RIVAL supporters will be segregated when Featherstone Rovers host Hull Kingston Rovers in the Super 8s Qualifiers on Sunday, September 3.

Featherstone officials are obliged to take this course of action due to an ongoing Rugby Football League investigation into an incident which occurred when the two sides last met in June,

Featherstone supporters are asked to make use of the Community Stand, Main Stand and Post Office Road End.

Hull KR fans will have access to more than 2,200 seats in the Went Valley Stand and Railway End.

Featherstone general manager Davide Longo said: “Given the ongoing investigation into what occurred the last time we played Hull KR, we have had to take this option and hope our supporters can understand the reasoning behind it.

“Crowd safety is paramount here at the LD Nutrition Stadium and we feel these measures will ensure everyone who visits us next month, for what will be a massive game for both clubs, enjoys a great day.”

Stewards will guide supporters of both clubs to the appropriate areas of the ground upon entering at the turnstiles.

Changing of ends will not be permitted.
