Supporters who have bought Castleford Tigers 2016 season tickets will be able to collect them from the Mend-A-Hose Jungle this week.
The tickets can be picked up today (Wednesday) between 10am and 4pm, tomorrow and Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday 9am to 1pm.
Fans who bought season tickets in store should take their pink A4 receipt with them for collection. For those who bought online they should print out their receipt and bring that along.
On arrival, fans should enter the stadium through the yellow gates, the collection station will then be signposted.
Anyone who selected postal delivery should receive their season ticket this week.
For the second year running the Tigers are supporting the Smawthorne Community Church Food Bank this Christmas and need supporters’ help.
The Food Bank is a straight forward system of collection, collation and distribution of basic food items to support people at times of crisis and it has helped many people in Castleford and the surrounding area.
Fans are asked to spare any non perishable items for the appeal and drop them off at the ground when collecting season tickets.
Tigers chief executive Steve Gill is hopeful that Tigers fans will be as generous as this time last year.
He said: “Christmas is an amazing time of year to spend with friends and family. During the festive period we realise just how fortunate we are. Last year our fans made a real difference to local people in our area who aren’t so fortunate.
“It’s hard to imagine that some families in our community go without a hot meal or presents for their children at Christmas.
“We know that your donations last year really helped families across Castleford greatly. It would be amazing to do it all again this year.”
“This year we’d like to take our appeal a step further. Not only are we collecting donations of non perishable food, we’re also looking for donations of toiletries and gifts. Essentials like toothpaste, soap and toilet roll are really needed.
“If you could spare a thought for a child this Christmas and add one more toy to your Christmas shopping list it will certainly go to a good home. Anything you can spare that could help make someone’s Christmas special would be greatly appreciated.”
