Season-ticket reminder - Magners League

With the Ospreys entertaining Glasgow at the Liberty Stadium in the first Magners League semi-final on Friday night, the region has issued a reminder to season-ticket holders that the match is NOT covered by their season-ticket.

A significant number of calls and emails have been received in the Ospreys office querying this issue, and we would like to take this opportunity to reiterate that this is a Magners League hosted event, as opposed to a league home match, and as such does not form part of the season-ticket package.

All literature relating to the season-ticket package highlights in the terms and conditions that the season-ticket covers nine Magners League fixtures, three Heineken Cup pool fixtures, two LV= Cup pool fixtures and a pre-season fixture, offering substantial savings on matchday ticket prices. What it does not cover, is knockout fixtures in any of the three competitions, such as a Heineken Cup quarter-final or a Magners League play-off, fixtures which are in addition to scheduled season fixtures and are totally dependent on the team's progression. However, under the terms and conditions, season-ticket holders are offered first refusal and the opportunity to reserve their regular seats ahead of them being released to general sale. This is standard practice for season-tickets across all sports, as it is not practical, or indeed value for money, for an organisation to factor in matches which may never take place into a season-ticket package.

The Magners League play-off fixtures are NOT Ospreys or Leinster hosted matches, they are Magners League events, and as such, both our fixture and the Leinster V Munster match at the RDS are subject to the same conditions. As such, we note with interest that the game in Dublin is approaching a 20,000 sell-out despite season-tickets not being valid for this match, as their fans look to urge their team on to the Magners League Grand Final.

Clearly, it is in the best interests of the players to be able to take to the field on Friday evening backed by a sizeable crowd, and we would urge all our supporters who have still to purchase a ticket for the match to do so now, including season-ticket holders. Your backing can make a huge difference, and means everything to the team.

Tickets are still available to buy at the Liberty Stadium office, which will be open on Friday from 10am until after kick-off, or via the Ticket Hotline, on 08700 400 004.
