Leigh Centurions promise an explosive start to life in the Betfred Super League. With a few surprises thrown in. And they aim to hit the high notes.
Manchester based soprano Alexandra Lowe will headline a spectacular evening’s entertainment before the game against Leeds Rhinos on Friday.
The award winning rising star will be accompanied by a spectacular fireworks display as the Sky Sports cameras focus on Leigh Centurions’ return to the game’s biggest stage.
Outside LSV Leigh Centurions and Leeds Rhinos fans will enjoy a fanzone with FREE fairground rides, a F1 simulator and a live music roadshow with Neville 42 – 80’s music and Level 42 tribute band.
The message from Leigh Centurions is clear- get there early and enjoy the ride!
Leigh Centurions owner Derek Beaumont knows how to put on a show.
He said: “Whilst Jukesy and Co have been fixing up the squad in preparation for the visit of Leeds Rhinos I have diverted my attention to putting on a fantastic spectacle with my fellow board members to mark in style our first ever Super League fixture at the LSV.
“We want to add something to Super League on and off the field at the same time as making the match day experience an enjoyable event irrespective of the result on the pitch.
“Attendances are key to this business and its ability to be self-sustainable and competitive at the highest level for years to come. We need the public of Leigh to come out in numbers to support the team to make this happen.
“You will have seen our commitment to investment in marketing our games to reach out to that audience with posters, billboards, lamp post signs, banners and newspaper adverts.
“We have created a fanzone outside the Stadium with a live band, fairground rides free of charge to the public and even a Formula 1 simulator to boot along with outside catering to attract more people to the stadium earlier.
“Once inside the Stadium fans will enjoy the amazing voice of Alexander Lowe and be tracing the red and white search lights into the sky to the energetic music.
“What comes next I will leave to your imagination until it happens but I am sure it will make a clear statement to the rest of Super League and all those watching on Sky Sports that LSV is the place to be to watch a game of Rugby League.
“This in itself will hopefully pay dividends attracting more people to the stadium and in particular away fans to come to support their teams when they play us to absorb the atmosphere.
“It will be an explosive start to our Super League life at Leigh Sports Village.”
