Sheffield Tigers have confirmed an extra meeting to take place in March.

Club bosses are keen to give the team, incuding new signings Tobiasz Musielak and Craig Cook, every opportunity to race in the early stages of the season after the long winter.

Boss Simon Stead said: "This is great news for the lads, an extra meeting on the fixture list and I'm looking forward to what other riders will join the meeting to challenge our lads.

"It will be the first official Sheffield event after Todd's meeting and I'm sure the fans will be keen to come along and see the lads racing for the Steel City Open title.

"It's getting exciting now, another week has passed and I think with what's going on around the world we all need something to look forward to right now."

Normal admission prices apply for the event and more news on other riders joining the line-up will follow in due course.
