Giants Spokesman Jonathan Wilkinson said:
?This is a fantastic offer and one which we hope will have a good take up from the people of Huddersfield. For just ?9, Senior Citizens can come along to the Saints game and by taking advantage of our 'Under 12's are free' promotion, bring children with them. There are lots of features happening at the Stadium on matchday, with the emphasis on lots of fun and entertainment.
As well as the exciting Super League game with the Saints and the parade of the ex-players from both sides, there will be lots going on in our Family Stand including face-painting, giveaways and competitions. Our mascots Big G & Panda Pop will be on hand to say hello as will our cheer girls and helpers. It will be a great day of fun for the family.?
