"My Mate Needs To See This ...." Initiative

The ‘Wightlink’ Warriors and Wizards have launched an incentive for current fans to introduce their friends to speedway and the Warrior Way at the Andrew Younie Smallbrook Stadium in Ryde. The offer will allow supporters to quite literally bring their mates as guests of the club and introduce them to the sport.

All requests for guests to be admitted on a complimentary basis must be made from an existing supporter via email to or via the club’s Facebook page 'Island Speedway's Wight Warriors'. The idea is for speedway fans to show their friends and family the fun packed adventure on offer on a Thursday night in the hope that they will then become regulars. Every supporter can bring an additional family as their guests (2 adults plus kids) as long as the supporter contacts the club by email or Facebook before 3.30 p.m. on race day. ‘Wightlink’ Warriors Commercial Director Barry Bishop said, “This incentive is very similar to “bring my class” and is really just an extension of that. I hope that fans will use this opportunity to introduce their friends and families to the Warrior Way and the Thursday night fun we have using the “My mate needs to see this” idea. We already know that this type of scheme works, our fans base continues to grow this year (higher than the last two years) and we hope this incentive will enable more islanders to find the ‘Wightlink’ Warriors the place to be on a Thursday night. Martin and I know our loyal fan base will join us in making the most of the idea and let’s see how it runs. If fans want to bring friends and family please email or contact the club via our Facebook page before 3.30 on race day and we will ensure that the entrance gate staff have the guests’ names to allow complimentary admission. With a cracking match coming up this week against Coventry, come on; bring a new Warrior on Thursday”.
