Knights’ cheap tick­ets plan

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

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.
