Rugby League: Warriors set to do battle in London

Expat rugby league fans are in for a real treat. Wigan Warriors are coming to London in a groundbreaking Super League game with Catalans Dragons on 5th September.



Fantastic news for Aussie expat rugby league fans starved of quality footy – The Wigan Warriors host the Catalan Dragons on Saturday 5th September in a high profile Super League clash at The Den in SE16, London. A big advertising campaign is now well underway in the Capital to spread the word.

Spearheading the ‘London Calling’ campaign is a high impact range of adverts at London Bridge Station, one of the busiest train stations in the UK with over  1 million customers passing through the station each week and just four minutes from The Den.

Complementing the activity at London Bridge is an extensive campaign in South East regional media which sees the Warriors displayed in a range of publications and What’s On guides, as well as in the London Boroughs of Lewisham and Southwark.

Wigan Warriors Marketing Director Simon Collinson said: “The club are leaving no stone unturned as we look to spread the word that Super League is coming to London.

“On a weekend where there is no Premier League or Championship football in the Capital, it is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the Wigan Club and Rugby League to the people of London.

“This advertising campaign integrates with a big digital and social campaign and is underpinned by the positive work we are already doing with community clubs, Try Tag Rugby, Marie Curie, the business community and Millwall FC and will give us every chance to increase our reach in the South East. It going to be a great day and we look forward to hosting another fantastic event.”
