Dewsbury Rams have frozen season ticket prices, while juniors will continue to be admitted free of charge for the 2017 campaign.

Rams chairman Mark Sawyer stated that falling attendances were a concern but has vowed to do everything to entice supporters to Tetley’s stadium.

He has frozen season ticket prices for the 2017 season and, in a terrific gesture, the Rams will continue the scheme where juniors will receive free season tickets.

The only change will be that next season’s Summer Bash will be classed as a home game in the season ticket package for Championship clubs.

Fans who purchase a season ticket, will be charged an additional £15 on this season’s prices, to cover the cost of a Summer Bash ticket.

A seated season ticket in the North Stand will be £190 adults and £138 concessions, while standing tickets will cost £175 adults and £123 concessions, although juniors Under-16 will be entitles to a free season pass, which will include all home and away matches.

Mr Sawyer told supporters at the recent Fans Forum: “In terms of season tickets, the only adjustment to the price is that the RFL has confirmed that the Blackpool bash is now an established home fixture and they are asking clubs to include the cost of the fixture in their season tickets.

“The adult and concession season tickets will cover a minimum of 15 matches, or 16 as it has been in the last two seasons. We are keeping the season tickets as affordable as possible and it is important that we have solid sales of them.

“Juniors will again be able to get a free season ticket and will be able to buy a ticket for the Blackpool bash if they want to go to the game.”

Season tickets are on sale now via the Rams website or from the club shop and will be ready for collection in early December.

Mr Sawyer announced that Dewsbury will also play Super League bound Leigh Centurions away and top flight neighbours Wakefield Trinity at home in pre-season friendlies next season, with the Rams to keep gate receipts from both fixtures and dates to be announced in due course.

Mr Sawyer explained that the Leigh fixture had been agreed by the two clubs as a gesture of goodwill after the Centurions recalled half-back Ben Reynolds when he had initially been sent to the Rams on a season long loan.
