More than 1,500 supporters from 14 different clubs across the Region will enjoy next Saturday’s big derby clash at the Liberty Stadium as part of the Show Your Colours campaign.
That’s the biggest number of ticket sales ever recorded for a single fixture by Ospreys in the Community, with an incredible 36 different age groups/teams represented as the Ospreys take on big local rivals the Scarlets.
Show Your Colours is supported by Hamilton Developments, the Ospreylian based property development company providing free buses to the game for rugby clubs who booked more than 50 tickets on a first come first served basis.
With DJ Thomas, the Ospreys’ official coach partner, supplying 28 coaches on the day, the success of the initiative, which has helped to drive the attendance to ensure the biggest crowd at a Regional ground this season is evident.
The club who bring the most support on Saturday will also win the same amount of tickets to watch Ospreys take on the Dragons at the Liberty Stadium in March, with the winner to be revealed after the Scarlets game.
Paul Whapham, Head of Ospreys in the Community, said:
“We’ve had a fantastic response to the Show Your Colours initiative and we are delighted to confirm that as it grows ever bigger and better, that we are at record numbers for this game. Many thanks go to Hamilton Developments and DJ Thomas for their support, which has made this possible, and to the participating clubs who are going to enjoy being part of such a big day.
“Christmas and rugby goes hand in hand, and with the Scarlets game being played the Saturday before the big day for the first time, what better way is there to kick off the festive season. Our community clubs are going to be well represented and with tickets for the game continuing to fly out, it should be a fantastic occasion.”
