Children set to savour taste of Europe

Children from 11 community rugby clubs and nine schools will be at the Liberty Stadium to support the Ospreys in European battle this Saturday afternoon.

The groups are all coming to the Racing Metro match under the group ticketing initiative, which offers a cheap way to experience first class rugby live, with many of them participating in a range of special match day activities that have been introduced this season by Suki Hayer, the new Ticket Sales Manager and his team.

The Clubs attending are:

Birchgrove, Bonymaen, Bryncethin, Gowerton, Loughor, Mountain Ash, Penybanc, Skewen, Swansea Uplands, Vardre, Waunarlwydd

Schools attending are:

Bishopston Comprehensive, Brynmill Primary, Burlais Primary, Pen y Fro Primary, Pontrhydyfen Primary, Pontybrenin Primary, St Josephs Primary (Clydach), St Josephs Primary (Swansea), Ysgol y Wern.

Among the activities available for groups are the traditional guard of honour and flag bearers, as well as new initiatives such as the bench warmers and fan zone, which allow children to get pitch side and closer to the action during the pre-match warm up, as well as pre-match and half-time parades.

The newly relaunched and repackaged group ticket scheme has already gone down well with schools, clubs and community groups, hundreds taking advantage of the initiative every home game to date this season.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s game against Racing Metro, Suki Hayer said:

“We are looking forward to welcoming 11 clubs and nine schools to the Liberty Stadium this weekend. For many of the children attending this will be their first opportunity to experience an Ospreys match day, and what a game for them to enjoy!

“It’s crucial that we engage with the community and encourage youngsters along to the Liberty Stadium, as they are the future of the region and the more that we can ignite that lifelong passion for the Ospreys in, the healthier our long term future will be.

“We had over 1000 guests at the Blues derby match earlier this season through this scheme and have a long list of clubs and schools attending the Ulster and Scarlets games later this month. We always welcome more clubs, schools and community groups to our matches though, so if you are involved with on and want to support your region, get in touch.”

Any supporters purchasing their tickets via the group scheme benefit from a discount of up to 25 per cent on standard match prices, with adult tickets costing £15, concessions £10 and children £4. Every single ticket issued comes with a Nando’s voucher that can be redeemed at their Wind Street restaurant for either a free half chicken or a bottomless soft drink.
