Wildcats and Rhinos set for Boxing Day Clash

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats can reveal that we will face local rivals Leeds Rhinos at Headingley Carnegie in the Wetherby Whaler Festive Challenge on Boxing Day, 26th December, kick-off 11.30am.

The iconic Yorkshire restaurant chain will become the new title partner for the traditional fixture. Founded in Tadcaster in 1969, the Wetherby Whaler now has five branches across Yorkshire serving about 750,000 portions of haddock in their restaurant and takeaways per year. The restaurant also sponsors our very own Daddy Cool!

The Boxing Day fixture is a firm favourite, particularly with families. This year junior tickets will cost just £5 when bought in advance and a special family ticket for four from just £40 (Advance purchase only).

Tickets will go on general sale on the first week of December from the club shop in the Ridings, you can also purchase them over the phone by calling 01924 201548. Wildcats and Rhinos members (2015 and 2016) can save £3 on the matchday admission price if they purchase before 1pm on Christmas Eve.

Phillip Murphy, Co-owner of the Wetherby Whaler Group, added, “We’re absolutely delighted to be sponsoring the Wetherby Whaler Festive Challenge. We have worked in partnership with both Wakefield Wildcats and Leeds Rhinos and know that lots of our customers are die-hard rugby fans and many follow one of these teams.

“We’re looking forward to a cracking day, a great match and we’d encourage as many fans as possible to come along for what will be a great Boxing Day match.”
