After receiving a warm welcome in Bridgend on Thursday morning, The Italian Job will reach it's final destination on Friday when the convoy heads back to Swansea to visit Mamma Mia on Princess Way.
Ospreys players have spent the week on the road, with Neath and Bridgend the other destinations, promoting Saturday’s game against Aironi at the Liberty Stadium (KO 6.30pm), living out scenes from the 1969 classic movie starring Michael Caine and Noel Coward.
A convoy of Mini Coopers have been travelling across the region, with a Polizia BMW in hot pursuit, with the players then spending time at Italian owned restaurants and cafes where they have met fans, served coffees to commuters and helped to promote a special Italian Job offer for the Aironi game, where supporters can buy four tickets for just £10 – only £2.50 each!!
Friday morning will see the final party of players heading off from Trainer MINI on Carmarthen Road at 7.50, from where they will travel along Pentregethin Road, Mynydd Newydd Road, Heol Ddu passing Daniel James Community School and onto Mynydd Garnllwyd Road (Bishop Vaughan School), before heading down to Morriston, through Woodfield Street, onto Neath Road passing the Liberty Stadium, before turning into Pentremawr Road to pass Pentrehafod School. The convoy will then head towards town via Llangyfelach Road, travelling down High Street and Castle Street before reaching Mamma Mia at approximately 8.45am.
Among the players serving coffee and meeting fans at Mamma Mia will be Dan Biggar, Alun Wyn Jones, Shane Williams and Ryan Jones, and all supporters present will be able to collect their special ‘four tickets for £10’ voucher, which can be presented at the Liberty Stadium Ticket Office ahead of kick-off on Saturday to allow you to purchase cut-price tickets for the game.
Any fans who miss the Italian Job offer can still purchase tickets for the game at the regular price, with child prices starting at just £1 when accompanied by an adult in the Family Stand, from the Liberty Stadium Ticket Office, online, or via the Ticket Hotline on 08700 400 004.
