Wasps make over 12,000 free tickets available for Coventry schools & rugby clubs

Wasps have today announced that over 12,000 free tickets for three of the Club’s first four games at the Ricoh Arena have been made available for Coventry schools and rugby clubs.

Working in partnership with Coventry Sports Foundation, Coventry Sports Network and Warwickshire RFU, Wasps will distribute the free tickets to the Aviva Premiership Rugby clashes against London Irish on Sunday 21st December 2014 and Sale Sharks on 4th January 2015 as well as the Club's LV= Cup Round Three match against Cardiff Blues on 1st February 2015.

Nick Eastwood, Wasps Chief Executive, said:

"Wasps are absolutely delighted to announce this exciting initiative in partnership with Coventry Sports Foundation, Coventry Sports Network and Warwickshire RFU. Our ambition is to make Wasps as accessible to the community as possible and this is just one of the many ways we are trying to achieve that. Rugby is a game for everyone and we hope initiatives like this will introduce the game to as many people as possible in the Coventry and Warwickshire area.” 

Cllr David Kershaw, Coventry City Council Cabinet Member Education, commented:

"This free ticket offer is a great opportunity for lots of local children to enjoy what could well be their first experience of top flight rugby. We are pleased to be supporting Wasps to establish themselves within our local community and I was delighted to join Paul Sackey when he visited a couple of our schools this week.

"Our sports strategy is helping to ensure that local people have access to sporting opportunities whatever their age. And if watching a game inspires even a few more people to take part, or to support the sport of rugby in the city, we will be delighted." 

Paul Breed, Chief Executive of Coventry Sports Foundation, said:

"Coventry Sports Foundation works in a number of the City's schools and has seen the excitement grow around the announcement of Wasps playing in the City. This is an exciting time for school children and their families to go and watch the first games that Wasps play at the Ricoh Arena. As a City we now have a 10 year sports strategy that aims to encourage more children and young people to take part in sport, using sporting events like this is a great way to inspire them.”
