York City Knights will host a double-header at the LNER Community Stadium on 4th July, as their men’s team face Newcastle Thunder before the women face Bradford Bulls.
Kicking off at 3pm, the Men will face Newcastle in the Championship. Afterwards, fans will be able to take in the Knights Ladies’ next Women’s Super League match against Bradford Bulls which will kick off at 5:15pm.
Club Chairman Jon Flatman said: “It creates a longer and more worthwhile event for the fans while also giving those who have never seen the Women’s game in person a great chance to see it live at no extra cost.
“We are looking to integrate the Ladies team into everything the club does and, naturally, double-headers are a great way to do that. We have a showpiece Community Stadium here and it’s great to see more and more of the community using it.”
