Castleford Tigers chief executive Steve Gill reckons the 2015 season was the club’s best yet in Super League and hopes that fans will back the team as it looks to kick on again next year.

Launching the sale of season tickets for next season, Gill said: “Finishing fourth in Super League in 2014 and fifth in 2015, we have given the club and our supporters, the appetite to be a top four side on a regular basis.

“I feel that the 2015 season has possibly been our best year to date in Super League and felt we were so close to attaining a semi-final spot.

“We have the foundations now within our club to be a top four club and kick on.

“With a new stadium on the horizon, I would like nothing more than to bring some silverware back to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle before we leave the old girl behind.

“Our fans are all so very important in helping us achieve this. By purchasing a 2016 season ticket you help so much with Daryl’s recruitment for the forthcoming seasons.

“I’ve always said that it doesn’t take a few to run our club, it takes a whole town. Be part of our club, be proud of our club, be the heartbeat of our club. Thank you once again for your support.”

Season tickets for the 2016 season are available now online at www.castlefordtigers.com or from the Tigers Den club shop, in Carlton Lanes.

Castleford Tigers offer a 2016 season ticket that secures admission to 14 home matches: 11 games from the regular Super League season plus three Super 8s fixtures. Castleford Tigers will offer a ‘free’ community game for the 15th home game on the season ticket should they have four home Super 8s fixtures.

The young persons season ticket is available for anyone aged 17-21 on or before February 1, 2016. The age bracket for this ticket has changed for 2016 and the club has reduced the cost of this ticket to make it easier for young people to support the Tigers.
