DELIGHTED Huddersfield Giants officials today announced record corporate attendance figures ahead of Saturday's Sky Super League showdown with Leeds Rhinos (6.00).
All 26 private boxes have been sold for the first time for a Giants' Super League clash, while the McAlpine banqueting suite will serve a full house of 500.
The club also revealed that all the `Director for a Day' packages have gone.
It's a clear sign of the `feelgood' factor that now exists at the top-flight club, with Sunday's superb 32-24 triumph over Wigan having given the Giants a massive financial boost.
And commercial manager Stan Sharp admits that the level of demand for this Saturday's game on the corporate front has taken everyone by surprise.
"We've always targeted the Leeds game as being our biggest day," said Sharp.
"But since Sunday's win over Wigan the telephone has been non-stop and we're now turning people away.
"Every corporate package has been snapped up, which means we've had to open up the Panasonic Suite.
"And the knock-on effect of that is that the stadium hotel is full as well!"
Giants staff admit they are unsure of how many fans will come through the turnstiles.
The fact the match is to be screened live on Sky TV on a Saturday evening could have a negative effect.
But they will be hoping to approach a figure similar to the 8,297 which watched the Bradford Bulls McAlpine clash on May 18.
"This is only the second time we've been featured live on Sky in our opening 17 matches, so the novelty value of watching us on TV may appeal to some," added Sharp.
"But there's nothing to match the atmosphere of being at the game itself."
