DELIGHTED Giants chief executive Ralph Rimmer has admitted to being `overwhelmed' by the early demand for season tickets.
Despite an increase in Super League prices and the decision to stick with 5.30pm kick-offs, the overall response from fans appears to have been positive.
Tickets went on sale at 9am this morning, with Rimmer reporting a constant stream of supporters coming into the club's McAlpine offices to snap them up.
And the Giants chief believes this bodes well for the future.
"Staff have been busy since first thing this morning and there appears to be no let-up," said Rimmer.
"I admit I'm overwhelmed by the initial response. I just hope it continues.
"It's a fantastic feeling and sums up the excitement that now exists around the club.
"Last season's successes in Super League have clearly given us a head start in terms of marketing season tickets for next year.
"But I think the level of demand also reflects the way our signings for 2004 have been received.
"It would appear the fans can't wait for next season to get under way."
However, there do remain a band of fans who are far from happy with the prices or the decision to keep to 5.30.
"We do appreciate that some fans remain unhappy," added Rimmer.
"Unfortunately, we can't please everyone, but telling us how they feel does show people care about the club."
