Rochdale Hornets season tickets go on sale

Date published: 29 March 2021

Season tickets to watch Rochdale Hornets in 2021 are now on sale.

Fans can purchase a season pass which will allow them entry to all of the Betfred League 1 games played after 17 May, meaning that if the government's 'roadmap' remains on schedule that fans will be able to attend eight of the scheduled nine home games in 2021.

The club's opening game on 9 May against West Wales will be played behind closed doors, but all season pass holders will be issued with digital passes to watch the game on the OURLeague online platform.

Hornets' new ticketing platform from Future Ticketing will allow fans and spectators to buy tickets for this season online via the club website.

Adult season tickets are priced at £135, which works out at £15 per game, whilst concessions tickets are priced at £110, or £12.22 per game.

Students have previously been charged at the same rate as concessions but this season the club have lowered the price of a season ticket to just £20 (must have proof of student status), as it aims to attract a new audience to the Crown Oil Area.

Junior (under 16) season passes are free when purchased and accompanied by an adult or concession pass holder.

Hornets will only be able to offer a limited a number of hospitality tickets as the club face changes to their hospitality and lounge experience due to Covid restrictions.

Hornets CEO Steve Kerr said: "Our fans are the most important stakeholder at the club and so we wanted to offer great value with our prices. I'm really excited by the price drop on student passes which will hopefully help us boost attendances for those at college and university.

"We've also made the junior season pass free of charge, which again underpins our commitment to make rugby league affordable for families. Attracting a new audience is vitally important to growing the club and there's some incredible names like Welsh international Gavin Bennion and rugby league veteran Fuifui Moimoi lining up for the Hornets this season in 2021. Our hospitality seats are limited this season and fans wishing to have access to the 1907 lounge are encouraged to buy these early to avoid disappointment."

Fans will also be able to choose their seat in 2021 as the stadium will be open under Covid restrictions. Kerr added: "The new ticketing platform will make it easier for fans to buy passes and ticket and its something we've been wanting to implement for some time. Although fans are asked to socially distance, we've come up with a seating plan that will keep fans safe but also ensure you can sit within your bubble.

"We're look forward to welcoming our fans back to the Crown Oil Arena."
