The Aviva Premiership Rugby Fan Village will be a hub of excitement on 30 May as fans gather at Twickenham to celebrate English club rugby’s showpiece event.
Rachel Stringer, best known for reporting on BT Sport’s Match Day Live with Fletch and Sav, will be hosting the action in the West Car Park at rugby HQ and is urging fans to get there early to enjoy everything on offer.
Rachel will be providing live updates for fans throughout the day, with the village opening its doors from 11am to 7pm and members of the Aviva Front Row in their yellow t-shirts will be on hand with important details about the day.
“It’s going to be a fantastic occasion and I’m just glad to be a part of it,” said Stringer.
“I can’t think of a better family day out, even kids who might not be able to take in much of what happens out on the pitch will remember the whole experience for the rest of their lives.
“There’s going to be an unbelievable atmosphere in and around Twickenham so I can’t wait to kick it off as host.
“It will be fantastic to see everyone in their team shirts showing their passion for their clubs on the biggest day of the rugby season.”
There will be plenty of entertainment on offer in the Aviva Premiership Rugby Fan Village from the Aviva inflatables to the BT Sport stage, a fantastic new addition to the West Car Park entertainment this year. Matt Dawson and the BT Sport team will be joined on stage by a number of exciting guests who will discuss the brilliant Aviva Premiership Rugby season and the upcoming final. You can return to the West Car Park after the final to watch the team analyse the game live on the BT Sport stage.
People can try and go one better than the Grab a Ticket winners from all 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs by catching as many tickets as they can in 30 seconds to win prizes. And the chance to win prizes doesn’t stop there, car buffs can test their knowledge with the Green Flag ‘Under the Bonnet’ game and StubHub will be running their Lucky Turnstile – fans should download the StubHub App to their mobile and take their match ticket to the turnstile to find out if they’ve won.
In the South car park, Land Rover owners will be offered a fantastic area to soak up the pre-match atmosphere with a complimentary drink and gourmet burger. Owners will also have an exclusive opportunity to glimpse the Webb Ellis Cup and meet rugby legend Lewis Moody.
Land Rover will also be offering youngsters aged seven to 13 a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a Rugby World Cup 2015 mascot. Auditions to be a mascot will take place ahead of kick off alongside the Land Rover area, with two mascot places on offer.
Supporters should also look out for the Land Rover Terrapod where they can experience the latest Land Rover model being taken through its paces – this has to be experienced to be believed!
Along with all of the above there will be plenty of food, drink and the chance to buy club kit to support either of Aviva Premiership Rugby finalists Bath Rugby or Saracens, and the team face painting tent in association with Green Flag will be ready with free face paints as will The Crystals cheerleaders who will be handing out club crest tattoos.
Lastly look out for the Guinness Honesty Bar where fans can choose what they would like to pay for drinks (how honest are you?) and the Pimms Bus, which will have some new recipes on offer.
