PLYMOUTH Albion are hoping to create a special atmosphere at Brickfields on Saturday when they entertain Hull Ionians in their first match of 2016.
In-form Albion, who have won their last five matches, have not played at home for four weeks and are keen to kick-off the New Year at Brickfields in style.
To try and encourage a large crowd, Albion have invited Plymouth Argyle and Plymouth Raiders players and supporters to the Hull game.
Argyle do not play until Tuesday when they host Northampton Town in League Two, while Raiders are at home on Sunday against Leeds Force.
Any adult season ticket holder of either the football club or the basketball team will be able to gain admission to Brickfields for £5 (ground only and on production on season ticket, all under-16s are free).
Albion’s own season ticket holders will also be able to bring a friend for just £5.
“We are really looking forward to our first home game of the New Year, having not played at Brickfields for four weeks,” said Albion’s director of rugby Graham Dawe.
“We hope our own season ticket holders and those of Argyle and Raiders will take up our offer this weekend and try and create a special atmosphere against Hull Ionians.
“We have got supporters who go and watch Plymouth Argyle and Plymouth Raiders and the Green Taverners have helped encourage Argyle supporters to come down to Albion over the last 12 months.
“We don’t often get a chance to invite players from both clubs to come and watch on a Saturday afternoon due to their own fixtures.
“The plan is for players of all three clubs to meet up over some food after the game. It’s a great opportunity for fellow players from different sports to catch-up and share experiences.”
