Hull KR cup tie

Date published: Wednesday, March 30, 2016

OLDHAM RL Club have confirmed that the club’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fifth-round tie against Hull KR will take place at the KC Lightstream Stadium on Saturday, April 16, kick-off 2pm.

Tickets will be priced at £12 adults and £6 concessions when bought in advance, rising to £15 adults and £10 concessions on game day.

They will go on sale at Whitebank (inside the ground) at 9.30am on Monday and will be available next week from 9.30am to 1.30pm on Monday and Tuesday and from 9.30am to 4pm on Wednesday and Friday.

As this is a shared-gate cup-tie, season tickets are not valid and it’s an all-pay match.

Said Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton:

“Rovers would have preferred to play on Friday night but in fairness to them they didn’t make a formal request because they realise it would have been unfair to us and to our supporters.

“They think Saturday is next best for attracting their fans. We are happy with that and, by coincidence, we play the following Saturday too, at Whitehaven, so we will still have a full week’s turn-around as usual.”
