The Lions are offering FREE admission to their upcoming home game against Toulouse Olympique on Saturday 28th April, kick-off 3pm.

Swinton Lions plan to throw open the gates for FREE at their upcoming home game against Toulouse Olympique on Saturday 28th April (kick-off 3pm). In addition, the Lions will be charging a mere £22 for a quality two-course meal in the superb new corporate facilities at Heywood Road, Sale.

In the lead up to the match, the club intends to market the game extensively in the Trafford area in a bid to win over new friends. Swinton Operations Director Steve Wild explained, “We have a tremendously loyal hardcore of support from the Swinton area, but we need to think hard about how we can increase our home gates. Letting everyone in for free is obviously a massive gamble in terms of potential lost revenue, but if we can attract a good crowd, particularly from the Sale and Trafford area, then hopefully they will enjoy the experience and become regulars.

“We are also mindful that our regular fans have gone beyond the call of duty over these last few months, and this is a small way of saying thank you for that loyal support. We are mindful that Season Ticket holders might feel disadvantaged by the idea, but we have plans to reward them in a different way on the day.

“We also hope that our loyal fans will spread the word amongst their own families and groups of friends, and maybe we can attract new supporters and sponsors, or perhaps re-engage those former fans who have become disaffected over the past few years.

“Toulouse Olympique is a name which gives the fixture an international and an exotic feel, so hopefully this will appeal to non-regular Rugby League supporters. The fact that we are playing this fixture on a Saturday should also help the initiative – indeed we have no direct opposition from any other Rugby League games that day, nor indeed from Man United, Man City or Bolton Wanderers – so everyone will be most welcome!”
