LEIGH are hoping to attract another bumper crowd when they welcome newly relegated London Broncos to the Sports Village on Sunday.

Nearly 7,500 fans were at Centurions’ first home game of the season on February 15 - a thrilling 36-24 win over Bradford Bulls. It was Leigh’s biggest home gate in 10 years.

And while London won’t bring the sort of following that Bradford did, Leigh are hoping to pass the 5,000 mark again.

The North Stand is close to selling out and the club is urging fans to buy their tickest in advance to avoid queues on the day.

Leigh’s commercial executive Amanda Lee said: “We are grateful to our fans their continued support in this landmark season for rugby league and are delighted to build upon the record-breaking crowd for the Round One fixture against Bradford Bulls. Corporate sales for the game are also very healthy.”

Centurions have won their first two games of the new season and are currently on a 12 game winning run which stretches back to last year.
