A fan zone in the south east corner will feature Red Bull DJ truck, Red bull wings team , Errea Passing challenge and an Easter egg drop, where fans can received a Warriors prize by donating a chocolate egg which will be donated to children at three hospitals.

Wigan band Boomin will help get the party started and young fans attending Max's Club can take part in an Easter egg hunt, from 1pm.

DW Stadium Ticket office manager, Michael Jolliffe, said: “We have limited availability in the East and South stands now, so anyone who is looking to collect tickets on the day, we strongly advise them to give themselves plenty of time before kick-off to do so as the Ticket Office will be extremely busy come game day.”
