Rugby League – Perpignan: Why Lee’s English Supporters Can’t Buy Tickets for Match Against Catalan Dragons

It’s almost unheard of: 1,500 English supporters are expected at Gilbert-Brutus for Day 14 of the Super League this Saturday, June 15. The Dragons have decided to close the ticket office for them.

“We are closing the ticket office for supporters of the Lee Club!”, announced this Monday June 10, Christophe Levy, commercial director of the Catalan Dragons. This result is very rare, which cannot be said to be serious. After all, it represents an unprecedented situation. “The club has no choice. If we continue, we risk being invaded and we don’t want the feeling of playing. It’s an important match, especially as we need supporters to support our tracks.”, he adds. Of course the match between the Dragons, who are 5th in the Super League and the Panthers, who are 9th in the competition, is very important, but what brings 13 fans from the suburbs of Manchester in droves is not just a sporting issue. With Le Club playing in the Championship for the second year in a row, supporters will want to take advantage of this spring trip to spend a weekend under the Catalan sun. and sunbathing on cafe terraces.

We have already sold 1500 tickets at the Lee Club

So the match on June 15 was long in the calendar of British viewers. “In mid-June, this match is obviously packed with English people, but it’s unheard of, we’ve already sold 1,500 tickets at the club, twice as many as Warrington. It’s over, if the supporters want tickets, they’ll have them. The ticket counters have to take them if they’re left.”, continues Christophe Levy. The Catalan Dragons club are now counting on a strong mobilization of blood and gold to replace the pack of unleashed Panthers. Saturday’s match at Gilbert-Brutus will be sold out with 11,000 spectators.
