WIDNES Vikings could set a new attendance record, thanks to their sponsors, Hattons Solicitors.
The firm, which has an office in Victoria Road, Widnes, is backing a massive ticket giveaway as the Vikings hope to welcome 7,000 fans and break their National League attendance re-cord this Sunday.
Vikings' head coach Steve McCormack said: 'The supporters who have followed us all year have been magnificent and have been perfect ambassadors for the club.
'Hopefully they can continue this good work by introducing new or lapsed fans to the team of 2007.
'Hattons are renowned for their support of rugby league and this is another example of them working with a club for the benefit of the local community.'
Hattons Solicitors' Mike Denning said: 'We came to Widnes because we think it is a thriving area.
'If people want Widnes to be the best and want to be in Super League they can't do that by being sat at home.
'We're supporting the club and we want people in Widnes to do the same.'
Hattons, who are the match sponsors for this Sunday afternoon's game against Rochdale Hornets, will cover the gate receipts ensuring the Vikings benefit from the extra support without losing financially.
Mr Denning said: 'Widnes and Rochdale are married because both of the towns have suffered very badly from industrial disease. 'We want to help people who have been exposed to an asbestos product gain further compensation they may be entitled to from trusts in America.'
In a targeted promotion, Vikings' season ticket holders can get three complimentary tickets for the game, but the club wants to reach out to as many people as possible.
Fans from both clubs will be able to sit in the East Stand for just £5.
