It's going to be SPOOK-tacular at Rodney Parade!
On Saturday Rodney Parade is opening the doors to ghouls and ghosts, witches and wizards, and monsters and … Morecambe FC.
We will be celebrating all-things spooky and scary with our spook-tacular fan zone in the marquee and we will also be holding a half time competition where YOU could win a free Clwb Spytty Membership pack.
HALF TIME COMPETITION
We will be inviting three of best-dressed, halloween-themed, young supporters to join us on the pitch at half time and the one who can make our resident Scaredy-Dog Spytty the Dog jump most will win a FREE Clwb Spytty membership pack!
We would LOVE for you to join in! If you want to be part of our half time competition, then come along to the marquee dressed and grotesque to register your interest with the Newport City Radio Team.
Be prepared to head to pitch side at half time as you attempt to frighten Spytty the Dog. There will be prizes for everyone who takes part and Clwb Spytty Membership package for the winner!
Already know you want to take part? Email firstname.lastname@example.org now!
But what else is happening around Rodney Parade?
FAMILY FRIENDLY MARQUEE AND FAN ZONE
Newport City Radio will be hosting their match preview show this evening from the We Fight Any Claim Marquee. There will be a LIVE Music guest and you can also enjoy team news, an interview with first team players, and some fantastic entertainment. We are playing music from our long list of fright-night specials and we'll be taking requests.
Can't make it? You can listen to the Match Day Warm Up live online.
We’ve invited friends from JP Entertainment and Newport Live to join us. The activities will begin at 1.30pm and will be in the marquee and (weather permitting) on the grass.
As part of the activities in the marquee, there will be face-painting meaning you can join in with all the halloween fun!
The marquee will be open from midday and the entertainment starts at 1pm.
