Hull KR: Will face Leeds Rhinos in front of record crowd

Hull KR will kick off the First Utility Super League season in front of a record crowd at the KC Lightstream Stadium.

Sunday's clash with the Leeds Rhinos has already attracted ticket sales of 10,300, more than their previous record against Hull FC in 2011.

That game was just one of three to attract more than 10,000 fans to Rovers' historic home and chief executive officer Mike Smith is expecting Sunday to be a great occasion for the club.

"The board have always been prepared to back the club and seeing the stadium full on Sunday would show them that all the financial support and hard work is worth it."

"All the indications are that we will be putting up the 'sold out' signs on Sunday and that would be a wonderful achievement," Smith said.

Ambition

"The board of directors have demonstrated their ambition during the winter with significant investment being made both on and off the pitch and it's important that our supporters match that commitment by backing the club and the team.

"The board have always been prepared to back the club and seeing the stadium full on Sunday would show them that all the financial support and hard work is worth it.

"If there are supporters out there who are still not sure whether to come down to the game my message would be to buy a ticket, support the team and enjoy a great day out."

As well as the big game, Rovers have arranged plenty of entertainment off the pitch with local bands and regional artists booked pre and post-match on the North Stand concourse and in a marquee outside the Robins Nest.
