Ospreys MDG

Ospreys v Saracens - Matchday guide

We're back in the Liberty for our first home game of 2020, and we're taking on the reigning double champions, Saracens. 

Club Shop opens
Our club shop will be open bright and early on Saturday. Pop in and pick up some brand-new Ospreys gear to wear and show your support in the stands. Grab yourself some Ospreys European kit with 40% off! Season Members and Plus Members can stack up their own discount to save even more. 

Ticket Office opens
If you haven't bought your tickets to the game yet head over to our ticket office which will be open from 10:00am on Saturday morning. You can also pick up your paid for tickets here. 

Ozone opens
The Ozone will be the place to be ahead of the game. There's a host of games to be played to keep everyone entertained and get your camera ready as there'll be an opportunity to meet Ospreys players for pictures and autographs. The Ospreys Supporters Choir will be in attendance here too, performing rousing songs to add to the atmosphere here before the game. 

Transport safety
We have teamed up with our valued premium partners, RNA, and Swansea Council to launch a transport safety day. 

We'll be joined by key transport businesses to support the "Operation Close Pass" campaign ahead of kick off. Come and take a look at the impressive trucks from RNA, AT & Morgan, Tom Pritchard, Jonathan Bowen, Lloyds Commercial & Asset Finance, Johnston Sweepers, Gavin Griffiths, and more which will be stationed around the stadium. Come explore and learn about all the different vehicles, and you may spot an Osprey or two wandering around too!

There'll be a transport and cycle safety activity in the car park, so be sure to head on over and learn about road safety. The interactive displays and exhibits will let you climb into the cabin of a truck, or sit on a bike, and experience the realities, and dangers, of the road for both motorists and cyclists.

Hospitality opens
If you'll be joining us in our hospitality lounges, hospitality reception will be open from 11am. We look forward to seeing you! To check out some of our fantastic Hospitality deals coming up throughout the season, visit ospreysrugby.com/hospitality.
