Pre-match and half-time entertainment at Saturday afternoon’s crunch European Rugby Champions Cup clash against Racing Metro will be provided by the Ospreys Supporters Choir.
Fresh from their successful appearance at Thursday night’s Silent Night Swansea event at the Liberty Stadium, the ever popular choir return to the home of the Ospreys and will be performing ahead of kick-off and at the break, singing a mix of traditional Welsh hymns like Calon Lan and crowd pleasers such as Delilah and a Lion King medley.
The O-Zone will be open from 1.15pm, two hours ahead of kick-off, providing a safe family friendly environment for supporters young and old to come together before the match. There’ll be some special Nando’s giveaways as well as the regular fun and games, so come along and join us nice and early.
There’s plenty going on in the Club Shop as well, with free Segafredo coffee sampling from 12:30pm right through until kick off. Fantastic Ospreys branded machines are also available for purchase at just £99, with pods costing just 30p per cup!
If you’re visiting the Club Shop, keep an eye out for player appearances from Duncan Jones and Dan Baker (1.30pm-2.15pm) and Nicky Smith and Aaron Jarvis (2.15pm-3.00pm), who will be in store signing the new 2015 Ospreys calendar.
On a busy matchday, the activity continues through to half-time with a pitchside parade of the hundreds of children who attending the match with their school or club.
Post-match, the focus is on the home of the Ospreys Supporters Club, the Riverside Lounge to the rear of the East Stand, where the special guest will be Dmitri Arhip, collecting the Player of the Month Award. The Riverside is open to supporters of both teams, and always offers a warm and traditional rugby club welcome.
With a combination of pre-Christmas shoppers at the Morfa Parc Shopping Park, plus the matchday crowds, the roads around the stadium are expected to be busier than normal in the build up to the match so supporters are advised to leave extra time for their journey. The council operated car-park adjacent to the city centre park and ride, opposite the stadium, is open and operating exclusively for those attending the match.
