Hull FC’s annual Armed Forces fixture will return for our home clash against Leeds Rhinos this weekend with a bumper match day of activities coming up and an exclusive ticket offer for military personnel – here’s a reminded of all of the key information…
The Black & Whites return to the MKM Stadium for the first time in six weeks when they host their Yorkshire rivals on Saturday 2nd July (3.00pm), with a whole host of Armed Forces themed activities taking place in and around the ground, including the return of our Party In The Park before kick-off!
The club historically holds a close relationship with the Armed Forces, with links through the likes of club icons Jack Harrison VC MC, Johnny Whiteley MBE and Clive Sullivan MBE who served for their country, as well as current first-team player Mitieli Vulikijapani who serves as a gunner in the 47 Regiment Royal Artillery.
The Airlie Birds will be aiming to continue their fine home form displayed throughout the Betfred Super League campaign so far when the Rhinos come to town, having already claimed six victories in a row on home turf in recent months!
And those with links to the forces can help create an electric atmosphere and build a bumper crowd, with South Stand tickets for Armed Forces personnel available for just £15 in store with our Tickets For Troops offer.
Full ticket and match day details can be found below:

Armed Forces Themed Party In The Park
We’ll be making the most of the warmer summer weather as our Party In The Park returns to West Park ahead of kick off on match day, with an Armed Forces theme across the park!
Our fan parks at fixtures against Toulouse and Wigan earlier this year proved incredibly popular, with thousands of supporters making the most of the fun and activities on offer before the matches.
On top of our regular fan park activity including the chance to meet the players, inflatables, live music, games consoles, pop-up retail store, rugby games and drills, face painters, balloon moddlers, and other games and activities, we’ll have a whole host of military related displays!
Get up close and personal with military vehicles from various local regiments, Jackal 4×4 vehicles, tanks, and display helicopters.
Try your hand at the cadet climbing wall, or get hands on with a real life weapon collection.
Representatives from various local regiments and military organisations will be in attendance with pop-up displays, including the British Legion, Hull 4 Heroes, Hull 4 Ukraine, BLESMA, and army model and veterans clubs, while music will come from a military band!
Inside The Ground
The match ball will be delivered by members of the military ahead of kick-off in spectacular style, alongside very special guest and former club captain Jason Smith, who will return to the MKM Stadium as part of his Life For A Kid charitable tour, before the teams will be welcomed to the field with a military guard of honour.
Boot It with Atropa Pharmacy will have a military theme as one lucky contestant attempts to win £1000 worth of holiday vouchers courtesy of Andrew Earles Holiday by kicking the ball into a Jackal!
The club, alongside several of their main partners, will sign the Armed Force Covenant in a historic moment at half-time to demonstrate their support for the Armed Forces Community , while the Inter Services teams will display their trophies with a half-time lap of honour!
