WOLVERHAMPTON have announced reduced admission prices for Monday night’s ‘Keep Bees On Track’ challenge match against Coventry.

However, a turnstile will be available at the normal price for those wishing to donate to the Coventry fighting fund.

Wolves’ local rivals lost the use of Brandon Stadium during a turbulent winter and a campaign group was set up to assist riders who lost team places as a result, and to work on the bid to restore racing to Coventry as soon as possible.

Monday’s meeting features six of the seven riders who were due to line up for the Bees in 2017, whilst ex-Coventry man Rory Schlein steps in for Kenneth Bjerre.

The reduced admission is £15 adults, £10 concessions, £5 juniors and £1 children. Normal admission is £18, £13, £7 and £1 – the difference will be the donation.

Promoter Chris Van Straaten said: “When I saved Wolverhampton back in 1986 the first meeting back was at Brandon on an emotional night.

“To lose the Bees is a massive blow to the sport, just like it was with Cradley all those years ago.

“We are all hoping this is only a one season gap and we are more than happy to give the Bees fans another chance to support their team.

“I’m also looking forward to coming up against our old foe Colin Pratt who returns to the Coventry team manager role for the night.”
