Open Training Session at Ricoh Arena

Date: 20 Feb 2019


Wasps Season Members are able to give their side a face-to-face rallying cry ahead of the Club’s big Gallagher Premiership clash against Sale Sharks later this month.

Dai Young’s side are opening up their Captain’s Run at Ricoh Arena to Season Members on Friday 22 February at 10.15am - 24 hours before the home clash against their play-off-chasing rivals - before signing autographs for supporters at 10.45am.

Wasps head into their game with Sale Sharks (kick-off 2pm) looking to do the double over their opponents and strengthen their chances of securing a play-off spot in the Gallagher Premiership.

“Our supporters have a crucial role to play in a season where there is still so much to play for,” said Verity Brown, Community and Matchday Marketing Manager at Wasps.

“It’s been a while since we played a game at the Ricoh, so we thought it was a great opportunity for the players to catch up with supporters and thank them for their continued support ahead of such a key fixture.

“The session also presents the ideal half-term treat for the family to meet their rugby heroes and capture lifelong memories.”

Wasps winger Josh Bassett added: “It’s always nice to meet and greet some of our most loyal fans. At the end of the day they are the ones who come to cheer us on week in week out so it’ll be great for them to come and see how hard we prepare and then having the chance to have a catch-up afterwards.

“This four-game block is huge for us so the team are fully focused and we want everyone to rally behind us for this important stage of the season.”

Those attending Wasps versus Sale Sharks will be able to head to the lower halls of the Ericsson Indoor Arena straight afterwards to catch the heavyweight Guinness Six Nations clash between Wales and England (kick-off 4.45pm).

Season Members attending the Captain’s Run on Friday 22 February should head to the Legends Lounge via Ricoh Arena’s main entrance at 9.30am where supporters are able to have refreshments and find out more aboout 2019/20 Season Memberships.
