There'll be plenty of entertainment for all the family at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday when the Ospreys entertain Toulon in the Heineken Cup (KO 3.30pm).
In addition to the regular activity at the Supporters Village, the Ospreys Supporters Choir and gymnasts from Swansea’s West Street Gymnastics Club, will be performing ahead of kick-off to help create a special atmosphere. After the final whistle Ryan Jones will collect his OSC/Worthington’s Player of the Month award from a special guest at the Riverside Lounge, and fans are welcome to pop along and enjoy the post-match atmosphere.
The afternoon will kick-off in the Supporters Village at 1.30pm, with live music to warm up even the coldest Ospreys fan ahead of the game, with an appearance by highly acclaimed Swansea rockers The Fevers, playing an eclectic mix of music past and present, including covers from a wide range of acts including The Smith, The Sex Pistols, Oasis, The Batles, Simple Minds, AC/DC, Lady GaGa, Duran Duran and the Killers among others.
The interactive KidsZone will also open for action two hours before the game featuring a range of rugby themed inflatables such as try line tussle, bungee run, and passing targets, providing great fun for kids and older Ospreys alike.
The focus will switch to inside he ground at 2.55pm with a performance by the Ospreys Supporters Choir, their third at the Liberty Stadium since their debut ahead of the historic Ospreys V Australia clash in November 2006.
Originally formed that year in order to compete in the S4C television programme Codi Canu, the Ospreys Supporters Choir continued performing once the series had finished in 2008 due to the desire of many members to keep the choir going in order to indulge their mutual love of rugby and singing!
On Saturday they will perform some familiar songs for supporters to join in, led by their new musical director Aled Hopton.
They will be joined pitchside ahead of kick-off by gymnasts from Swansea's West Street Gymnastics Club. Originally known as Gowerton Gymnastics Club, they were founded 34 years ago, growing as a club before moving to their current home in West Street. After receiving grant funding from the Welsh Assembly Government to refurbish their premises last year, they were formally reopened in September by Ospreys Tom Smith and Jonathan Spratt.
There is also a chance for a fan to win a pair of half-season tickets, allowing them to see all the remaining scheduled fixtures for free. All you need to do is participate in the Blackout, and if you are lucky, a non-playing member of the squad will pick you from the crowd to compete for the prize.
JUST REMEMBER TO WEAR BLACK!!
The new OSC club-house in the Riverside Lounge will once again be open after the final whistle for those who enjoy a more traditional rugby post-match gathering. Ospreys players will make a post-match appearance, including Ryan Jones who will collect his award which was voted for by you, the fans.
Tickets are still available to buy in person at the Liberty Stadium Ticket Office, online at www.ospreysrugby.com or via the Ticket Hotline on 08700 400.
