Wigan Warriors have teamed up with Tetley’s, the club’s ‘Official Beer’, to launch the first of four ‘Tetley’s Talk Warriors’ nights that give fans the opportunity to question their favourite players and win some fantastic prizes.
The first event takes place at Sam’s Bar, Orchard Street, Wigan, on Tuesday 12th April (starting at 7.00pm) with tickets only available in advance from the venue, where they are currently on sale priced at £3.
The events are part of the club’s push to meet fans within the community and a chance for supporters to quiz and have their picture taken with their favourite player, as well as win some great rugby league prizes and Tetley’s giveaways.
Tickets will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis to the first 170 people - the price includes a free buffet and free pint of Tetley’s or Carlsberg to be enjoyed on the night. The Q&A session will feature several first team stars – with details of the other three events to be released in due course.
Gareth Roberts, Carlsberg UK Sponsorship Controller, said: “As ‘Official Beer’ of Wigan Warriors we are delighted to be helping the club to host these four events. They promise to be extremely enjoyable evenings and we are grateful to Sam’s Bar for agreeing to stage the first event.
“All the ‘Tetley’s Talk Warriors’ nights will give the players an opportunity to thank the fans for their support and for Tetley’s to give something back to the community.”
Simon Collinson, Marketing Director at Wigan Warriors, added: “The events are a great way for us to get back into the community and meet the fans face-to-face. I am sure they will all be a huge success and the players are really looking forward to taking part.”
Doors open at Sam’s Bar at 7.00pm with the event set to begin at 7.30pm. Strictly over 18's.
