*Supporters who have bought tickets at the £15 special price in the Core Stand Lower can remain in their seats for the Catalans Dragons game, but Season Card Holders who enter the stadium early for the Women's game will have to vacate and re-scan in after the conclusion of the Giants Women's vs Leeds Rhinos Women's match, if your Season Card is not located in the Core Stand Lower North.
This measure has been taken to ensure that supporters can still watch the Women's game from the Core Stand Lower North, and then return to their Season Card seats, in the Chadwick Lawrence or the Core Stand Lower South.
If your Season Card is located in the Core Stand Lower North, there is no need to scan back out and in.*
