Catalans fixture moved for fans’ return
Hull FC’s Super League Round 6 fixture against Catalans Dragons at the KCOM Stadium has been moved to Monday 17th May (7:45pm) to accommodate a limited number of spectators.
Following lengthy discussions, Hull FC have reached an agreement with the Stadium Management Company (SMC) to move the fixture from Sunday 16th May so supporters can benefit from the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Despite the ongoing financial challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic, the club has agreed to a significant financial contribution in addition to their normal stadium user fees to ensure their fans are not prevented from watching their team for the first time since March 2020.
England is expected to enter stage three of the government’s roadmap out of the national lockdown on May 17th, which includes fans returning to stadia with capacity limits.
Hull’s fixture against the Dragons will be one of the first professional sporting events in the country to welcome back crowds, but the attendance will be strictly limited to fewer than 6,000 people in accordance with government guidelines.
Therefore, this fixture will only be available to 2021 members and corporate partners.
Members will be required to book a seat online or by phone. The club are working closely with the SMC to finalise this process.
Full details on this process will be circulated to 2021 members next week.
Corporate members will be contacted directly by the Hull FC commercial team next week.
The club would like to thank our loyal members and partners once again for their continued unwavering support over the course of the last 14 months throughout the pandemic and we look forward to welcoming them back to the KCOM Stadium later this month.
