IT’S a take on the famous cartoon hit ‘Wacky Races’ as you’ve never seen it before!
Riding the claret and gold car to promote the much-anticipated ‘Return of the Giants’ to the Galpharm Stadium are three of the club’s top stars portrayed in cartoon form.
Caricatures of fans’ favourites Eorl Crabtree, Kevin Brown and Leroy are seen travelling back to the Galpharm for the homecoming Super League clash against Hull KR on Sunday, July 31.
It will be the first game back in the town in two months after a three-game stay at The Shay in Halifax to enable the Galpharm pitch to be re-laid.
The cartoon will be on all the official posters promoting the ‘Return of the Giants’, with fans encouraged to download and distribute the poster in their workplace and surrounding areas. The downloadable poster can be found in the special Homecoming section of the site at www.giantsrl.com/homecoming.
“The momentum ahead of the ‘Return of the Giants’ is gathering pace with a great amount of interest in the game,” said Giants marketing chief James Brammer. “We wanted to do something different for this special match and are pleased to launch the theme featuring Eorl, Kevin and Leroy.
“It’s just one of a number of exciting initiatives to be launched ahead of our return and, with the special-priced tickets, we encourage as many fans as possible to come to what is sure to be a memorable occasion.”
