YORK RLFC have confirmed that the club have exceeded their total number of season ticket sales from 2023 ahead of the new season.

York RLFC have now surpassed the amount of season ticket sold for last season for their new campaign, despite their being 14 weeks remaining until York Knights' first home match of the Betfred Championship season.

Andrew Henderson's side will get their home campaign underway against last year's Grand Finalists Toulouse Olympique at the LNER Community Stadium on Sunday, March 31 (3pm).

Meanwhile, York Valkyrie will kick-off their defence of the Betfred Women's Super League title on Saturday, April 20, when the competition returns. The BWSL fixture list is still yet to be confirmed, but will be released in late January.

Season tickets are available across four different packages that the club offer, with General Admission, Premier Club, Vice-Presidents and Presidents all available.

General Admission Season Tickets are priced at £199 for adults, £165 for concessions (17 to 21-year-olds) and are free for Under-16s, working out an average price of just over £15 per Knights match for adults and under £13 per Knights match for concessions.

York RLFC Chairman Clint Goodchild was delighted with the news, saying: "We are thrilled to be able to announce an increase in our Season Ticket sales for the 2024 season!

"This is a great trend and one that we saw this time last year too. While we have certainly tried to improve operations, show value and draw people to the club, the positive Season Ticket numbers are really encouraging and beyond expectation.

"The growth of the club comes off the back of the success of both York Knights and York Valkyrie as well as our commercial team, Foundation and back-office staff.

"It comes together to paint a really nice picture. Long may that trend continue.

"The really encouraging news is the number of new supporters that are signing up for Season Tickets.

"That is what it is all about, growing the game and getting new faces to the LNER Community Stadium week in, week out.

"Our game is one of the most attractive spectacles in sport. Putting it on the right stage and allowing access to that great product is the goal and it seems to be working.

"We're all really excited for 2024. There's still a lot of work to be done in pre-season, both on and off the field. But I believe we have a really good group of people here all working as one.

"We're one club with one goal in mind, which is to win."
