THE Giants are already putting plans in place for their Super League XII opener at home to St Helens on Sunday, February 4 (7.05).
Tickets for the big clash will go on sale when the Giants office and stadium superstore return to normal opening hours after Christmas on Thursday, January 4.
Tickets will also go on sale for the Galpharm pre-season fixture against Wigan Warriors on Sunday, January 21.
Both matches have created a great deal of interest, with Shane Elford, Darrell Griffin, Jamahl Lolesi and John Skandalis expected to make their debuts against Wigan.
But it's the Saints opener that really counts.
"There's already a lot of interest in this game and let's hope it's reflected in ticket sales," said Giants marketing chief James Brammer.
