Doncaster RLFC this week launched an innovative season ticket scheme - Challenge 1000 - in an attempt to boost attendance figures.

Season ticket prices have been slashed for next year’s League One campaign, while children will be admitted free of charge.

An adult season ticket would have cost £150 this year, but next season the price could be as little as £30 - depending on how many fans buy them.

If the Dons sell 1000 or more season tickets, which is the club’s target, fans will pay £30.

If they sell 750-999, the cost is £40.

If they 500-749, it is £50.

And if they sell less than 500, the price is £60.

The first 250 children under the age of 16 will also receive free Dons season tickets and that number will be raised depending on the demand of tickets.

Club bosses want to improve the atmosphere at the Keepmoat Stadium following discussions with a fan representatives.

Seventy fans bought season tickets during the club’s launch night on Wednesday.

The Dons this week completed the permanent signings of former Castleford prop Ryan Boyle, Hull FC utility back Connor Bower and Hull KR half back Liam Harris.

Jez Litten, Jordan Lane, Ross Osborne and Jack Sanderson have all joined the Dons on season-long-loans from Hull FC.
