Hull KR season ticket prices to rise 10%
HULL KR have confirmed season ticket prices are to rise by 10 per cent when they finally go on sale this weekend.
The passes for the new season have been made available later than usual this year, following a recent review of the club by its owners.
However, the Mail can today reveal a 10 per cent increase in prices – the first increase in cost for KR fans in three years.
The move will see the cost of buying a season pass in the popular East Stand rise from £188 to £207 for adults renewing their passes.

For new season ticket holders, the cost will be £246.
In the west stand, renewals will rise from £221 to £243, with new applications costing £289.
The club has resisted temptation to increase their prices in recent seasons, but with losses in excess of £503,000 recorded this year, chairman Neil Hudgell recently told the Mail the rise had been 'inevitable'.
To counter the price increases, the club has introduced a number of incentives to supporters, including discounts at the club's new Savile Street store and entry to prize draws for season-long benefits for those renewing within 13 days.
Passholders will also benefit from offers at local businesses and restaurants.
Marketing manager Joe Clutterbrook believes the extra, added incentives, make the passes good value.
"We thought it was important to give fans as much value as possible. That is even more important bearing in mind the current economic climate," he said.
"The incentives were all worked up before a decision was made on the price of season passes.
"The passes go on sale to coincide with the opening of our bigger and better retail shop on Savile Street."
