Hornets fans can watch the team at the Crown Oil Arena on Sunday
Rochdale Hornets will welcome fans back to the Crown Oil Arena this weekend for the visit of North Wales Crusaders on Sunday 27 June.
The team has played the last six games away from home due to work being completed on the pitch at the stadium and will return to the Crown Oil Arena on Sunday for the first time in seven weeks.
Tickets are also now on sale for the game against London Skolars on Sunday 4 July.
Entry to both the Crusaders game and the London Skolars game is free for under 16s.
Adult tickets are just £10 and student tickets are £5.
Tickets can be purchased on the day but the new ticketing system in place at the stadium means tickets must be bought from the ticket office. The club have advised fans to purchase a ticket online via the club web site and receive an eTicket direct to your email or digital wallet to avoid queuing on a matchday.
Chief Executive Steve Kerr said: "I’m delighted to announce ticket incentives to make rugby league at Rochdale really affordable. We’ve made a commitment that all under-16s can access games at the Crown Oil Arena for free and we have some great opportunities for adults to access the games for £10. It’s been a particularly difficult year, so this is our way of giving back and I hope the fans get behind the team after 16 months without a home game.
"Our kids free initiative will also be rolled out to community clubs and groups as we aim to build back better and increase crowds. Kids are the future of this sport and we have to do more to make it accessible. Although some restrictions remain in place, the Hornets game day will be a great occasion following players like Gavin Bennion and Fuifui Moimoi."
