Knights’ cheap tickets plan
THE Tinkler Sports Group has unveiled its strategy to win over Knights supporters in the Hunter region – ‘‘ the best value’’ sports tickets in the country. Yesterday’s announcement was intended to influence any unconvinced Knights members regarding the group’s takeover bid. Group boss, mining magnate Nathan Tinkler, said it would allow families to purchase tickets to Newcastle’s NRL home games from $ 5 per person for reserved seating and $ 3.75 per person for general admission. The initiative, announced just eight days before members will vote on the future of their club, will only come into effect should the bid receive a 75 per cent majority on March 31.
