Dewsbury Rams have frozen admission prices for their mouthwatering Ladbrokes Challenge Cup sixth round tie against Super League side Warrington Wolves.

The tie has been confirmed for Friday May 15, kick off 8pm, and the club are hoping to create a similar atmosphere as last year’s cup clash against Wigan Warriors, when more than 3,000 supporters were in attendance.

Although the Warrington tie will not be all ticket, Dewsbury are advising supporters to purchase before May 10, with adult season ticket holders of both clubs receiving a £3 discount for any area of the stadium (£2 for concession season ticket holders).

In addition, junior season ticket holders of both clubs will be admitted free.

Rams chairman Mark Sawyer was delighted with Monday’s draw and is anticipating another bumper crowd, following the stadium record attendance of 4,068 for the Bank Holiday Kingstone Championship clash against Bradford Bulls.

Mr Sawyer said: “It’s a great draw for the club and it promises to be another big night for everybody connected with Dewsbury Rams.

“We’re hoping for a competitive performance from our players on the field and a big turn-out from both sets of supporters, just like we had last year against Wigan.

“We think it’s important to reward the club’s loyal supporters, so I’d like to thank Warrington for agreeing to a discount for season ticket holders.

“We’re hoping for a strong turn-out from the Warrington supporters, and I fully expect the Rams fans to be out in force for this one too.”

Tickets will be available to buy and collect from the club from next week.

Dewsbury have subsidised coach travel for Rams supporters heading to this Sunday’s Championship clash at London Broncos as the club continue to forge impressive links with their fan base.

Free junior season ticket holders have been handed to around 200 under-16s supporters and earlier this season, free transport was provided by the Rams to ferry supporters to their postponed Championship game at Workington Town.
