CASTLEFORD Tigers are introducing a new family zone for for home matches at the Probiz coliseum.

Keen to encourage new supporters to Super League, the Tigers have come up the idea to create a designated area just for families.

The South East corner - between the Main Stand and the boxes behind the Railway End of the ground - will be turned into a more vibrant area with a greater amount of amenities. This area will also be subject to a code of conduct.

Tigers community manager Alex Green said the club was acting on feedback from families in creating the family zone.

She added: “The idea of the family zone is to create a better atmosphere for families, which in turn will enable us to make a better impression on first time attendees and young families.

“However, anyone can view the games there providing they abide by the newly introduced code of conduct, which will clamp down in particular on swearing and smoking.

“Being located near Tiger Town, the chosen area is the most convenient place to be if you have children. It also has easy access to facilities, such as the Tigers bar, toilets with baby changing provisions and food stands.

“There will be an increased number of stewards in the family zone, who will be badged and numbered to make it easier to control the area, and alongside this a new complaints procedure will allow the club to deal with issues quickly, throughout the stadium.”

More information about the family zone and new complains procedure will be made available by the club in the days leading up to the first home Super League game against Bradford on Sunday week.
