Still time to soak up some Magic sunshine

Date published: Saturday, May 26, 2012

Seven mouth-watering matches, a packed programme of activities in and around one of British sport’s iconic venues and a glorious weather forecast are combining to make Stobart Super League Magic Weekend 2012 a memorable success.

Demand for tickets on both days of Magic Weekend has continued all week ahead of the unique event at Etihad Stadium and fans can still secure their seat at Etihad Stadium in Manchester which hosts three Super League matches tomorrow (Saturday) and four on Sunday.

“Magic Weekend 2012 is guaranteed to provide some terrific entertainment for everyone, both for the committed Super League fan and anyone who may never have experienced the delights of live Rugby League before,” said RFL Director of Marketing Matt Lowery.

“As well as seeing some of the fiercest rivalries in British sport, fans can also enjoy a host of family friendly activities inside and outside Etihad Stadium, including the Mascot Games, the Fan Zone and Stobart Fest.

“It all has the makings of a weekend to remember and I’d urge anyone who is thinking of attending to get along: this is one sporting event you won’t want to miss.”
