St Helens have become the first club to sell out their ticket allocation for the Dacia Magic Weekend, which gets underway on Saturday.
Amidst concerns that the weekend attendance is set to be one of the lowest on record after the decision was taken to move to Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium over Newcastle, Saints emerged as the club leading the ticket sales and have now confirmed they have sold out their allocation.
This comes as encouraging news for Super League and the sport, with hopes of a bigger overall attendance than first feared now emerging, and Saints boss Justin Holbrook encouraged as many fans as possible to show their support.
“Any chance we can get to go to these other venues like we are doing this weekend at Anfield is great and the more people that can get down, especially football fans, the better,” he said.
“The Magic Weekend was my first game two years ago and I loved it and to have it roll around again is a special feeling for myself so as a coach I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
