SALFORD RED DEVILS VS HULL KR – TICKET INFORMATION

The Entertainers are back! 

Tickets are now on sale for our Round 2 clash against Hull Kingston Rovers on Thursday 23rd February, in the Betfred Super League.

We return to the Salford Stadium and need your unwavering support to kickstart our home campaign in the best possible fashion. 

Paul Rowley’s side have built on last season’s success by retaining a lot of the current squad and making some exciting new additions. Oliver Partington, Adam Sidlow, Andrew Dixon, Sam Stone, Ben Hellewell and Ellis Longstaff have arrived to bolster an already impressive looking side.

Hull KR will pose a tricky test for the Red Devils, but with the roaring home crowd behind them, the team will look to build some positive momentum at the start of the season.

In celebration of our 150th year and the opening home fixture of the season, we will be opening the East Stand to host community groups through our Building the Future initiative – a project that has linked over 100 local schools and their pupils with an engaging programme of activity through rugby league.

However, we will be extending our regular offer of kids go free to any youth groups; including uniform groups (E.G. Scouts, Guides), community clubs and schools.

Tickets in the East Stand are £5 junior (U16s) and £10 adults (17+), but like previously, our Building the Future offer means kids go absolutely free if part of an organised group. For every 10 children, one adult can also go free, with any additional adults still able to access the community offer.

If you would like to apply for the Building the Future offer, please click HERE. Successful applicants will be notified in due course.

Please note there will be unreserved seating in the East Stand, and migration is strictly prohibited between stands.

The South and West Stand will be open as normal.

THE TURMERIC CO. REMAINS THE OFFICIAL TURMERIC SUPPLIER FOR SALFORD RED DEVILS

Salford Red Devils has continued its partnership with The Turmeric Co., seeing the functional drinks brand provide the Betfred Super League side with nutritional shots for the remainder of the 2023 season.

The health drinks will be offered to the players in convenient 60ml bottles which are densely packed with highly nutritious and purposefully selected ingredients.

Each shot contains raw turmeric root combined with black pepper and flax oil to optimise the bioavailability of curcumin; the active ingredient found in raw turmeric.

The Club will experience an array of great benefits from the shots, including recovery and immunity support.

The Turmeric Co.’s Raw Turmeric Vitamin C & D3 shot can also support the players with their bone health, having recently been recognised by the Royal Osteoporosis Society.

The shots come in three other flavours, including Raw Turmeric Original, Raw Turmeric & Ginger, and Raw Turmeric & Beetroot. Each flavour provides a variety of health benefits to give players a well-rounded boost to their nutrition.

Founded by former West Bromwich Albion and Wales striker, Thomas ‘Hal’ Robson-Kanu, The Turmeric Co. supports a wide range of professional sports teams and individuals, including fellow rugby league sides St Helens and Wigan Warriors, rugby union sides Sale Sharks and Leicester Tigers and Premier League football teams Brentford and Everton

Thomas ‘Hal’ Robson-Kanu, founder and CEO of The Turmeric Co., said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Salford Red Devils over the past year and are grateful to be nutritionally supporting the recovery, immunity, energy and performance the team.

“With the recent Rugby League World Cup, the sport is in a very exciting time of growth and opportunity, which we are thrilled to be part of.

“Nutrition is essential in supporting players both on and off the pitch, especially with the level of athleticism we are seeing in modern day sport. We look forward to another successful season in this meaningful partnership.”

Hannah Edge, Partnerships Manager at Salford Red Devils, said: “I am absolutely delighted we are continuing our partnership with The Turmeric Co. Our Strength & Conditioning team have constantly stressed the importance of recovery and the Turmeric shots are a vital part of that routine.

KALLUM WATKINS NAMED SALFORD RED DEVILS CAPTAIN – BRODIE CROFT AND MARC SNEYD CONTINUE AS VICE-CAPTAINS

Kallum Watkins has been named Salford Red Devils captain for the 2023 Betfred Super League campaign, with Brodie Croft and Marc Sneyd to continue their role as vice-captains.

The England international returned from a long-term knee injury earlier last season and enjoyed a stellar campaign. Despite being a natural centre, Watkins’ move to the second-row has added a new dimension to his game and gave Paul Rowley’s side another deadly threat.

Watkins began his junior career at Salford after playing for his local team, Langworthy Reds. After winning multiple major honours – including six Super League titles – with Leeds Rhinos, he moved back to the Red Devils and instantly became a fan favourite.

The 31-year-old has gone on to make 30 appearances for the Club and played a major role in our run to the playoff semi-final during 2022.

Like the previous campaign, Brodie Croft and Marc Sneyd will continue their roles as vice-captain. Our half-back pairing were in electric form last season, with Sneyd scoring a Super League Club record number of points and Croft becoming only the second player in Salford’s history to win the Man of Steel award.

Reacting to becoming Club captain, Watkins said: “It’s a massive honour and I’m truly grateful to the coaching staff, the team and the Club for giving me this opportunity to be captain. It’s something I’ll take with both hands.

“For me, it’s just about being myself. I’ve got the opportunity to lead the team and now I’ve got to lead by my actions and get the team where they need to be.”

Head Coach, Paul Rowley has also explained why Watkins is the perfect fit. He said: “Choosing the right man to lead our team in 2023 was a process that proved fulfilling and enjoyable.

“Over the last 12 months, our players have developed and matured to the point where we were encouraged to have several options to choose from.

“Our vice-captains will remain the same, as both were fantastic on and off the field last year – and if it’s not broken, then I won’t try to fix it.

“The privilege of leading our group has been given to Kallum Watkins, who is quite simply everything you would want from a leader.

“He drives standards and is held in the upmost respect by his teammates and all our staff. It was a privilege to inform Kal and I’m looking forward to seeing him lead out the team.”
