HUDDERSFIELD Giants are looking to build significantly on their opening home attendance against Hull this weekend.
A highly encouraging 6,610 were at the Galpharm eight days ago for the club's opening Super League X encounter.
But hopes are high that this figure will be smashed when the newly-crowned world champions Leeds Rhinos come to town on Sunday (3.00).
While Giants coach Jon Sharp was today checking out the fitness of his players following Friday's unlucky 34-24 defeat at St Helens, the club's marketing team were putting their final plans in place to attract as many extra fans through the turnstiles as possible.
And they believe that the Hull attendance has provided them with a positive start.
"Overall, we were hugely encouraged by the turn-out against Hull," said marketing officer Jonathan Wilkinson.
"To say the weather forecast didn't make pleasant reading, we were delighted that almost 5,000 home fans were in the stadium.
"Hopefully, they all enjoyed their day and will be back again.
"We're continually looking to improve our matchday experience and we've got bigger plans for the games ahead.
"Next Sunday, for instance, we're billing as ladies' day and we've already embarked on a promotional campaign to get as many ladies down to the stadium as possible.
"But I think the mere fact we'll be hosting the new rugby league world club champions will be enough to put extra numbers on the gate.
"This promises to be another fantastic occasion and we would love to see as many fans there as possible."
