All the fun in the Fan Village

A TRIP to the iconic Twickenham Stadium would not be complete without spending a few hours at the stadium and the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final is no different.

Supporters will be able to mingle and enjoy a drink or two among friends – old and new in the hugely popular Aviva Premiership Rugby Fan Village in the West Car Park, with a stunning range of activities which supporters of all ages can enjoy before and after the match.

Premiership Rugby’s Head of Operations, Catherine Hall, said: "We are really excited about the day. There are lots of exciting activities being hosted by our partners and many different things going on that the fans can really look forward to.

"The Aviva Premiership Rugby Fan Village is a huge part of the day for supporters and there will be a lot of great activities and food and drink outlets for young and old to enjoy.

"We have been planning for this since December last year, and the end result is going to be a brilliant place for supporters to spend time before and after the game."

The fun begins at 11am where the Village will host fans before kick-off, until 2.30pm when the Village closes. Food and drink outlets reopen for a further two-and-a-half hours after the 2015-16 champions are confirmed.

Land Rover’s immediately recognisable Twin Terrapod makes a return. The pinnacle is when the vehicle and passengers are elevated to around 5.7m using hydraulics and an instructor showcases the vehicle’s ability to deal with difficult terrains. Also Land Rover drivers who show their key fob can get hold of a free burger and hot and cold refreshments in the Land Rover area.

The BT Sport stage will host a number of events while also being home to BT Sport for part of their live coverage on the day. Former England wing Ugo Monye and presenter Tim Cocker are hosting proceedings. Nearby, fans can attempt to surpass their heroes’ scores on BT Sport’s popular Smash-o-meter.

Aviva’s inflatable bungee run makes a return to Twickenham along with an interactive game and for the first time BT Sport will be bringing their hot air balloon to the Fan Village at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final.

StubHub's ‘3-D selfie' will give fans the chance to grab a memorable Twickenham Stadium photo as well as WINNING a £1,000 StubHub voucher.

Green Flag will be offering their ‘Under the Bonnet’ feature, where fans have to remove miniature rugby items without setting off a sensor.

There will also be the chance to have your face painted and obtain a temporary tattoo, not to mention a host of excellent food and drink outlets – including Guinness’ 14m-diameter inflatable pint pot.

Hall added: "We are very proud of our family of partners and have been so lucky that we have partners who really want to help enhance the spectators’ experience.

"We know that for rugby fans it’s not just about the 80 minutes of action on the pitch and it is important that they have a great pre and post-match experience, which is why we have invested in this area alongside our partners. There’s going to be a lot going on."

"Last year was the first time we had BT Sport involved with the Fan Village and it was an absolute blast. This year Ugo Monye is hosting and he will have some of his famous friends on stage with him."

If you want to be at the world’s biggest club rugby final, this year’s Aviva Premiership Rugby Final is on 28 May at Twickenham, tickets are available from Premiershiprugby.com/final
