FREE admission for our next home match against Catalans Dragons on Friday 15th June when ordering online before 12 midday on Friday

Huddersfield Giants Chairman Ken Davy has opened the doors of the John Smith's Stadium for the Betfred Super League match against Catalans Dragons on Friday 15th June, kick off 7:45pm and made a staggering FREE entry admission for all who claim ahead of gameday.

Get your tickets before 12 midday on Friday 15th June from the Club Store or online  ( ) and make the most of FREE entry to the John Smith’s Stadium for the Catalans clash.

The Chairman commented: “I believe we all need to show as a town that we are all fully behind Simon Woolford and his plans to take this great club forward. I can think of nothing better to greet him on his first home Super League game than a huge crowd and a newly refurbished John Smith’s Stadium pitch. The free entry only applies until midday on Friday 15th June, after which the price will be £10. We have done this in the past to great success and in all reality all we ask for as a Club from the new supporter is their data by pre-booking the tickets ideally online via or at the Club Shop here at the Stadium. Given the low season ticket pricing policy we implemented last year this fits perfectly for our marketing strategy and I am looking forward to a bumper take-up and a great evening.” 

Celebrate the arrival of Simon Woolford with us by using #WelcomeWoolford on social media and make Woolford’s first home Super League match an evening to remember.
