Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are looking for more members to sign up to the club’s 1873 scheme, which gives fans the chance to win £250 pounds each week, as well as supporting the future of the club.
The scheme has a subscription fee of just £1 per week, and sees one lucky winner each week win a guaranteed £250, with a host of other prizes available, including a £10 Wildcats retail voucher for five lucky runners up.
The money raised through the scheme is all fed straight back into the club’s Youth Development programme, and has been a vital factor in the development of first team players such as Tom Johnstone and Max Jowitt, who are currently playing a huge part in the Wildcats’ first team success.
Back-rowers Chris Annakin, who has recently signed a new contract extension with the club, and Jordan Crowther, who has recently returned from a successful loan spell at York City Knights, are further examples of the success the 1873 programme is having, as is 17-year-old James Batchelor, who has come through the junior ranks at the club, before signing his first professional contract last month.
The development of these players would simply not have been possible without the funding of the Club 1873 scheme, which improves training, education and facilities at the club, as well as allowing the club to sign these talented youngsters on long term contracts and prevent them moving elsewhere.
Once you have signed up to the scheme, you will be given a Club 1873 membership card which will include your randomly generated numbers where you could be the lucky winner of the £250 jackpot each week.
The numbers will be picked at random and each weekly winner will be announced (where applicable) at home games and published on our website.
There are also a number of other prizes available throughout the season, including:
You can sign up for the Club 1873 scheme at the club shop in the Ridings Centre, and as the lifeblood of this club, we hope you, the fans, will support this great scheme for just £1 per week, to help ensure Wakefield Trinity Wildcats remain one of the leading names in rugby league and continue to enjoy the on-field success we are currently seeing.
