Ready for tapes up...


Tigers fans will have the chance to see their new-look team in action for the first time on Thursday.

The 2014 side will take to the track at Owlerton for the press and practice session and there will be an opportunity to mix with the shale stars afterwards.

Riders will taketo the track at 5.30pm and the stadium will be open to the general public.

Skipper Simon Stead said: “It will be good to get the lads together, I’m looking forward to it after a long winter. We’ve been on track with some of the lads but it will be nice to be together and we are looking forward to seeing the supporters.”

Fans can purchase season tickets on the night. All season ticket holders this year will be offered a range of benefits including a free programme, discounts at the club shop and half-price parking on race night. Sheffield’s opening meeting of the season is the Air Fence Fund Bonanza on March 27.
