With the Easter derby clash against the Scarlets set to draw the biggest crowd of the season, tickets have gone on sale for the South Stand, which has been given Family Stand status for the day.
- Biggest crowd of the season expected for Scarlets clash on Saturday 26th March
- South Stand has been designated as a Family Stand for this fixture only
- Due to high demand, only supporters in the South Stand will be able to access the O-Zone for this game
- Season members or ticket holders located elsewhere can swap seats for this game via the Ticket Office at no extra cost
Tickets for the Big One on Saturday 26th March (3pm KO) are already in demand, and with the higher than average attendance expected, Ospreys and Liberty Stadium management have put their heads together to put in place a plan to ensure the day goes as smoothly as possible for all supporters attending the match.
The O-Zone, the family friendly pre-match entertainment area underneath the South Stand has proven a huge success, with up to 1,000 people enjoying the interactive fun on a matchday.
For this game only, given the anticipated high demand, entrance to the O-Zone will be restricted to supporters in the South Stand only, which will act as a Family Stand for the afternoon. Season members and ticket holders located in the East or West Stand who require access to the O-Zone are able to swap seats for this game only, at no extra cost, by contacting the Ticket Office prior to matchday.
Andrew Hore, Chief Executive, Ospreys Rugby, said:
“As is always the case, interest in the Scarlets match is sky high and we are looking at our biggest crowd of the season. Given the demand, and the popularity of the O-Zone, we’ve made an early call to make the entire South Stand a designated area for families for this game only, a decision that will allow the maximum number of people to visit the O-Zone ahead of kick-off.
“It’s an Easter weekend, Saturday afternoon at 3pm, and with the race for the Champions Cup spots going all the way to the wire, it’s got all the ingredients to be a cracking family day out. We’ll have a bumper crowd present to welcome back our Six Nations boys for the first time as well.
“While the coaches and players, quite rightly, are focused entirely on preparing for Leinster this weekend, I know that supporters on both sides of the Loughor Bridge are starting to build up towards this game and the banter is starting to fly in pubs, offices and factories across south west Wales. Anticipation is growing for the Big One.”
