The Halifax RLFC first team squad will be making a special appearance at The Piece Hall on Friday 22 September to meet supporters and engage with the Calderdale community.

The evening will commence at 7pm and is free for all to attend. Come and mingle with professional rugby league players, set against the backdrop of the newly reopened Piece Hall, the gem in the town’s architectural crown. Halifax are on the eve of their final game of the season, a mouth watering clash with Championship rivals Featherstone Rovers at The Shay, with the winner taking an extra £50,000 funding for 2018.

The team have battled hard all year long, achieving what many thought impossible by making The Qualifiers, earning not only games with Super League teams such as Warrington Wolves and Catalan Dragons, but also the respect and admiration of their critics.

The team will be in The Piece Hall courtyard from 7pm on Friday 22 September, with a meet and greet and skills demonstration.
