'This River' set for return as new wave of

This River return to the Supporters Village on Thursday night when it opens for business ahead of the Ospreys LV= Cup clash with Northampton Saints (KO 7.45pm).

The popular local band will perform for the second time this season after going down a storm ahead of the opening Magners League game of the year against Ulster in September.

The Supporters Village will return to its regular spot in the West Stand Car Park for the game, opening for business early at 5.45pm to allow those heading to the match straight from work to enjoy a pint and the best pre-match entertainment, with the band playing right up to the final whistle while some of the non-playing Ospreys will be pulling pints and mingling with fans ahead of kick-off

The ever popular interactive Kidszone will also be operating in the South and West Stand Concourse areas, featuring a range of rugby themed inflatables such as try line tussle, bungee run, and passing targets, with additional inflatable fun in the Village, providing great fun for kids and older Ospreys alike.

Ospreys Managing Director, Roger Blyth said:

“Thursday night’s game is a very unusual one for us this season, as it is the only home game so far this year that isn’t being televised live, so the only way for fans to see the game will be to come along to the Liberty Stadium and cheer us on.

“We’ve enjoyed good fortunes in this tournament in its previous format, and there have been numerous memorable games along the way. Now, we are hoping that the new-look tournament will allow us to enjoy similar occasions.

“We’re all excited here about the prospect of watching the new wave of Ospreys in competitive action on Thursday night. We’ve got some excellent, local, young talent here at the region who are chomping at the bit to pull on the Ospeys shirt and I think it’s going to be an outstanding opportunity to see them test themselves against quality opposition from across the bridge.”
