price scheme does not apply for games between Leigh and Salford.
Full support was given from Derek Beaumont and the Leigh Centurions board of directors when Salford Red Devils counterpart Marwan Koukash approached Leigh with the plan.
The two Owners have issued a joint statement on the Leigh Centurions website: “This is another enterprising and valuable loyalty offer for our season ticket holders and enhances the Super League competition.
“This scheme will enable our fans to watch another Super League game nearby on the occasions when we have no game.
“While either Leigh Centurions or Salford Red Devils are the No1 choice for our loyal fans, many fans are first and foremost Rugby League supporters and this is a great incentive to go and watch other games in a great competition that again promises fantastic entertainment in 2017.
“There is a healthy but friendly rivalry between our respective clubs and we hope as many Salford Red Devils fans as possible can take up this offer and enjoy watching games at LSV just as we are sure Leigh Centurions fans will look forward to their visits to the AJ Bell Stadium.”
