London Broncos chief executive Gus Mackay is urging the club’s fans to attend their Challenge Cup quarter-final away to Sheffield Eagles at Don Valley Stadium in July.

With the play-offs out of reach in the Super League, the cup offers the Broncos their only chance of achieving glory this year and a trip to semi-professional opposition should help.

The club are running coaches on the day (Friday July 12) from Twickenham Stoop at 1pm at a price of £35 with individual match tickets £8 for adults, £5 for over 60s and £3 for students.

Junior season ticket holders can get their tickets free while under-16s get in for £3.

“This is a big game for us and I urge our fans to support the team by getting to this game,” Mackay said.

“We’ve agreed a fantastic offer for a rugby league game between Super League and Championship opposition and we hope that Sheffield Eagles, London Broncos and general rugby league fans support this game.”

Sheffield Eagles Chief Executive Mark Aston said: “This is an incredible offer not just for Eagles and Broncos supporters but for all rugby league fans.

“With Don Valley closing at the end of the year, the Broncos will be the last Super League side to visit the Stadium and final ever Challenge Cup game to be played here so it’s a game not to be missed.”

Tickets are on sale from now until Sunday July 8 and coach places can be booked by calling the Broncos on 0208 394 6161.
