WITH just over three weeks to go until the 2011 Engage Super League campaign kicks-off with a bang, unreserved tickets for the opening weekend’s Millennium Magic Weekend extravaganza at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium have almost sold-out.
All 14 Super League clubs will be in action during the Magic Weekend and with some fierce some contests in store, fans are sure to be treated to an action-packed start to the season.
Saints are urging fans to secure their tickets for the February 12 and 13 event as soon as possible so that they don’t miss out on Royce Simmons’ new look team in competitive action for the first time.
Wigan will provide the opposition in what will be a repeat of last season’s Grand Final in what will be a mouth-watering contest. “We can’t wait for the Magic Weekend to come around,” a club spokesman said. “We’re deep into pre-season now and everyone is gelling well together. We just can’t wait to get out on the pitch.
“There are a few new faces in the squad and everyone is determined to go out there and put their mark on a squad position for the rest of the year and to do that in Cardiff would be extra special.
“Some of our guys have never played at the Millennium Stadium before and they’re really excited about playing under the roof in one of the best stadiums in the world.
“Going to Cardiff and having all the fans together under one roof to start the season is a great idea. This is very much a weekend to celebrate the thousands of loyal fans who follow Rugby League and for us to show them all that we plan to be (serious contenders/be the surprise package) in 2011.
“Our games against Wigan are always close, tight and exciting and we’re sure that the Magic fixture will be no different.”
