Widnes Vikings supporters will have their first opportunity to meet Stanton and Wellington Albert this Friday, when they host a special meet and greet at the Vikings Superstore, located within Tesco Extra.
The Papua New Guinea internationals will be meeting Stronghold Members and supporters from 5.30pm. With this being their first official public appearance and there being incredible backing for the brothers from supporters, this is expected to be a hugely popular event.
Guests attending the signing session will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the upcoming derby against Warrington Wolves (Friday 16th February, 7.45pm kick off) and merchandise for the pair to autograph. This Friday is the final day to purchase Advance Price One tickets for the big game (tickets purchased more than 7 days before a fixture), so supporters can grab a bargain with tickets priced at just £19 for adults, £14 for concessions and £8 for juniors.
Following the emphatic victory over Catalans Dragons there has been significant demand for tickets for the derby fixture, and the game looks set to have a big crowd and big atmosphere . Supporters who are unable to purchase their tickets for the big game in person by visiting the Vikings Superstore or via the ticket hotline are encouraged to take advantage of the online ticketing platform.
Wellington Albert says: “It was incredible to play in front of the Widnes Vikings supporters on Sunday and to be given such a fantastic reception. We can’t believe the welcome that we have had from Vikings supporters and feel very proud. I’m very excited to meet everyone on Friday.”
Stanton Albert adds: “To see the passion from the Vikings supporters on Sunday was amazing. Having seen my brother take to the field and have such a brilliant experience makes me even more excited to make my debut soon! I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to meet supporters this Friday and to thank them for the great welcome they have given us.”
