JAMAICAN YORKSHIRE COMMUNITY BEHIND THE GAME
Jamaican community support Friday's international game in Wakefield
The Yorkshire Jamaican communities fully support the big Wales-Jamaica international game this Friday night in Wakefield (7.30pm kick-off) and plan to add a little bit of colour and spice to the crowd and half-time entertainment.
Wales Rugby League CEO Chris Thair said: "We have provided small financial support to some local groups in Yorkshire with Jamaican heritage to help promote the game this Friday and they have done a wonderful job to date.
"Coaches have been organised to the game and the half-time entertainment has been fully handed over to local groups. Carnival costumes, dancers and a singer are planned and it should really add to the occasion.
"Wales-Jamaica will be a great event and, to aid the sports development in Jamaica and internationally, I would urge people to come along. Wales are current European Champions and Jamaica beat Ireland last week, so it is all set up to be a good game of rugby.
Thair continued: "This will be the only international sporting event in Yorkshire this weekend and Wales-Jamaica in Wakefield probably would not happen again this century. This unique occasions should be celebrated by all and prices are set a very affordable rate to encourage groups and families."
The clash kicks off at 7.30pm this Friday night at Belle Vue Stadium, Wakefield. Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and concessions and £5 for children. Pay on the night or buy online in advance (this is recommended) by clicking on https://wildcats.mysportstickets.co.uk.
