The Wildcats wish to make supporters aware of the stadium arrangements in operation for 2013.
Since the start of the new Super League season the club have allocated visiting clubs tickets in the Western Terrace in order to improve fan experience for all supporters based on feedback from a range of people including spectators and the matchday security team.
As such, Wildcats fans have been encouraged to stand in either the Fleetmaster North Stand or East Stand and the club wish to thank all supporters who have helped the new policy run so well in the opening months of this year.
At Easter Monday’s game with Hull FC, this policy was more strictly enforced than at previous games by our matchday security team based on advice from West Yorkshire Police.
Following last year’s fine for crowd disturbances in the game with Castleford Tigers, the club is naturally under close scrutiny from the RFL for any such occurrences taking place again and at risk of a much larger fine should this happen.
With this in mind, the club is determined to ensure this is avoided and that a small minority of supporters don’t spoil the matchday experience of the majority.
The club have been made aware that the enforcement of the policy on Easter Monday caused some issues with access to the stadiums facilities and will be working with catering partners Lindley’s to ensure this is rectified for the visit of Warrington Wolves on Sunday 14th April and the remainder of the season.
Supporters will not be prevented from standing in the Western Terrace when the number of travelling fans allows it, and the club requests supporters understanding that this cannot be guaranteed to be the same area they have watched from historically.
As always, the club is open and receptive to feedback on this or anything regarding the club and will contact everyone who has been in touch with us following the Easter Monday game.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
