Wakefield Trinity’s Be Well Support Stadium, better known as Belle Vue, seats 9,333.
When the 1990s indie cover band grace the turf ahead of kick-off at 3pm, it will mark their biggest live performance since forming.
Lead guitarist Adam King said: “I rang around the guys, they were all over the moon, they couldn’t believe it.
“We were all buzzing, it was awesome. I’m still buzzing now just thinking about it.”
The quintet consists of Adam on lead guitar, vocalist Kieran Wormald, rhythm guitarist Stewart McGill, bassist Paul Walton and drummer Jake Ward.
It’s a historic game that the group will be warming up the crowd for, as it will mark the last game before the East Stand of Wakefield Trinity is demolished ahead of redevelopments.
They have been booked to perform a set before kick-off and will then deliver a second performance at the clubhouse after the final whistle.
Adam said: “We started a band about two and a half years ago, a few of us knew each other, the rest of us didn’t.
“For a few of them, it was their first time picking up an instrument. Our bassist had never even plucked a string before, so it was all new for him.”
Sunday morning rehearsals at St Joseph’s Catholic Club in Hunslet, however, allowed the more inexperienced members to master their role.
Adam said: “We enjoy it and get paid for it. It’s a fun hobby, but it’s getting to the point where we’re getting a lot of bookings and we’re getting a little busier.
“The one we do at Wakefield Trinity is going to be important.”
