Swinton Lions are set to host Toronto Wolfpack on June 9, with plenty going on at Heywood Road and special ticket prices.

Toronto Wolfpack travel to Heywood Road on June 9 in a tasty Championship clash, with plenty going on at the ground.

An International Summer of Rugby League in Manchester as Toronto come to town!

At Heywood Road, Sale, Manchester M33 3WB – kick-off 6pm.

Two great sporting cities go head to head in June as Swinton Lions of Manchester take on the Toronto Wolfpack! As part of the Manchester club’s Summer of Rugby promotion, aimed at making Rugby League accessible and affordable for all, the Lions have heavily reduced their ticket prices for all adults (£5), whilst allowing under 16s to watch the game for free.

The pre-match build-up will focus on a family fun day, with entertainment and a live band, together with a schoolboy curtain raiser between two local community clubs. There will also be a bouncy castle for the kids, a discounted bar for the adults, and an outside barbeque (gates open from 3pm).

For that extra special experience a full corporate lounge package, including Sunday lunch, can be had for only £25 per person. This is followed by the main event which sees our Canadian visitors, this season’s stand-out team in the Championship, take on a resurgent Lions side who have won their last couple of league games and will be looking to cause a huge upset.

The Lions will be looking to engage people from across the Greater Manchester region to this exciting transatlantic showdown by offering this incredible special deal, with admission prices set at a fraction of what it costs to watch any other professional sport in Greater Manchester.

The ground itself is easily accessible, being just five minutes’ walk from the Brooklands Metro Station.

Lions’ Chairman, Andy Mazey explained, “Two great cities, two great sets of fans, entertainment for all of the family and some quality Rugby League – what’s not to like?

“Through the ever-growing mechanism of globalisation the world is getting smaller and large city clubs will inevitably be the main attraction for future broadcast partners and blue-chip sponsors.

“As a club we are determined to align ourselves as THE Manchester club, taking full advantage of a City with a global reputation for sport which is crying out for a big professional Rugby League club.”
