Ospreys Set For Middlesex 7's - Tickets Now On

The Ospreys have accepted an invitation to send a team to the Middlesex 7's, which this year takes place on Saturday 16th August at Twickenham.

 It will be the first time that the region has competed in Europe's leading 7's tournament, which is also the most famous rugby charity event in the world. A full day of top class rugby at the home of English rugby kicks off at 10.30am, and concludes with a final presentation at 6:30pm. More definite details regarding pools & fixture times will be confirmed in the near future. Ospreys Elite Performance Director Andrew Hore commented: "We are delighted to accept this invitation from Premier Rugby to compete in the 2008 Middlesex 7's and are looking forward to returning to Twickenham so soon after our fantastic afternoon there in April when we brought the EDF Energy Cup back to Wales. This is probably the most prestigious sevens tournament in world rugby, with a fantastic history and a winners list that reads like a who's who of rugby. The last time we travelled to Twickenham we received fantastic support, with our fans helping to generate a great atmosphere and we'll be hoping to see many of them there once again for what will be a great family day out." The Middlesex 7's was first contested back in 1926, and has been held every year since without exception, including throughout the Second World War. The tournament grew over the years until at its peak, more than 300 teams would participate annually. Since the onset of professional rugby organisers have restructured the competition, with the focus now on the leading English clubs plus selected invited guests. In addition, it has been switched from its traditional end of season date in recent years to become a key fixture in the build up to the new season. Welsh successes in the competition have been few and far between. Cardiff RFC were crowned champions back in 1939, whilst London Welsh were victorious on eight occasions between 1930 and 1984, including a hat-trick of wins between 1971 and 1973. TICKETS Tickets for the event are now on sale from our Stadium Ticket Office, and can be purchased over the counter, over the phone (08700 400004), or over the internet (click here). NOTE - 2 for 1 offer for all Season Ticket Holders (not Ospreys Members on this occasion).  This means that all season ticket holders are entitled to 2 adult tickets for the price of 1 (no junior tickets can be mixed with this offer).  There is no limit on the number of tickets that can be purchased with this offer, providing your season card is presented upon each transaction. Ticket prices are outlined below:
