Knights fans will be back in the stands for home games from next weekend.

The Round 9 clash with the Paramatta Eels was originally to be played on the Central Coast, but will now take place at McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday 12 July.

The Bulldogs match in Round 11 will be played at the Knights home ground on Sunday 26 July.

With venue capacity capped at 7,500, access to the two matches will be restricted to members only.

“It’s important we look after the supporters and partners who have stood by us through numerous challenges in 2020, and this is the first step,” Knights CEO Mr Philip Gardner said.

“There will be no general admission tickets sold for our upcoming games with the Eels and Bulldogs.

“Our passionate and committed members are the heart and soul of the club. They had the option of taking a refund but they didn’t and now they’ll be the first to return to McDonald Jones Stadium.

“I have no doubt they will make the noise worthy of a 30-thousand sell out, creating a special atmosphere and sea of red and blue.”

A limited number of tickets will be made available to commit members, with tickets to be allocated by ballot conducted by Ticketmaster.
