Halifax Panthers fans urged to stay at home ahead of Huddersfield Giants visit
Halifax Panthers welcome Huddersfield Giants in an opposed training session at the Shay on Saturday and fans are being urged to stay at home.
Normally the visit of the Giants as well as the arrival of new players at the club would present an ideal opportunity for autograph hunters and selfies but in a joint appeal, the RFL, Calderdale Council and Halifax Panthers are urging all fans to stay safe at home and not visit the Shay.
“We understand the pent-up demand from fans to see our players and get close to the action and we are keen to see everyone back at the Shay, but at the correct time”, said a club statement. “Our fans have been amazing throughout the whole pandemic and we just need a tiny bit more patience and look forward to have them all with us in due course”
Access to the car park and Shay will be restricted in line with Covid-19 protocols and the club will be keeping fans updated with social media clips and messages.
